Kahtoola KTS Steel Hiking Crampon



Safely tackle the most demanding winter hiking conditions in our most capable, adjustable and packable crampon. A folding heel support means KTS™ collapses down into a small package you can take anywhere, and an infinitely adjustable, independent front and rear binding system makes dialling in the perfect fit a breeze. For added comfort and range of motion, our patented LeafSpring® Flex Bar technology, allows the ankle and foot to move independently.


  • Ten 1 inch long chromoly steel spikes
  • Leafspring® Flexbar moves with the foot
  • Adjustable binding system
  • Folding heel bail for packability
  • Lightweight, replaceable Snow Release Skins


  • Leafspring® Flexbar Technology - When used with flexible footwear, our unique, patented flex bar system moves with the foot to ensure a wide range of motion.
  • 10 Independent 1 Inch Long Chromoly Steel Spikes - Our most aggressive spikes are strategically placed so they provide a very stable platform for walking, while tearing deep into hard ice and snow.
  • Folding Heel Bail - Collapses down for maximum packability.
  • Lightweight, Replaceable Snow Release Skins - These allow the snow buildup that often comes with warmer temperatures to clear itself from the bottom of the crampon.
  • Independent Front and Rear Binding System - The KTS™ binding system is infinitely adjustable and allows the ankle and foot to flex naturally for maximum range of motion when used with flexible footwear.
