Supergrip Capstrap 2.0
The Burton Gettagrip Capstrap is one of the best toe straps on the market, with a super grippy interior that holds onto your boot in freezing temperatures, and a design that hugs the contours of most boots.
Whammy Bar Climbing Wire:
A single fatty climbing wire is built into the baseplate with a side arm lever for easy position changes. Easily switch between stowed, low (12°), and high (18°) and back again.
Snap Ramps and Side-Lock Tesla Touring Brackets:
T1 System bindings slide sideways into the offset touring bracket and are locked into place with our snap ramp, negating the need for pins and cables. Integrated Ibex crampon mounting claws on touring brackets make for quick and easy installation and removal.
Slide them on and snap the ramp down, or snap the ramp up and slide them off, regardless of whether you're putting them on or taking them off, it'll be super easy and quick. When used with Spark Tesla system bindings you'll be able to conveniently access puck screws with the bindings in place for precise stance adjustment. Pucks sold separately.
T1 Heel Rest:
The T1 Heel Rest catches the climbing wire in the 12° and 18° positions and is specifically designed to hold the T1 step locker in place.
