The Kahtoola KTS Steel uses the innovative Kahtoola® Traction System (KTS) which fits over all types of flexible footwear. The steel version weigh only 662g and enable lighter flexible boots to be used where heavy mountain boots might normally be needed. For winter walking and hiking, mountain and glacier travel.

The Kahtoola KTS Steel crampon is one of our most popular crampons and rightly so:

  • you don't need to go and buy a stiff winter boot,
  • you don't need to wear a stiff, heavy boot,
  • you don't need to go and buy a boot specific crampon,
  • you don't need to carry a bulky, heavy crampon,

to go out walking and hiking in the winter or travel through mountainous regions.

Climbers who need to get across short glacier sections to the foot of harder rock routes (e.g. Chamonix Aiguilles, Bugaboos) can benefit from the weight savings of a superlight crampon and lighter weight approach footwear by using a Kahtoola KTS Steel crampon.

KTS crampons fit and work with most footwear from running shoes through approach shoes and walking boots and on to ski and snowboard boots. This is all possible due to the easy to use adjustable click buckled straps and the patented flexible LeafSpring® extender bar.

The KTS Steel uses robust chromoly steel that will cope with rocky terrain and choppy ice without wearing the points down. It folds down into a compact bundle to save space in your pack when they're not in use. 

If you want to clip your crampons to your harness for quick access or just want to save the kit in your pack from damage check out the Kahtoola Tote Sack. Whilst the Kahtoola Snow Release Skins will reduce the chance of your KTS steels from Balling up with snow and causing unexpected slips and slides.

  • Sizing: S/M = UK 3–8, M/L = UK 8–13
  • Weight: 662g
  • Material: Chromoly Steel
  • Extender Bar: patented flexible LeafSpring®
