Great SKI mountaineering crampon

Emphasis on the skiing side. I own several types of crampons, so please take that into account. This is not an all around-er, but excels in its small nitch. For ski mountainering in CO I can mostly get away with boot packing, but on occasion I need crampons and do not face large, hard, high angle ice (at least when I am skiing). So for the most part the crampons stay in the pack, but when needed they must perform well when on hard snow or ice.
I have used these several time with great results - sure attachment (Dynafit style boot only), great on snow and AI 2, held up well on a bit of rock. Best part is the dramatic weight difference from my G-12s, Cyborgs or Saracs. And their compact size, they actually nest perfectly inside my Dynafit ski crampons 110mm.
The instructions are actually helpful in fitting and in the field attachment. Several online articles couldn't understand the ease of entry and resigned to use a screw driver every time.
If you only ski mountaineer with Dynafit boot and wont hit much rock or ice then this are great or if you can have a quiver of crampons to choose from. Other wise buy a good all around-er like the BD Sabertooth.

AT campons only

This is an incredible specific crampon. Correction to the discription they only work with the Dynafit styly AT bindings that accept the two prong heal attachment. It takes quite a bit to addjust these to your boots fiddling with the Dyneema or Dynex runner that replaces the usual bar. But this makes them super light and they can be folded in half. Great for racing of spring ski mountaineering where ice will not be an issue. Bid downer is the price for a very specific product, only if you have the money to own several styles of crampons.
