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: Need a crampon that’s going to answer to your demands? Our KTS Steel Hiking Crampons are made from Chromoly steel with 1 inch points. Ultralight and weighing only 23.3 ounces per pair, you’ll be able to tackle the most rugged terrain without any extra weight to haul around.
The KTS steel hiking crampons fold down into an ultra compact package (8” x 3½” x 4¾”) to save pack space, leaving plenty of room in your pack for all the necessities your winter adventures demand. Be sure to check out our Tote Sack and Snow Release Skins to complement your crampons.
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.
