A GENERAL Please read these instructions thoroughly before using this product and follow all the information contained within. Failure to observe these instructions can lead to a reduction in the protection this product provides. Please note: mountain climbing and indoor climbing are high-risk sports which can involve unforeseeable dangers. Your decisions and activities in this sport are your own responsibility. Please familiarise yourself with all associated risks before attempting climbing of any sort. SALEWA recommends that before attempting any climbing, you should obtain training and advice from suitably qualified persons (for example mountain guides or climbing teachers). In addition it is the user's responsibility to keep himself or herself informed of the correct techniques for carrying out safe rescue operations. The manufacturer bears no liability in the case of any misuse or abuse of this product. Also check for the appropriate certification of all other pieces of equipment. This product is made in conformity with PPE regulation (EU) 2016/425. You can view the EU Declaration of Conformity under The product meets category II for personal protective equipment (PPE) B INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE SALEWA Alpinist was developed as a crampon for alpine climbing and for glacier tours. It meets the requirements of Standard EN 893:2010. This product was made for use on snow, ice and rock and minimizes the the risk of slipping while progressing on those surfaces. The use of steel crampons is recommended on rocks as they are more robust than aluminium crampons and have a better grip on ice. Only use the product for the purpose for which it was constructed and never burden it beyond its limits. This product corresponds to the standard EN 893:2010. The correct use is shown in diagram B. : Danger to life : Risk of injury : Correct use WARNING: We have not shown all possible misuses. WARNING: Misuse of this tool can lead to severe injury, falls and even death. You must be aware of this and should only use this tool if you master its correct use. Components: A) Front frame B) Heel frame C) Hitch (Salewa Lock System) D) Clamp / basket E) Rocker lever attachment / basket F) Connection bridge with two attachment points G) Adjustment device H) Belt with an adjustment buckle I) Closure buckle J) Antibot plate Compatibility: Ensure that you only use products which are compatible with the crampon, this is in particular true for the boots and other footgear. Alpinist Combi: Only use this system with a crampon-compatible shoe (semi-automatic), with a corresponding heel on the reverse of the shoe which enables attachment. Alpinist Walk: This system can be used with all solid boots. Alpinist Pro: Select whether you wish to use the crampon with a clamp (D) or with the Salewa Lock System (C) (optional)– never use both simultaneously. Assemble the closure system as shown in the drawing. With a clamp (D): Use this system exclusively with a fully crampon-compatible shoe (fully automatic) with the corresponding heels for attachment at the back and the front. Fit the front clamp into the recesses on the front frame and use it to adjust the front spike length. With the Salewa Lock System (pat. pending) ( C) (optional): The "Salewa Lock System for Alpinist Pro", art. 0890 can be purchased for the "Pro" version as optional. The hook (C ) can be mounted onto the crampon, the plates need to be adapted to the compatible skiing boot. For mounting them to your boot, please refer to your specialist dealer who does this expertly. Use this system exclusively with shoe and skiing boot models compatible with the Salewa Lock System. You can view these under Compatible footgear is accordingly pre-equipped and must have a rigid sole. Pliable soles are not compatible with the Salewa Lock System. Size adaption (please refer to the graph): Adapt the crampon size using the adjustment device (G). Ensure that it clicks into place correctly. For small shoe sizes, remove the connection bridge (F), turn it 180° around its longitudinal axis and hook it back up. Use it to avoid it protruding beyond the heel frame (B). If available, use the adjustment wheel on rocker lever (E) for fine adjustment. Attachment of the crampon to the boot (see graph): Only use the right or left crampon for the corresponding foot. For this, thread the foot in the adapted crampon and close the respective closure system so that either the rocker lever attachment (e) clicks firmly into place or the baskets are placed without play. Thread the belt (h) correctly, its length can be adapted using the buckle, making it unnecessary to shorten it. Tighten and close it. Check the correct setting of the ties prior to each use. Check its fit by standing on it, rotating your foot when standing, kicking against it at the front and the rear and therefore burdening and unburdening the crampon several times over. ATTENTION: Poorly set or negligently attached crampons can loosen when the shoe is used. Therefore, check all the components and their fit prior to and during use. WARNING: When walking on snow, the snow may freeze quickly beneath the crampon and cause you to slip over; ensure that you avert this risk by being careful and checking regularly.

D LIFESPAN The lifespan of the product is dependent on a number of factors, such as the manner and frequency of use, UV exposure, moisture, ice, effects of weather, storage conditions, and dirt (sand, salt, etc.). Under extreme conditions the lifespan can be reduced to a single usageor even less, if the equipment has suffered damage (for example during transport) before ever being used. Please note: Products manufactured from synthetic fibres are subject to ageing even when not used. This ageing depends mainly on environmental conditions as well as the impact of UV light. Indications of the product's maximum lifespan: Never: Correct storage: up to 10 years since production Once or twice a year: up to 7 years Once a month: up to 5 years More times a month: up to 3 years Every week: up to 1 year Almost daily: up to 1/2 a year The potential lifespan of metal products is unlimited, since the effective lifespan depends on the previously mentioned factors. Salewa recommends replacing these products after maximum ten years. E CLEANING, STORAGE, TRANSPORT AND SERVICING See diagram E for guidelines on correct storage and care.
