  • From Geoff on 22/05/2012

    • Hi there, I'm just wondering what ABS is? I'm looking at climbing some very basic mountains and am trying to find a good basic crampon.

    • Hi Geoff,

      The ABS stands for 'Anti Balling System' which basically means that it has plates to stop snow building up inside the crampon mechanism, which can force the crampons away from the boot if they are not there.

      This is a very useful feature even if you're taking only short walks through snow. The BD Serac Strap are perfect for this, and fit pretty much any type of still soled boot.

    • Hi Geoff
      Are these one size fits all?
      Are they rigid and are they heavy to wear?
    • Hi Lyn,

      Thank you for your email.

      The Black Diamond Serac Stainless Strap Crampon with ABS are mostly one size fits all. They have an adjustable centre bar that will fit most sizes, however if you have a larger/longer foot, you may need to purchase a longer centre bar. They are fairly rigid, but again it depends on the boot you are wearing.

      The strap version weighs only 860grams which isn't particularly heavy when you factor in the weight of your boots already.

      I hope this helps.
