Product Description

Dual point crampons for ice climbing

A version of the DART for those who prefer the added stability and holding power of two front points.


* Horizontal structure places the foot as close to the ice as possible: increased sensitivity, more precise placements
* Two positions for front wire: fits all sole thicknesses and asymetric shapes of technical boots
* Length of points is designed to assure maximum stability
* Tapered points for great purchase in ice
* Toothed and forged front points for precise positioning and placements
* Second row of toothed points are inclined forward for improved placements and front point support
* Third row of toothed points are inclined towards the rear for backstepping or using instep
* Four teeth for stability while descending face downhill
* Lateral points for purchase while traversing
* Front section can be replaced if the front points are worn from mixed climbing

The Dartwin was the option for me, when Petzl made the Sarken recall.
I climb the Dartwin for two years now and cant say that I miss anything.
The front points are long and strong enough, the placement is great and the durability is awesome.
The sidelock Binding was a little bit unusual in the beginning, but after a few times i really love that binding system.
