Brit shows Ukrainians how NOT to slip on THEIR ICE an ICEGRIPPER CUSTOMER STORY

Ukraine has a temperate continental climate with warm summers and cold, snowy winters. In Kiev, the Capital, on average, snow falls for 51 days with typical winter temperatures in December, January and February rarely exceeding -1C, with an average low-temperature of -5.8°C

So you'd think they would be pretty well sorted for winter traction products? That doesn't appear to be the case, though and it's taking a Brit to show them how NOT TO SLIP on THEIR ICE!Here's Karl's ICEGRIPPER CUSTOMER STORY

Here's evidence from the field...(Kiev), of a great product in action. Heavy and continuing snowfall today. I'm out enjoying it knowing I'm foot steady 😃

People keep noticing my icegrippers. I tell them where I sourced them from. There's a big potential market out here, I reckon. They seem not much used here. Crazy as people slip all the time...same from what I've observed in Kyrgyzstan where the pavements are lethal. 

Best, Karl"

It’s with sadness that within 3 years of Karl sending us this feedback, Russia invaded Ukraine. ICEGRIPPER are proud that in the run up to these events we supplied ice grips to some of the Western Allied Forces (unfortunately we can’t be any more specific, as we had to sign a NDA/Secrecy Document).
