CAMP Crampons Product Description

Here is the number one fact about CAMP's Ferrari crampon, the Vector Nanotech.

***Sandvik Nanoflex steel alloy is rated 20% lighter & 60% stronger than normal steel.***

The 14 point Vector Nanotech are the boldest crampons in the industry, made for the boldest conditions in alpinism and water ice climbing!

Just out of the box, I began to pry and pull at the shiny thin, 1.8mm sidewalls to see if I could get them to budge. I could not do it. I was brutal with them on the ice. Bashing them into the ice made me realize the Nanotechs are stronger and better then I could of ever imagine.

The steel's thickness is down almost a complete millimeter from the standard 2.75mm and the weight differential is very noticable compared to my Black Diamond crampons too. Don't reach for the file so fast, mister. The Nanotech is not going to dull as quick as any other crampon on the market. Nor are they going to rust.

Numerous settings are available for sizing with a variety of other features like offsetting positions or replacing front point with mono points, anti-balling plates, and a super stealth carrying bag (included).

These have been re-branded as Cassin products and the Nanotech version is limited edition. It took me a while to find an online retailer. Knowing Sandvik from my field of work I didn't think twice about getting them.

They are noticeably light and compact, yet very sturdy when fit right on a proper boot. I didn't have the chance to kick them into water ice as I got them quite late in the season, but on alpine ice and dry tooling they performed great.

Anti balling plates are not included, and on this type of crampons (cookie-cutter frame) are absolutely necessary.

KaiAnti Balling Plates Suck

Voted 2/5

As noted by the previous poster, anti balling plates are absolutely necessary on this type of crampon. Sadly, the anti-balling plates are a bad joke. They won't stay on the crampon and ice and snow just pack the frame.
