Grivel G14 Cramp-O-Matic: A well known system which relies on a nylon speed lever in the rear and a stainless steel front bale to hold the boot. Quick to put on, these bindings are perfect for plastic mountaineering boots that have a rigid sole and substantial heel and toe welts. The stainless steel safety strap, which was invented by Grivel, is permanently mounted on the front bale and prevents total loss of the crampon should it be forced off the boot.
G14 has 12 points. The 2 front ones are hot-forged, are replaceable and can be mounted in both bi-point and mono-point configuration. The forging allows a three-dimensional shape to improve both the penetration into the ice, without rebounds, and the support. They can be replaced if worn out. Adjustable central bar. Equipped with the famous Grivel proactive Antibott both in the front and the rear.
