If you are looking for high quality, high performance ice grips for winter walking, adventuring, or just clearing snow from the front of the house - Kahtoola Microspikes have always delivered unrivalled traction. Now with the re-engineered Microspikes it just got better! Hike, Trek, Explore!

Winner of Backpacker Magazine’s Hall of Fame Award and Editors’ Choice Gold Award (2018) the new Microspikes feature a lower profile elastomer harness, patent pending eyelet reinforcements and integrated toe bale. They also include welded chains, and continue to boast complete stainless steel construction for all metal components. Along with an elastomer harness with 50% less bulk, all of these improvements have resulted in a 13% total weight reduction over the previous Microspike Quad version.

Whether you are trekking on icy winter trails, exploring winter woodland tracks, dog walking, or just popping to the shops and back , the new Kahtoola Microspike should be your first choice ice grip. Although best worn on Boots and Activity Shoes, they're easy to use with almost any type of footwear and come with a 2 year manufacturers warranty.

    Kahtoola Microspikes

    These are just great, fine to nip to the shops, seconds to take on and off. Hill walking, even winter munros the usual problem is iced up paths and these are just as effective as crampons for that. Carry both and axe but really only use the crampons for the serious stuff further up. Take no space/weigh next to nothing. Everyone should have a pair!!

    Thanks for your comprehensive review Robert

    They’re just so super!

    I’ve been out on the hills again last weekend and needed the Microspikes once again. They’re just so super! As are the diamond studded ones.
    I recommend your site to many friends! Have a super weekend
