The Fritschi Axion crampon gives ski tourers extra support and stability when climbing or traversing on hard snow.
This well designed crampon can be fitted at the start of your day or even tour and activated or deactivated by rotating the metal part of the crampon using your ski pole. So the Axion is always ready to be used without removing your skis and taking your pack off. A real bonus as most people leave it too late and end up messing about with crampons just when they don't want to be.
There are 2 versions of the Axion Crampons:
The Black version which fits the new Scout, Eagle and Freeride Pro bindings only. Available in 2 widths 86mm and 110mm.
The Red version which fits the older Freeride Plus, Explore, and Experience bindings. Available only in 86mm width.
Please note if your bindings AFD does not move from side to side then they can be used with the Axion Crampon.
Customer Reviews of Fritschi Axion Crampon
These ski crampons did their job. In a group of tourers all wearing crampons, these were some of the best.
They stay on the ski - therefore if you hit compact snow, you can flip them down and march straight on through.
They have a left and right, so the outer ski grips the snow, but the inner ski doesn't catch on the other foot (need to remember to put them round the right way!)
They fit well, are sturdy and gripped the snow well.
They can become frozen in position - so moving them isn't as simple as you initially hope.
They can cause (small) damage to other equipment from the upturned spikes when skiing/hiking.
