Leverlock Universal Bindings
Petzl’s Leverlock Universal bindings consist of the Fil and FilFlex systems, meaning you swap out the toe binding for compatibility with with ski boots, mountaineering boots with a heel and toe welt and mountaineering boots with just a heel welt. A versatile solution for technical routes and stiffer boots.
Petzl’s New Modular Crampons
Petzl’s reworked crampons feature a brand new modular design, meaning you can switch the front sections for front sections of other Petzl crampons. Now you can have just one pair of crampons for everything, all you need to do is change the front sections, which saves plenty of pennies and means you can walk, climb and dry-tool in total confidence. Models with this system include the Vasak, Dartwin, Dart, Lynx and Irvis.
Petzl’s Antisnow plates are fitted to the bottom of your crampons and help to prevent snow building up and clumping around the points. This is particularly useful if you want to use your crampons for walking and glacier travel.

Adjustable front points that can be mono or dual, and configured to the following settings for the following uses:
- long mono-point for dry tooling
- long dual-point for gullies
- asymmetrical dual-point for mixed climbing
- short dual-point for ice climbing
