A 10-point aluminum crampon for snow climbing and ski mountaineering, the Neve is the go-to choice for lightweight performance.
Neve Crampon says:
Designed for moderate snow climbing while approaching alpine rock routes or ski mountaineering objectives, the Black Diamond Neve crampon features a 10-point aluminum design for lightweight functionality. Two different attachment configurations accommodate both technical and non-technical footwear, while the aggressive yet flexible construction keeps you moving quickly and confidently on steep, snowy terrain.
The Black Diamond Neve Crampon is a lightweight aluminium 10 point crampon for use on easy angled snow and ice where a steel crampon would be overkill. It is available as the Neve Strap and Neve Pro. This is the Neve Strap which is designed for use on softer footwear such as hiking/trekking boots and approach/running shoes, although the strap design means they will fit on rigid footwear too.
They Neve Crampons are perfect for ski touring and glacier travel and for short snow/ice sections found on alpine rock routes. They have decent front points for steeper ground but will wear very quickly if used on rock and need regular sharpening.
