    Crampons v's Crampon Ultimate

    For the past few months I've been unclipped after about 7 years of being locked down. Did a enduro a couple of weeks ago and for some reason at the last moment I clipped back in. Now I'm back on the platform program, convinced that for the type of riding platforms are the way to go.

    So lets hear about it, undoubtedly these pedals are up there with the best available . On paper its pretty clear what the differences are but I'd like to hear from those who have had time on them both. Is one better than the other, or do they both offer a unique quality that the other is missing? What's the maintenance like? Let it all out!

    Nice, like the second pic it displays the profile differences nicely. Surely you guys have had some time on both set's, which set do you prefer?

    I haven't spent much time on the Crampons, but my friend has them and I've goofed around on his Endorphin. I prefer the body shape my Ultimates and the feel that gives them. Plus they don't tend to squeak as much with the spindle hidden inside the body. If you're not in urgent need of pedals, I'd definitely wait a few weeks for the Ultimates. They really are a great pedal.

    Hold out for the Ultimates. Recently purchased the originals as the Ultimates were sold out, good pedals but the spindle/shoe squeak drove me nuts. Foot placement was an issue for me as well. The. Newer design should eliminate these issues. Not to steer you away from Canfield but I just put on some Straitline Amps and really like them.
