With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

Grivel Air Tech New-Matic Crampon

Season : AW21

Brand : Grivel

Code : 5004392

The Grivel Air Tech New- Matics are excellent multi-use crampons.  In many ways an ideal crampon for winter walking and mountaineering in the UK, and indeed classic alpinism in the mountains of Europe.  These crampons benefit from low weight and low profile, they are dexterous and easy to walk in.  They excel on mixed terrain, as the points are a little shorter than many, more traditional crampons.  This means you feel more planted, not up on 'stilts', when crossing rock and they feel light, precise and nimble.  They are an intelligently designed modern crampon that bridges the gap between a walking crampon and mountaineering crampon.  Because of this the Air tech will fit a wider range of B1/B2 footwear

The Air Tech New-Matic Crampons lack the very aggressive front points of the Grivel G12 and G14, so are less well suited to more technical or vertical terrain, but for the majority of users the Air Tech's cover most bases.  They represent an excellent modern walking/mountaineering 12 point crampon design and definitely blur the boundaries between the old C1/C2 ratings.

Due to their lightness, versatility and small pack size, the Grivel Air Tech NMs will also appeal to Ski Mountaineers and alpine trekkers.

Technical Information
  • Ten points in contact with ice while you’re walking, 12 that bite into the slope during traverses.
  • This has been made possible because the third pair of points are shorter and wider apart. On top of this the last two front points have a double angulation to maintain bite when descending or traversing sideways.
  • The crampons points are short and designed for the new requirements of “mixed modern’s” alternating ice and rock. Sharp points are ideal for anchoring on ice “cauliflowers” and when in traction or adherence.
  • Even the soles of the most modern boots are perfectly covered. Semi-rigid model in one adjustable size.
  • The bar can be regulated by hand, in two different lengths.
  • Each pair includes anti balling plates
  • Points: 10+2
  • Weight: 31.3 ozs or 888gr
  • Size: Fit sizes 35-46

  • Grivel Air Tech New-Matic Crampon Review by Andy Winter,  On 11/02/2010 23:25:49

    Easy to use, secure rapid clip system. Great they come with antiballing stuff already fitted. Could do with an elastic band on the outer strap to hold the folded excess strap length.
  • Grivel Air Tech New-Matic Crampon Review by Rodger W,  On 01/12/2010 18:54:42

    Both of us have had a pair for 3 winters, use: mountain walking. Used in the Lakes and Scottish Highlands, very easy to put on in bad weather, totally secure when on. Whether on gentle ice slope or steep corrie, feel safe. Worth their weight in gold
  • Grivel Air Tech New-Matic Crampon Review by Phil,  On 24/02/2015 22:32:08

    A great fit, and so much easier to attach than my old pair. Have yet to test them in the right conditions; not much ice in Cornwall!!!
