The Ultra 65 is a proven 100% race ski with super edge grip for consistent carving.

With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!

The Super Grip is quite different from normal crampons, including our own crampons. The Super Grip has a much larger surface contact area, but is not as deep. It is also “universal” in that it will work with almost any bindings, and any skis up to 100mm wide. The Super Grip crampon has many uses...
