      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Grivel Parts

Recommended Posts

I have a pair of Grivel Air Techs with the "new matic" binding (metal front, plastic back). I'm hoping to replace the metal back with the plastic (like their "New Classic" bindings) so I can more easily wear them on regular boots without digging into my heels but I can't figure out where to find the part. Any ideas?

Yeah, Liberty Mtn is the NA distributer. I believe that's your best bet but I have a feeling that they don't stock such parts and would have to get them from Italy. Let us know what you find!

I think you got your front-back description crossed?

 

Anyway, to add the "universal" heel will be problematic. The plastic cuff is riveted directly to the steel crampon heel. I doubt that the part you're looking for is even available for new purchase. You can try Liberty or you can also try The Mountaineer in Keene NY. They have been longstanding Grivel distributors and keep a very well stocked parts bin.

 

Other option is to buy a full replacement heel. That way you can swap between crampon styles without buying a full set of new 'pons.
