The retractable Fritschi Axion Crampons are a revolutionary concept in alpine touring ski crampons. They deploy with the flick of a ski pole and deactivate with the push of a pole tip.
- Deploy with the flick of a ski pole
- Fits up skis to 86 or 110 mm at waist
- Extra long tines provide increased bite on steep slopes
- This crampon is only compatible with current Fritschi models (Freeride Pro, Scout 11 and Eagle 12)
Fritschi Axion Crampon is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Alex from Great idea, poor reliability While changing our gear to Freeride Pro bindings also have to change crampons to compatible Axion 110. We really loved the idea of retractable crampon that can be switched on and off instantly. I was not sure that it wouldnt compromise downhill performance but I feel no problems. When retracted the crampons work really well. But the real issue is reliability. Plastic parts of the crampon tend to broke unexpectedly. You wan't like the feeling when a crampon fail near ice-covered summit, even if it is only 2000 m. It's a pity there is no alternative without plastic parts. Warranty service was fast and without any problems, thanks a lot to the manufacturer. But after two failures in our small group of friends we can't rely on them any more...
