A classic 12-point crampon designed for general mountaineering, mixed ice and rock climbing, and moderate waterfall routes.

Grivel's G12 New Matic Crampons are classic 12-point C2 crampons designed for general mountaineering, alpinism, mixed and ice climbing, and moderate waterfall routes. 

These are about 950g per pair, so not a beginner’s crampon, but if you’re an experienced walker looking for the edge on dangerous ground, these can help. 

The four points that are perpendicular to the crampon rails, prevent shearing in soft snow and improve security while descending (facing outward). Because the four points are rotated through 90 degrees they make inclines easier and safer.

The G12 is easily folded for transportation and is delivered with the Antibott included (AntiBott are the anti-balling plates which work like bubbles- popping off snow that has compacted and balled up,, meaning you don’t have to keep stopping to dig your crampons out. )

The crampons are fully adjustable by hand, without tools, and one size fits all (up to size 47 - for larger sizes the Long Extension Bar is needed). This is a very handy feature when you’re miles from civilization, and make packing or an ice climbing trip slightly lighter! 

To protect your G12 New Matic in your bag you may also want to consider attaching Crampon Crowns

just the job for big winter walks/ scambles, 19 February 2015
By winter munro bagger (north york moors)
Brought these to replace by Grivel F2, about time some might say especially as they suited my old more solid B3 boot, the G12 is aimed at the B2 boot , these fitted my Mammot Goliath's very well, quick easy fit to, no snow balling, did not need to refit all day, and stood up to the flat and steep equally well (grade i/ii/iii rock and ice), did not effect the comfort of my boots, would say if you intend any high grade winter route than grade 3 than that I would recommend a B3/C3 combination, but as a general crampon for big hills and easy scrambles worth every penny. highly recommend. if you only walk and think a 10 point would do, I would still consider these 12pointers they are no less comfortable and if you ever come across a bit of steep hard snow you will have the front points to stop you slipping

Excellent crampons, 24 February 2014
By Mark (Newcastle Upon Tyne)
These are my first pair of crampons as I have started to do a lot more winter walking. Tried them for the first time yesterday on Sharp Edge where there is quite a bit of snow. I was very impressed, they are really simple and easy to fit and they performed well on the snow/ice. The only downside would be the extra strap left over once you tighten them, there could maybe be another loop of some sort to wrap it up and avoid any trips. All in all very impressed.

G12 New Matic, 22 April 2013
By kyle7589 (edinburgh)
There are great crapons, I used these for the first time on the wee buachaille in glencoe and breezed up the hills. my one dissapointment was that despite there being solid ice/snow the whole way up and down I still managed to bend the tip of a spike... not ideal on first outing and make me wonder how sturdy they are

By Vito (South Wales)
They are GREAT!! Been to Tatra Mountains walking for hours and almost vertical climbing and each time they were so good that I decided to write this review . Comfy to walk on snow and snow/ice . Got stuck on icy almost vertical descent and they performed very good! Great stuff !!!

Grivel G12 NewMatic review, 25 December 2012
By Lurch (Bournemouth)
I bought these for use with my Mantas. Very good fit, very easy to adjust, bit into snow nicely enough, and good on the descent too. It's worth spending the money on good crampons.
