I love my G-12s

I got lucky with some sort of pricing mistake and ended up with these when I was just browsing.
I have since taken them up the Matterhorn, all over the White Mountains (NH) and vertical Ice climbing.
They are excellent "universal" crampons. with 12-points and aggressive teeth, they can do anything that an 8 or 10 point will do, albeit more ungainly, but also rock and ice climb. They're tough, and so far unbreakable. I've debated getting a more flexible 10 point for light alpinism and a stiff vertical-front-point pair of ice climbing crampons, but these simply do it all. They are ideally suited to AD-D Mountaineering, because they shed glacial or soft snow very well, and can rock and ice climb on the front points.
I highly recommend anything Grivel makes, they simply set the standard and everyone else just tries to keep up or reach towards more recreational consumers.
The Anti-Bot plates on the Grivel crampons are rounded bubbles that flex to imperceptibly *pop* the snow right off with every step. No other crampon that I know of can do the same. All brands can keep the snow from between your boot, but only Grivels shed it below too.
Consider your type of climbing/hiking carefully, and ask people in the know, but these are great :)

Great all around cramp-ons

Grivel makes some of the best ice climbing gear, hands down, and the G-12 cramp-ons are no exception. These are a great all-around cramp-ons. Their chromoly-steel construction holds up great in mixed ice and rock climbing and they grip incredibly well. I've used mine in the Cascades in mixed climbing conditions as well as in heavy snow pack in the San Bernardino Mountains in Southern California. So far they've held up perfectly in both scenarios and their bindings secure them to your boot comfortably (mine fit perfectly to my size 11.5 boot). The Anti-Bot mechanism is also very handy in preventing snow buildup when trudging along through fresh wet snow.

The Best Crampons on the Market

I used to use the Grivel 2F and was real bummed that when it was time to replace them that they were no longer available. I then purchased G12's and I absolutely love everything about them. The strap system with the heel lock is easy to use and the crampons feel secure to my boots.
The antibots are great as snow no longer balls up under the crampon which is inconvenient and dangerous.
They weight does not bother me because it makes me feel that these crampons are durable. I belive these will last many years!

great combination

These are a great general purpose crampon, additionally is spare parts are available so that you can convert them to full-auto or strap on when you buy new boots. They come with Anti-bots with an accordion piece for the bar so the risk of balling is reduced.

awesome traction, easy to use

After trying a few Black Diamond offerings, I felt this was the best solution for my Alpine Boots. The higher-end Black Diamonds always require a lot of adjustment (the toe lock was a pain). These go on easily, stay put and keep you put on the ice.

performed up to its name on Elbrus, paired with Scarpa boots.. good combination. already checked with Invernos - good fit as well. Good looking, world classic. Recommended.

Negative Reviews:

Sizing Way Off

The previous reviews were good. But the sizing is way off. I wear a 12 & I couldn't get my hiking boot to fit, let alone my mountaineering boots.The Product looks good If you wear a size 10, it shouldn't be a problem. If you have a size 11, bring your boots to the store if you are lucky enough to live near one.
