An evolution in the species. Our G-14 crampons combine the technical performance of forged, vertical frontpoints with the low profile, collapsible frame of the G-12 to make an altogether fresh, modular, and customizable crampon suited to many climbing disciplines. Our success and experience with the Rambo crampons reinforces the validity of forged points: they penetrate hard ice better, with less vibration, and offer the opportunity to combine vertical and horizontal axis. Front points are simple to configure on the G14, allowing the user to build mono or dual point crampons and replace worn points easily. The low profile of the crampon frame places the climber's foot closer to rock or ice, and is less prone to balling up. At last, alpine climbing crampons with the technical performance of their ice and modern mixed counterparts. The G14 crampon is delivered with the Antibott included.

G14 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: go_dyno, 2007-02-15

I have the Crampomatics. These things are GREAT. The newer G14 with the bird head shaped tabs on rear for heal are much better and fit a wider range of boots narrow or wide than the old square tabs which only fit wider heeled boots well. Toe bail can be moved forward or rearward for different boot types and shaping bail with a hammer to your boot is easy. New antibot system is much better than the antibot system on my G12's. These poons can do it all, but if they would make some replaceable "horizontal" points for these then they would do it all perfectly and I could sell my G12 and Charlet Moser S12's.

A great all around water ice poon. I prefer horizontal frontpoints for alpine/neve. But these are a workhorse poon perfect for a newer climber. Only gripes are how much webbing is always floating around, and that the secondary points don't stick out enough for me.

I have been using G14 for two years - a full season in the Alps and one in Eastern Tibet. They perform very well on both steep ice and mixed terrain. I use them as monopoints and they give me as much confidence as one can possibly get from ice gear. I tried them even for dry-tooling and have not find any fault yet.

I have the “Newmatic” model which features a plastic toe harness since the bots I use (Kayland) have a narow front. I felt a bit uneasy about the plastic craddle at the begining but got used to it in time. One can supplement it with a wire for a normal craddle which the model allows.

In three words: great (all-around) crampon.

Best crampon I've tried. I wish I could review it again. Light and verstaile. I've used them for steep, fat ice and thin, delictate mixed work, as well as on Rainier for glacier travel. I am looking forward to replacing my front points, and the new antibott plates are tougher, can be left on with less hassle and work better.
