Recent Traction Reviews

Yaktrax Pro

rated 1 of 5 stars They are awful and i was more scared with them on walking on ice and snow, then with them off. They are made durable, and they are worth the price, however walking in a nonice or nonsnow sidewalk and street can do damage to your walking,  and it is highly not recommended.     Full review

Black Diamond Serac Strap

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 12-point stainless steel crampon that does the job. I bought these a couple of years ago and I've used them only in snow ranging from powder to crust with my flexible hunting boots, but never on solid ice.After some mixed rocky trail hike, a fellow hiker advised me to buy a knife sharpening stone to sharpen the edges from time to time. I came to no result since stainless steel is VERY HARD to sharpen. Not that I needed any sharpening because till this day they are as sharp as they were when I first… Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 5 of 5 stars No better traction device made, short of full crampons. This is my fourth winter season with the same Microspikes and they are now approaching 2,000 miles of trail running. I get some great stares from folks slipping and sliding along the trails as I run by at full tilt :) I've never had them come off. They easily pull on and off. The only maintenance I do is touch them up with a file about twice each winter. In addition to trail running they go in the pack for early season hiking when there is… Full review

Kahtoola MICROspikes

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good device in between a Yaktrak and mountaineering crampon. I used a pair of the very inexpensive YakTrax exactly one time and decided to find something more substantial after the YakTrax kept getting dislodged from my boots while hiking relatively tame trails. In my search for a better traction device, but not a full-on crampon, I found the Kahtoola Microspikes. I've used a set of Microspikes now for around three years. Lots of rough, steep, rocky, icy, and snowy off-trail stuff here in the foothills… Full review

Petzl Leopard FL

rated 5 of 5 stars The Petzl Leopard FL is an aluminum crampon featuring a Dyneema cord adjustment system. The crampon is so light you won't hate yourself for carrying them when you didn't need them. They are so easy to use and so effective you'll be glad you have them when you do need them. Specifications: All aluminum construction optimized for snow travel Ten points (with dual front points) assure traction on icy terrain Very lightweight 360 gm/12 ounces for pair CORD-TECH optimizes volume when packed in their… Full review

Korkers Ice Cleats Extreme

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect for well packed or travelled snowy trails. I have been using these Korkers (or a version of them) for several years now. They are perfect for my needs. Which are: Long-lasting, I use them daily taking clients (and putting them in them) on a packed icy canyon trails. They're easy to put on and off and come in different sizes. The cleats can be easily replaced if they become dull or if you lose some on a cat walk. Can be left in a pack without worrying about other gear Darwin says you don't… Full review

Yaktrax Pro

rated 1 of 5 stars Good idea, but only work under certain conditions. I bought a pair for simple winter trail walking. No pack..nothing crazy and these do not function well. The bottoms are grippy as expected and if you are walking on ice or frozen compacted ice like snow, they will function. Anything even sort of soft or add 1 inch of snow and the movement of the snow under foot builds up and acts like a bulldozer and pushes the rubber webbing off to the side, up over your toe or moves the whole thing out of its… Full review

Black Diamond Sabretooth Pro

rated 4 of 5 stars Not a slip-on crampon. Once I figured out how to properly mount these on my boots they work great. Size up the crampons to your boot, lock it in. Getting on and strapping in can be a pain. I've used them a dozen times, most recently a hike up Mt. Katahdin. Once I figured how to strap them in properly they stayed tight, and using the fine adjustment helps. I use them on Koflach Arctis Expe boots and Scarpa Jorasses Pro GTX boots.  Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon

rated 5 of 5 stars Sharp, lightweight spikes make me feel secure while running on the icy roads in the winter in Colorado! I couldn't ask for better spikes to use on icy terrain.  I live in Colorado and run 3 mornings a week when the roads are nice and frozen over.  I have NO fear of slipping and falling when wearing these.  Best part is, I can't even feel that I'm wearing them!
