Designed for ice and snow travel, the lightweight Black Diamond Contact crampon is ideal for mountaineers, skiers and hikers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cool and quick Great product. Cool quick and secure. Basic and beyond!!!!!!! February 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! My first pair, used for the first time on the coldest day of the year in upstate N.Y. with 4 foot snow drifts. (now i need snow shoes) Easy to put on, they stayed in place, light weight and gave great traction. Had no issues with getting caught up on the front cleats and maintained a good stride. I used these for intermediate to advanced day hiking and could not be happier. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by outstanding product These crampons are ideal for trekking with flexible hiking boots. My winter outings often involve 9 - 10 mile hikes including steep but not technical mountainous conditions. When changing between showshoes and crampons, these go on and come off quickly, won't damage your boots, and hold tight without creating pressure points on the feet. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice alpine tools I bought this for alpine trip and I have also used it for ice climbing but in quebec the ice needs more agressive teeths than this but for intermediate routes it's a great product! Thanks BD! May 31, 2014
