Kahtoola’s KTS are made with 7075 Aircraft Aluminum. Harness both traction and durability in a single piece of winter gear. Master snowy and icy terrain alike with the lightest aluminum hiking crampons on the market – weighing in at only 19 ounces per pair, they’ll keep you moving without the extra weight. Your pack will thank you, too – these crampons fold down to a compact 8″ x 3.5″ x 3.5″, leaving plenty of room in your pack for all the necessities your winter adventures demand. The KTS Aluminum crampon is the best choice for snow and ice travel when weight is most important.
PATENTED LEAFSPRING® FLEX BAR
Flexes naturally with your footwear, for natural stride and ability to wear any type of footwear. Most crampons are not made to flex and are designed for use with rigid boots. When used with flexible footwear, the extended bar can break due to the added stress for which the bars are not designed. In order to move fast and light in non-technical terrain, flexible footwear is key. A crampon that maintains the flexibility of the footwear while adding traction can be a huge benefit. Kahtoola invented the LeafSpring® Flex Bar to solve this problem by combining multiple layers of thin hardened stainless steel in a novel way that reduces stress and provides an even flex that will last a lifetime.
FOLDING HEEL SUPPORT
