Now, the burning question: Why didn’t Dynafit make a full length crampon that fits the Hoji boot toe the same way as the Tech Crampon? They could of done it. We could probably mod the Tech Crampon in three hours to be full length. Our guess at the answer: Tech Crampon is patented, someone did not want to license the patent to Dynafit, or perhaps someone at Dynafit figured they had a better idea in the Cramp-In. I’d vehemently argue against that. The Tech Crampon fits the Hoji like Jimi Hendrix wore his headband. Google it up. Dynafit should have used the concept.
