"Ice Rock decided to take an old approach to a new point of view. We find the COUGAR is a very versatile, rigid, light, and extremely durable crampon worth the Award."
Marianne van der Steen, Professional Ice Climber
Ti and CFRP have low adhesion rate, especially in small contact areas. In order to achieve the necessary durability benchmark (EN-893), a unique engineering solution was found: titanium teeth are integrated into the platform at the layering stage in one technological cycle. Hybrid composite (carbon+flax) reduces weight & has a positive environmental effect of flax.
