Lightweight and packable, the snowline Chainsen Light traction system helps you grip icy winter trails. Their simple on-and-off design makes it easy to stay prepared for slippery weather.
Whether you've got a penchant for falling on ice or love trail running in alpine conditions come winter, the Snowline Light Chainsen Crampon offers unimpeded versatility and traction. The Light Chainsen is 40% lighter than the Pro Chainsen, which bolsters its adaptability. The stainless steel is rust-resistant and strong, while the elastomer is highly durable for longevity. The sizing is easy to adjust and wear without the need for an additional ring or loop.
Lightweight version of the tried and true Chainsen design. Thinner elastomer and a thinner gauge on the chains and spikes make these extremely light and packable without sacrificing any grip on slippery surfaces. Available in 3 sizes from M-XL.
