The Sabretooth’s redesigned stainless steel construction incorporates a strong, yet light design with durable horizontal front points and increased rocker in the front rail to accommodate modern mountain boots. The dual secondary points are optimized for technical precision, while still maintaining a balanced, stable platform on descents and lower angle terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpine Workhorse - Does everything This is my second pair of Sabretooth crampons - I really love the versatility of this model. It can handle all conditions with ease - hardpack, rime, vertical ice, mixed.... I can rely on these guys to get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Bought these for a trip of Mt. Baker and some other climbs in the Cascades. Very easy to adjust and put on. Worked great crossing glaciers and some limited vertical ice. Overall a great crampon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, but concerned about previous version Overall great point placement and quality for most conditions. I have the previous version with a tongue on the toe bail. This seems to slide across the bail and twists and bends quite a bit. I assume the tiny dot on the tongue is a spot weld, but I hope is has not been compromised on my last trip to Rainier where the tongue twisted right on that weld. Maybe I don't know how to properly place the strap and thread it through the tongue correctly to keep it in place. Any guidance from BD?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice eq Works nice, used on non technical roads, max slope 45 degrees. Do not but it for lasportiva cube. Does not fit well. I lost it 2 times, but only on the flat part of road ☺️. (No problems on hicking) Friend of mine used it with Scarpa, and fits better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great crampons, but need buying options These are great crampons and easy to get on/off. I have the Pros, and they are rock solid once on. My issue isn’t with the crampons, it’s with the buying options......or lack there of. It would be nice to be able to choose what toe bails and flex bars you need when buying. I wear a size 47 in my La Sportiva Baruntse (double boot), so I had to purchase the Long Flex Bars and Wide Toe Bails to be able to use these with my boots. Didn’t realize I needed the wide bails until I received them, and then had to pay additional shipping for the new bails. Now I have short flex bars and 2 sets of toe bails (narrow and regular), that I have no use for. Could have saved $30 plus cost of shipping, if I was able to choose the parts I needed when buying the crampons initially.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all-around crampons. Dislike toe bails These crampons are fantastic. They cut through the ice well for ice climbing and travel well across glaciers while walking. The are perfect all-around crampons. Only issue: Replacing the toe bails (narrow to wide or vice versa) is horrifically difficult, and scary to do. Try to avoid replacing them as much as possible. My understanding is BD did fix this issue, but a heads up if not. Otherwise, highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All-around Crampon After over a year of using these crampons I have to say I am happy with their performance as a general all-around mountaineering crampon. I have one pair for summer use and another pair devoted completely to ski mountaineering objectives. (I had to modify the front bail as I have a ski boot with a really funky front without a regular welt; bought a second pair rather than having to change things back and forth.) If you do predominantly technical ice or mixed climbing you may want to look at the BD Cyborg or Stinger instead.
