Spikes & Chains
The MICROspikes® feature 12 spikes per foot, with 8 spikes at the forefoot and 4 spikes at the heel. Each spike is 3/4″ long, and the spikes are made from heat-treated stainless steel for excellent durability and corrosion resistance. The independent layout of the spikes helps prevent snow from balling up. Kahtoola’s spikes are created to provide great traction across slippery surfaces. Chains and links are also made from stainless steel, and the chains are welded, further increasing their durability.
With extreme durability as their goal, Kahtoola has developed patent-pending reinforced eyelet technology that allows their elastomer bands to be lighter and stronger than ever. The elastomer band’s main body is comprised of stretchy Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) for a quick and secure fit on a variety of footwear, while the durable Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) eyelet inserts prevent tearing and improve longevity. Kahtoola boot chains can fit on almost every shoe.
MICROspikes® pack down to roughly 5 x 3 x 2 inches in their included tote sack, and weigh between 11 and 14 ounces per pair. These boot chains easily fit into a pocket or pack, making them convenient to take on any Canadian winter adventure. A Tote Sack is now included with each pair of MICROspikes! VIDEO
