I don't know if this is already in the TLT5 thread but I don't remember seeing it.

Used to be it was B&D making a compatible crampon.
Dynafit now makes them up to 130mm

http://www.dynafit.com/product/bindings/dynafit-crampon

Unfortunately I have about a 132 width waist.
Going to bend em or dremel out some material.

Anyone with a similar experience?

Old pair of Burton crampons
Remove some material.
Had to make a clap for fixed mode, but they work great.

Cheers

Wow. Good idea, firstlight. Might have found a use for my old burton crampons that I've never even managed to give away, let alone use.

It seems to me, that the new Sabretooth crampons from Spark R&D for the Tesla system will be dynafit compatible and in the widths 138mm and 148mm :wink:

FaDe
Already inquired about this and they are not compatible but they may be making on to suit!
The boot length variation will be the issue with it in fixed mode.
I came across this when I made mine and has to make custom tongues to suit my boot length.

Fingers crossed they come up with something that will work on most boot shell sizes

So after hitting up Mt Adams with BS over the weekend, I finally got to see his hardboot setup. I liked the easy attachment of the Dynafit crampons. I would definitely add the heel riser from my Mr Chomps for that added grip on steeps and hollow it out a bit like the homemade firstlight crampons. His crampons were reliable unlike the Sparks version. Only one of my ski crampons stayed put. The other kept falling off. This seems to be a common problem with the Mr Chomps for some reason. This got me to thinking...

Is there a Dynafit type crampon bracket that can be added using the standard touring bracket holes on a splitboard allowing me to use the Dynafit crampons for my softboot binding setup? Perhaps some plate that can be screwed under my touring bracket.

Hi Ken,

There is, but it's designed to match up to the Dynafit hole pattern, not the splitboard hole pattern. I've quiver killed my board for my Dynafit toepieces, so it works for my setup, so I can use the B and D ski crampons on my split, with my Dynafit toe pieces.

My local ski shop had a couple of the crampon brackets laying around and just gave me a pair. You should try to get hold of a pair, then I bet you could rig a small plate or something to create the interface between the board holes and the crampon bracket holes.

You might be able to use the B and D Fritschi crampon kit to make something work. I'm not sure how the front mount/pivot mounts to the Fritschi binding but I bet you could mount it near your touring bracket in a similar way.
