I’ve got some of the Grivel Airtech Lights which I think are the sort of thing you mean, I think they’re absolutely great. I thought they’d be good for walking on glacier ice and the like but I’ve found you can climb a short mixed section and they’re just fine. Anything more and I’d use the standard airtechs I also have.
I’m not entirely sure I’d recommend them though, not without caveats at least. The two biggest being, first, I’ve a choice, I can take out standard crampons if I want and second, on sustained mixed sections day in day out I think you’d trash them pretty quick. I reckon something the Airtech Lights would last a couple of weeks in Scotland for example.
