Grivel - G20
I have to admit, I do think that G20s are the coolest looking crampons on the market but aesthetics aside, they're also some of the best in the field for their specific use.
Rigid, monopoints are the go-to crampon for technical mixed and ice climbing and with the G20s tipping the scales at a punitive 794g they are ridiculously light and sit very low, meaning a good sensitivity underfoot.
Anti-balling plates are provided for the heel section but not the front, but most reviews state there aren't any real problems with snow build up there and they're very much a hard climbing crampon.

It is dangerous and completely negligent of the manufacturers NOT to produce a front anti-ball plate. ALL cake-cutter style crampons will ball up in wet snow, the idea that just because this is a technical ice crampon, it is not needed is rubbish. You still have to get to and from the climb, balling up then can be lethal.
The lightest crampons you can get but not at all flimsy, I am excited to get these monopoints into some ice and cracks as soon as possible. Great service as ever, spent a while trying alternatives, discussing objectives and uses and then finding the best fit for the boots and the routes.
