The Camp XLC 490 Crampons are the lightest 12-point strap-on crampons in the world! Perfect for glacier travel and general mountaineering. Thermoplastic heel and toe harnesses wrap around nearly any hiking and classic mountaineering boot and are secured by strong nylon straps. While sturdy, aluminum crampons are not suitable for ice climbing or intensive mixed terrain. For telemark or A/T boots, use the XLC 390 with automatic bindings (348).

    Best Uses

      Comments about C.A.M.P. XLC 490 Universal Crampons:

      I ordered these crampons for light mountaineering and hiking purposes to go over my Sportiva ECO GTZ hiking boots. My boots are a pretty standard size (9 1/2 men's) so I assumed that they would fit properly. But while I could adjust the length of the crampons, and get the crampons to fit snigly on the boot, the aluminum heel flanges were spaced too narrowly and too far forward, so that there was always about a centimeter or more of crampon jutting out from under the boot. Seems like an easily fixed design flaw.
