DART crampons are ideal for extreme mixed and ice climbing. The mono-point is designed to displace less ice and make for precise placements on micro-edges. The third row of points is angled towards the rear for hooking in steep terrain or around ice columns. Ultra-light.
Horizontal structure places the foot as close to the ice as possible, for increased sensitivity and more precise placements
Toe bail wire has two positions for perfect fit on all sole thicknesses, and can be adjusted to fit technical boots with asymmetrical shapes
Point lengths designed for maximum stability without having to high-step
Sharp points for great purchase in ice
Forged front point is toothed for precise placements and purchase
Two toothed points angled forward to reinforce purchase and give support when front-pointing
Two toothed points angled backwards for inside or outside edging
Four teeth for stability when descending facing downhill
Side points for purchase while traversing
Front section can be replaced if the front point is worn

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.

The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
