Black Diamond Center Bars Reviews:


These things work as described. I have size 14 boots and they are plenty long enough. They are super stiff, even more so than the standard center bars that came with my crampons. This isn't an issue with mountaineering boots or super stiff backpacking boots but if you are going to hike for long distances with these I would recommended getting the flexible center bars; your feet will thank you for it!

Very nice - black diamond quality!

It is rather unfortunate that this do not come as an option when purchasing crampons. I knew that I will need those. I was lacking 1/4 of an inch on the standard ones and had to buy these. Now I have a pair of standard linking bars that have not use, little unfair that big dudes have to pay extra price. Otherwise: no complaints, nice thick metal and very sturdy.

Do what they say they're gonna do

Simple-they do what they say they're gonna do. Make crampons fit for those of us with larger feet...and you know what they say about guys with big feet....that's right, black diamond makes us pay more so their crampons will fit! I would like to see BD make the standard bars a little longer so they fit everyone...or offer the long bars standard on every few crampons they ship out.

Fit great in my Camp crampons, which then were able to fit my Sorel boots.
