With the Axion crampon, the days of risky mounting manoeuvres in tough terrain are over. Because the Axion is fastened to the binding right at the start of the tour, it is ready for action at all times. In severe snow conditions before a steep slope or an awkward traverse, it can be activated easily with the ski pole, thus offering secure support. Once it is no longer needed, it is just as easy to deactivate. There is no need for the Axion to disappear into the rucksack before the skins come off. The Axion is the only crampon which is so convenient to use and for that very reason it makes a substantial contribution to safety.
