Forums Splitboard Talk Forum PSA: Grivel Crampons Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total)Author Posts December 9, 2008 at 8:22 pm #570818 Will 377 PostsHey out there, I was talking to a friend at a local mountaineering shop here in Bozeman that told me that Grivel USA has gone under. The Grivel G10 Wide crampon has lots of fans on this site, one of the boot crampons that works well with snowboard boots. After some hunting I bought a set off the web through Zappos, there were only a few left. After those are gone you’ll probably have to get them through a European shop. If anyone out there knows more about this I’d be curious to know what the dilly is.Happy shopping!

We did our best over the last few years to keep the company alive but the flagging US economy and the Euro’s strength against the dollar prevented us from doing so.Retail customers may contact the following dealers to purchase Grivel ice axes, crampons, helmets, ice screws, packs and some replacement parts while supplies remain.The Mountaineer http://www.mountaineer.comMountain Gear http://www.mountaingear.comRecreational Equipment, Inc. http://www.rei.comSecond Ascent http://www.secondascent.comMountain Equipment Co-Op (Canada only) http://www.mec.caWarranty and repair issues must wait until Grivel determines how they will service the North American market in the future. Stand by for more information.I thank the individuals who used Grivel ice tools and crampons and believed in the performance enough to keep doing so year after year.To view the complete line of Grivel products or more information surf to: http://www.grivel.com December 9, 2008 at 9:22 pm #611809 HikeforTurns 1113 Postswow, thanks for the heads up, I got a pair from Zappos. they only have 3 left, get on it!!

Have done it in the past for my ultralight DMM ski mountaineering harness and will do it again as needed.165 Venture Divide/Spark Frankenburners/La Sportiva Spantiks 163W Jones Solution/Phantom Alphas/Dynafit TLT5s 162 FurbergChris December 12, 2008 at 6:26 pm #611813 nothingmuch 358 PostsGrivel fans, I have found the answer December 12, 2008 at 6:32 pm #611814 96avs01 875 Posts @nothingmuch wrote:Grivel fans, I have found the answerI’ll stick with G14s :headbang:165 Venture Divide/Spark Frankenburners/La Sportiva Spantiks 163W Jones Solution/Phantom Alphas/Dynafit TLT5s 162 FurbergChris December 12, 2008 at 6:56 pm #611815 HikeforTurns 1113 PostsHahahaha those are sweet!

They do make ultralight nuts though, to shed weight on those tough mixed routes that could test the “strenght” of your crampons.
