The Spark Sabertooth are the suitable crampones and can be mounted "on the fly" similar to a well known skibinding.
Snap Ramps: That feature enables an extreme easy mount of the binding. You slide it on the puks. When you step into your Magneto binding the Snap Ramp pushes automatically down. The fiddle with the pins is past.
Side-Lock Touring Brackets: makes it easier to slide the binding on your climbing brackets in split-mode. Easy! Just slide it through the holes in the bracket from left to right, Snap Ramp down and here we go! The new fixing of the crampons is mind blowing. You just slide them from left to right into the bracket and you are up to keep on going in hard terrain.
Fatty Climbing Wires and Heel Plate: The double-heel lifter is integrated in the binding. They have the full width to bring pressure properly to your edge. The heel plate protects your top sheet from damages through strong pressure during ascent with heel lifters.
Sabretooth Crampons: The special crampons are reduced in weight again. All moving parts are history and can easily be mounted on the fly.
Voile Puck Compatiblity: The proven Voile pucks are still very reliable and free themselves from snow when the binding gets pushed on. The Tesla system also works with DIY pucks.
