CAMP Race 290 was awarded as “Crampon of the Year” by Ski-alper magazine
The Italian Ski-alper magazine has no doubt: superlight CAMP Race 290 is the best competitive ski mountaineering crampon on the market! The Race 290 was awarded as “Crampon of the Year” by an authoritative test team; Ski-alper Test 2013-Buyer's guide says that it's an amazing piece of gear, absolutely perfect for competitions: “The Race 290 is extremely light, compact and fast to attach. It allows to run without difficult and has no rival”.
The aluminum (Ergal) Race 290 features a patented heel that is designed for rapid attachment with the fastest A/T boots models typically made for Dynafit® or similar style lightweight backcountry bindings. The innovative Dyneema® linking straps reduce weight even further and allow the crampons to be folded onto themselves for packability. Solid linking bars are also included for a more rigid fit if desired. Eventually, the Race 290 features different colors for the left and right for fast and easy identification.
C.A.M.P. is proud and happy for this important award: “Crampon of the Year” prize confirms soundness of our lightweight philosophy. Hyperlight mountain gear has the serious potential to increase both performance and safety: for this reason, all Ski-alper testers wore CAMP Speed helmet during their work, appreciating its surprising lightness and exceptional ventilation when moving fast.
