Kahtoola KTS Crampons use new technology to engineer a central bar that flexes whilst retaining strength and durability. This flex allows KTS crampons to be used with lightweight flexible footwear.

Kahtoola says:

The product that launched us as a company, grab the Kahtoola Traction System (KTS) Crampon when you need serious traction and pack space is at a premium. Designed with folding heel support and independent rear bindings, the KTS is very compact and easily flexes with footwear, ideal for backpacking/hiking and non-technical mountaineering, with an all-metal design that can withstand the most extreme conditions. Snow Release Skins (SRS) included.

Kahtoola's KTS Steel Hiking Crampons are durable steel crampons with large points and a flexible leafspring that allows them to be worn with everything from running shoes to rigid hiking boots. The comprehensive binding system allows the crampons to be attached securely so they won't be dragged off or come adrift, even during high flex activities such as running.

The secret is the underfoot leafspring which has been engineered to cope with such stresses. After all this the KTS crampons are pretty much the lightest steel crampons around with full size points. You can also buy anti balling fittings for them.

KTS crampons are a significant step forward in bringing crampons into the realm of lightweight hikers.

  • 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.
