Built on the same hyperlight platform as the XLC 390 with a semi-automatic binding to accommodate boots without a toe welt. Innovative 3-D shaped construction (pressed – not just bent) on the front platform distributes pressure applied to one point across the entire platform significantly increasing the strength of the crampon. The semi-automatic binding is designed for a secure fit on most semi-rigid mountaineering boots. For telemark or A/T boots, use the XLC 390 with automatic bindings. While sturdy, aluminum crampons are not suitable for ice climbing or intensive mixed terrain.

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.
