Camp Ice Rider 2009
The Camp Ice Rider is a basic but thoughtful design that boasts all the essential features you expect from a mountaineering crampon. There are 12 long points to give a grip in deep snow and ice, while the front spikes get some 3D stamping to improve strength. Adjustment is easy thanks to a sprung clip design that locks the length, plus a heel clip and toe binding for ease of fitting. The anti-balling plates are supplied pre-assembled, and they don’t need any tools to replace them. A good set of instructions explain the details with diagrams. A crampon bag is also supplied in the box. All that for just £80 is hard to beat on price. But at 1060g per pair the Camp Ice Rider is quite a heavy crampon. The anti-balling plates are basic flat pieces of rubber, and the spikes lack serrations for dealing with rock.
