Grivel G22 Crampon -
Grivel took its revolutionary G20 crampon, celebrated for its unprecedented lightness and quick-climbing, technical design, and added a second front point for versatility when contacting the ice. The result is the semi-rigid Grivel G22 Crampon. The G22 comes with either a Cramp-O-Matic binding for use with plastic-soled boots that have substantial welts or the more adaptable New-Matic binding for use with virtually any boot, including those with shallow front welts or overboots.


  • Asymmetric shape creates an ergonomic fit and intuitive performance


  • Size range 37-48 european


  • Cramp-O-Matic binding’s front stainless steel safety strap prevents crampon from falling off if forced off your boot


  • Made in Italy
  • Made from chromoly steel with two hot-forged front points (12 points total)


  • New-Matic binding utilizes rear bale and lever with durable dual-component DuPont Zytel plastic harness—versatile, simple, and efficient
  • The lightest dual point tech crampon: 930g with the included front and rear antiballing plates!
  • Antibott plate alleviates irritating and dangerous front and rear balling beneath the crampon
  • New-Matic binding's harness should be replaced after prolonged and intense use
  • CE and UIAA Certified
  • New, patented Mono-Rail technology distributes the 12 points in an intelligent and original way—provides ice penetration power and increases your climbing efficiency

This crampon is the evolution of the G20 model that has established the new standard of lightness in the technical crampons. The new MONO-RAIL technology (patented) distributes the points in an intelligent and original way.

The New-Matic binding is a n evolution of the Cramp-O-Matic system which utilises the C-O-M rear bale and lever. The plastic harness system is hinged from two front posts which retain the boot securely even if it has a shallow, worn front welt or overboots are being used. It is a simple and efficient binding, being far more versatile than the original Cramp-O-Matic style. Made in dual-component plastic: the black part is stronger, bearing the strain whilst the yellow part is softer, increasing adherence to the boot. The harness is made from the strongest, most durable plastic available -Zytel DuPont, which was developed for the manufacture of alpine ski bindings. Obviously it cannot last forever, so please, after long and severe use replace the harness the same way you would resole trekking boots or rock climbing shoes.

Grivel G22 Crampon Reviews:


The toe bail is asymetrical, a good fit for my Sportiva Makalu, but that boot is unsuitable for the vertical ice this crampon is designed for. Perhaps they fit as well on Nepal EVO.
For my Koflach Arctis Expe, not so much. That is, until I relocated the bail wire to the center hole on the inside and rearward hole on the outside. In that position the bail gets a solid, secure and even bite across more than 3/4 of the front welt.
A minor annoyance, snow gathers between the center bar and boot. Not a safety issue or a deal breaker, just a little annoying.

The Grivel G22 has a functional and inovative design that I have not seen with other brands. This semi-rigid crampon offered solid kicks into ice and the anti-bot plates did their job as well. I used these on a mixed route called Dreamweaver in RMNP and was pleased with their performance and durability.
