Ok gentlemen I am new to the game
i would like to pick the brains of the collective consciousness of this splitboard online community :?: :?: :?:
and steepen my learning curve

What advantage will crampons on the split board provide?
what conditions, are they worth the bucks?

They are worth every penny in very firm/icy conditions, especially when traversing. The Sierra spring conditions in the morning before softening is primarily where I use mine. But I don't use them nearly as often since I got wide skins that are cut to the exact size/shape of the boards. Now I find that by the time I need them I just switch into boot crampons and go straight up.

^^^ what he said.

In crusty conditions or icy skin tracks they can also be invaluable.

Crampons are GREAT!

Skinned right up this with the cramps....you can see the glazed over crust.
