CAMP Blade Runner Alpine Crampon -

The C.A.M.P. Cassin Blade Runner Alpine Crampon represents a new era in technical ice crampons. A wealth of innovative features combine to create a crampon that conforms to the ergonomics of modern boots, increases rigidity along the entire length of the crampon without decreasing dexterity or compromising fit, adapts to alpine conditions with a variety of front points and toe bail configurations, and naturally reduces balling with its inverted V-shaped front platform.
The patented heel slide integrates the linking bar with the heel piece for better torsional rigidity. This allows the Blade Runner to offer the best of both worlds by combining the power and stability of vertical frame crampons with the precision and ease of adjustment of horizontal frame designs. The entire heel slide is constructed from proprietary Sandvik Nanoflex steel: an amazingly strong and tough stainless steel that allows for a reduction in the thickness of the frame from 2.75 mm to 1.8 mm, thereby reducing weight while simultaneously increasing strength and providing the right amount of longitudinal flexibility for a precise fit on modern boots with more extreme rocker. The front platform is constructed from traditional chromoly steel alloy to absorb impact energy and maintain solid rigidity under foot. The elimination of connection joints leaves little room for play and reduces much of the flex that can make crampons seem less secure on technical terrain.
The sophisticated geometry of the front points interact with the secondary points on the main frame for easy penetration and superior hold even in the most fickle conditions. Switching the front points between dual and mono, centered or offset is made easy with the hook and notch system on the rear contact point. The optional snow points convert the Blade Runner into all mountain machines with their beveled design and precise shape and spacing that maximizes purchase in ice and hard snow. Optional semi-automatic toe bails also allow the Blade Runner to be used on boots without rigid toe lugs – a great feature for alpine climbing where the bulky toe lug reduces sensitivity and performance on rock.

Camp USA - Cassin states that its Blade Runner Alpine Crampon is the most versatile and technical ice crampon on the market for ice, mixed, and alpine climbs, and for good reason. It has an innovative heel slide that integrates the linking bar with the heel piece for better torsional rigidity, and it combines the power and stability of vertical frames with the precision and easy adjustment of horizontal frames. Made with Sandvik Nanoflex steel, the heel slide is incredibly strong for how thin it is, and it provides the right amount of flexibility throughout the crampon. Cassin made the front platform out of Cromoly steel to absorb impacts and maintain solid rigidity under your foot, and it reduces the flexibility and play that makes you feel insecure on technical terrain.
The Blade Runner offers easy penetration on icy precipices and a superior hold even in ever-changing conditions. You can switch the front points between dual and mono, centered or offset quickly and easily thanks to the hook and notch system. Semi-automatic toe bails and anti-balling plates give your boot a secure fit regardless of whether your boot has rigid toe lugs or not. And an asymmetric design follows the contours of your boot to ensure a precise fit that gives you the confidence you need to send successfully.

Bravo!

These 'pons do it all! Steep ice? Yep. Sport mixed climbing? Check. General mountaineering? Uh huh. Most climbers have a multitude of crampons for all styles of climbing. The Blade Runners can be easily configured to do nearly everything. They fit every pair of boots I own (including my skimo boots) very well thanks to the optional toe basket. The shape and angle of the vertical points penetrate hard ice with ease and the generous secondary points engage well when sitting on your heels. They're much lighter than many of the popular steel crampons. They're expensive, but they replace almost my entire quiver.
