Editors' Chioce GOLD Award - Backpacker Magazine 2012 Gear Guide
"Kahtoola MicroSpikes...the perfect choice when full crampons are overkill and rubber tread won't cut it." - Backpacker Magazine 2008 Gear Guide
Kahtoola MICROspikes Ice Cleats. Lighter and tougher, the new MICROspikes deliver unrivaled traction on icy winter trails. MICROspikes traction is tough enough to handle any adventure with stainless steel spikes and welded chains. MICROspikes now feature an integrated toe bale and reinforced eyelets allowing for a 50% lower profile elastomer harness.
The MICROspikes feature a lower profile elastomer harness, thanks to Kahtoola's Patent Pending eyelet reinforcements and integrated toe bale. They also now include welded chains, and continue to boast complete stainless steel construction for all metal components. All of these improvements have resulted in an elastomer harness with a 50% lower profile, and a 13% total weight reduction over the previous MICROspikes.
A Tote Sack is included with each pair of MICROspikes.
