Kahtoola Traction Systems
Kahtoola hail from Flagstaff, Arizona, in a high and cold place far from the desert. They wanted to make the outdoors more accessible, and so came up with a range of traction systems compatible with ordinary footwear, as opposed to stiff and heavy mountaineering boots. They have succeeded, and we're delighted to bring their best-selling products to Australia.
The original and ultimate traction system for regular shoes and boots, the legendary Kahtoola MICROSpikes feature a flexible silicone skeleton holding twelve aggressive spikes held in place by a welded chain. Walk easily across snow and ice, from high passes to frozen pavements, with your handy MICROspikes.
A series of ten tungsten carbide spikes set in a TPU traction plate wrap around shoes or trail runners enabling users to keep up their fitness regime in extreme winter conditions. Running or just walking the dog, these lightweight cousins to the original MICROspikes will ensure you stay upright every time.
The product that launched Kahtoola, the KTS are the ultimate flexible footwear crampons. No need to struggle with heavy mountaineering boots and step-in crampons. Just pull these over your normal hiking boots and you're away. Glaciers and high passes await.
