Ski crampon / harsheisen that fits Tecton and Vipec.
The Traxion is the first ski crampon to allow adjustment of penetration depth (I know, how did we ever manage before). A rotating cap allows you adjust how much below the sole of your boot the crampon will penetrate. Changing your heel lifter height also affects penetration depth.
The Traxion crampon attaches with 2 spring pins.

Not compatible with other Fritschi bindings.

Just back from a tour in the Western Oberland where I used these crampons for the first time. They appear to have been designed by someone who's never seen snow or ice! The pins are operated by simple levers either side, and these ice up really, really easily. I could only remove the crampons with the aid of a Leatherman tool's pliers, as the ice in the mechanism meant that I couldn't press the levers inwards sufficiently far to release the pins.
In use, they're fine - much like any other ski crampon. Come on Diamir - give us something up to the job!
Made to Diamir's high standard, these are designed specifically to fit onto the Diamir Vipec 12 binding. They are easily attached and removed by a simple spring mechanism.
Their robust, yet lightweight construction, give the advantage of a quality ski crampon which supports the weight saving gained from Diamir's safety pin binding set up: essential for the weight conscious ski tourer.
I would recommend they are kept in a stuffbag / pouch whilst carried in a rucksack, as they are sharp!
Brilliant product - simple design, effective and easy to fit on the go.
I was a little worried initially that there was no return spring or connection that would mean it didn't release from the snow when moving forward but this wasn't a problem in practice.
The only crampon available if you've got the Vipec bindings, and they work really well.
Attachment and removal is quick thanks to the the levers, though it looks like these could be prone to icing up – time will tell.
The adjustable plastic lug on the crampons are a must, and without them there wouldn't be any penetration on the top step.
Size-wise, the 90mm crampons fit perfectly on my K2 WayBack 88s.
Usual high Daimar quality - light, well made, good materials. They are pretty quick and easy to fit without stepping out of your skis (although not as easy as the ones which just fold down like on my previous Freeride Pro bindings - remember to get them out before it gets too hairy!). It pays to make sure the binding is free of any snow and not iced up before fitting. The adjustable depth seems a little gimmicky and I haven't found much advantage in using the 'shallow' setting when not using the heel risers. You do want to make sure they're not set on 'shallow' if you are on the heel risers otherwise you're not getting much penetration... 4 rather than 5 is because of this.
