From vertical ice routes in Switzerland to hard alpine mixed routes in the Canadian Rockies, the Black Diamond Cyborg crampon is our high-end ice and mixed climbing crampon. Built with a semi-rigid stainless steel construction, the Cyborg's versatile design can be converted from dual- to mono-point, and the hooded vertical frontpoints provide solid bite on everything from tenuous ice blobs to horizontal rock edges. The Cyborg's light and durable stainless steel design won't rust, resists snow balling and is free from toxic coatings that wear off in the mountains.

  • Distinctive stainless steel construction doesn't rust, is more durable, resists snow balling and saves weight
  • Low-profile micro-adjust heel lever offers precision fit
  • A djustable, hooded frontpoints and aggressive secondary points
  • Pro version accommodates boots with a toe welt
  • Clip version features flexible toe strap for boots without a toe welt
  • Includes dual-density ABS

Cyborg Crampon is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice crampon mono or dual point It takes about ten minutes for me to switch out the dual for mono points with warm hands after an initial struggle to make the anti-balling plate mods for both (loss of star). I really like the ability to use both styles without dropping another wad of cash for a single purpose crampon. They are solid and stable, bite into ice easily, take my futile attempts at mixed climbs in stride, and stand up to years of abuse. I've had my cyborgs for 6 years and am still waiting to need to replace the front points! The pro stays put on my very narrow Asolo boots- I have never had any sideways play, even though my boots leave about 3/8" on each side up front.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fully met my expectations to date I bought these for ice climbing after the season was over this year. Nonetheless, I've had the opportunity to use these on a moderately steep snow climb, and I found their performance, on ascent, fully met my expectations. However, on descent I had a significant snow balling problem. Spring snow in Colorado is a dynamic medium, but I was surprised given the integrated anti-balling plates. My companion's crampons did not suffer similarly. I will attempt to ameliorate the problem by applying a hydrophobic spray (like canola cooking oil) the next time I use them, and I will let you know (here) how it works out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Switching dual to mono is difficult I think this crampon climbs well and works great. The one beef I have is that (for me) it's super difficult to go from mono point to dual point configuration or vice versa. You also have to cut the plastic on the bail in order to do this. Not something you can do in the field. I really wanted this to be a crampon I could take on a trip, do some mixed climbing (mono point config), and then the next day do a big long water ice climb (dual point config), but I have found it too difficult to change configuration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toe bail adjustment difficult There are no instructions that I could find about how to move the toe bails, but they are difficult to get out. They have to be in a certain orientation to allow the compressed inner portion to go through the hole, then I had to push with a pair of pliers from the inside and pry with a screwdriver from the outside to get it free. I moved them all the way forward and they still won't go over my Koflach's toe welt. Had to order large toe bails, but that's a customer service matter about which I've contacted BD.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Toe Bails wouldn't fit my boots Just bought a new pair of Cyborg Pro's. Tried to fit them to my size 46 LaSportiva Trango Prime boots, and both the medium (which came on the crampons) and small toe bails included wouldn't fit. I switched them out with my old Bionic Pro toe bails, and that seems to have done the trick. Was wondering if anybody else has had the same problem/solution as me. Looking forward to getting on some ice with them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confidence inspiring. The Cyborg Crampon is the ultimate vertical climbing crampon. Excellent rigidity, solid connection to boot, and the ability to convert to a mono-point make this crampon worth the bucks. Want an all around crampon that works great for the pros or entry level climber? Go for the Cyborg. *All-in-all, excellent placements with amazing secure feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Crampons I have nothing negative to say about these crampons. They are really solid and well constructed with the duel point setup or mono with a really good antibot system. The heal lever and toe bail are standard and work great. I would recommend them and so far I've climbed solid WI4 with these and played around on some WI3 routes with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Confidence Inspiring I've been using these crampons for several months now climbing mostly WI3 in Alaska. They've been solid and easy to place with even light kicks giving a solid stick. They are difficult to transition them to mono-points. You have to cut a slot in the ABS, use different spacers and screws in order to make them mono or dual.
