Hi Laurelle, The new Vasak crampon is made of tougher steel than the original and has therefore been made thinner and lighter. The anti-balling plates seem to have had an over haul as well which we only assume will make them more effective than the older models. Finally, the crampons have an increased adjust-ability meaning that they should fit a greater variety of mountaneering boots. Another consequence of the overhaul, and a feature that we really like, is that many of the crampons in Petzl's range now have interchangeable front and heel sections, for example you can now attach the heel of the Vasak to the front of a dartwin. Hope that helps, Dave
