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.
New technical, hybrid and modular 13-point crampons, with interchangeable front points, designed to deal with the steepest and hardest ice walls and mixed climbing in the world, and to adapt to all your needs in every situation. The crampons are sold with a mono-point setup, with HOOK and BLADE points.
These are the possible configurations:
- Mono-point with a single BLADE point (retail configuration): the BLADE point is laterally mounted onto the mono-point, enabling you to have greater precision for lateral engagement on small edges, both on ice and on rock, increasing the technicality of the crampon. This also gives greater support when climbing frontal on snow and ice without compromising the mobility of the heal. Giving an ideal setup for a technical mixed route or for dry-tool training.
- Mono-point with a single HOOK point (A): the HOOK point, alone, is to be given preference on icefalls, as it is able to penetrate better into the different morphology of the ice, increasing the efficiency and accuracy.
- Dual-point with a dual HOOK point (B): the dual HOOK points enable you to have a greater surface of support on icefalls with classic difficulty and for use on big walls that are predominantly full of snow and ice.
- hardened steel structure with a shaped frontal part to better adapt to the curved shape of modern boots;
- technical toothed front points that penetrate even the hardest of ice;
- removable second accessory front points, to be used individually in combination with the single point HOOK:
- BLADE: auxiliary technical front point for precise and gentle lateral purchase;
- HOOK: second front technical point;
- toothed second row of front points, studied in detail to stick to any edge in any direction providing great support for the climber;
- innovative third row of front points, flat, toothed and with different lengths (externally long and internally short) in order to make the support on the terrain more stable and ergonomic;
- innovative macro-adjustment system, ultra-quick and easy to move between the two shoe size ranges EU 36÷43 / 42÷47;
- new adjustment size system with a double lever, easy to use even with just one hand;
- heel piece with rear flaps to ensure precise positioning of the boot on the crampon, even in the smaller sizes;
- interlocking interchangeable ANTIBOTTS equipped with bellows that prevent snow build-up beneath the crampons;
- own carry bay included.

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.
