Petzl Vasak Leverlock Universal
New for 2016, the Petzl Vasak FlexLock Universal Crampons are classical mountaineering crampons built for all-round winter use, from ski alpinism to mellow ice routes. Thanks to a new steel compound, the Petzl Vasak Crampons have a thinner, lighter frame, meaning they’re more compact and easy to carry, while retaining the wide, horizontal front point of the original Vasak for good grip on hard snow. As part of Petzl’s new and innovative crampon range, the Vasak Flexlock is modular, featuring interchangeable front sections that are compatible with all other Petzl crampons, so you can mix and match to suit your needs.

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.
