Review: Black Diamond Cyborg Crampons

Black Diamond’s new Cyborg crampons may not the lightest on the market, but they'll last forever—no need to get new ones when your front points go out; just hop on the Web and order up another set. BD has also ditched the paint job—the stainless steel shine always keeps them looking new and puts BD ahead of the curve: it saves weight, sheds snow, and it's more durable because the points will last longer then traditional chromoly steel. Whether you fancy steep waterfall ice or technical dry tooling, these are your best all-around, do-it-all crampons. Available at Northern Lights. $200;
