The Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro is a proven winter traction device for snow and ice travelling over diverse terrain and in severe weather conditions. The integral design of the Pro version has taken the known benefits of ice crampons and combined those elements with an ease of use and flexible mobility to surpass the comfort of conventional crampons.
Although it resembles the shape of ice climbing crampons, this Pro version is designed for alpine travel under extreme weather conditions, not for technical ice climbing.
Made from heat-treated S50C carbon steel, the 10-point Trail Crampon PRO weighs only 680g per pair, making it ideal for glacier travel and icy or snow approaches. Utilizing simple ratchet buckle binding, these crampons can be fitted to most footwear effortlessly.
The X-shaped polycarbonate harness system minimises pressure points often found in conventional crampons. Ratchet buckle system makes them quick to fit and remove. Anti-snow pads help prevent potentially dangerous underfoot snow build-up.
I hiked up Mt Arthur a couple of weekends ago but couldn't get to the top due to snow and wind. Determined to reach the top I brought the crampons and scaled up to the top the following weekend in perfect conditions, for the first time!
