Quick and easy instant traction.

Instead of pulling the ol' banana peel slip and eating it on icy trails, strap on the Kahtoola MICROspikes Traction System for instant footing and more graceful movement. Burly stainless steel cleats are connected by flex chains and an elastomer harness for a snug and secure fit and high performance traction.

With a new lower profile harness, eyelet reinforcements, and an integrated toe bale, these MICROspikes are the lightest and lowest profile version yet. A heel tab makes the system a breeze to get on or off, and a sturdy front bar holds it in place up front. Whether you're walking the dog, fishing on a frozen river, or doing that high-altitude hike to an icy peak, the MICROspikes help you keep your footing and prevent your butt from hitting the ground. And now the MICROspikes come with a tote sack so you have somewhere to store them when you get to lower elevations.

  • Stainless steel construction
  • Welded chains
  • Elastomer harness
  • Integrated toe bale
  • Eyelet reinforcements
  • Tote sack included

Here's what others have to say...

I wear 9.5 shoes for trail running. What size do I need to buy ? I hear one size smaller is better because it extends a lot.


Going Winter Trail Running? Get This!

Seriously! These are the primary spikes you need if you are ever going on a winter trail run. The ability to grip into the snow that you are running on is critical. Minimal, if any slippage, will occur while you are out enjoying the outdoors!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Microspikes may be a far from crampons for technical adventures but they're also night and day different from most of the other "casual" traction systems out there and I can't rave about them enough. Backcountry suggested a pair after I took a nasty fall on an icy PNW trail and I've had them out many times since practically jogging along in light snow and ice when others were flailing around to keep their footing. The spikes aren't that deep but with so many contact points, they create a great grip even on solid surfaces. Totally worth it.
