The Kahtoola KTS Steel crampon is one of our most popular crampons and rightly so:you don't need to go and buy a stiff winter boot,you don't need to wear a stiff, heavy boot,you don't need to go and buy a boot specific crampon,you don't need to carry a bulky, heavy crampon,to go out walking and hiking in the winter or travel through mountainous regions.Climbers who need to get across short glacier sections to the foot of harder rock routes (e.g. Chamonix Aiguilles, Bugaboos) can benefit from the weight savings of a superlight crampon and lighter weight approach footwear by using a Kahtoola KTS Steel crampon.KTS crampons fit and work with most footwear from running shoes through approach shoes and walking boots and on to ski and snowboard boots. This is all possible due to the easy to use adjustable click buckled straps and the patented flexible LeafSpring® extender bar.The KTS Steel uses robust chromoly steel that will cope with rocky terrain and choppy ice without wearing the points down. It folds down into a compact bundle to save space in your pack when they're not in use. If you want to clip your crampons to your harness for quick access or just want to save the kit in your pack from damage check out the Kahtoola Tote Sack. Whilst the Kahtoola Snow Release Skins will reduce the chance of your KTS steels from Balling up with snow and causing unexpected slips and slides.Sizing: S/M = UK 3–8, M/L = UK 8–13Weight: 662gMaterial: Chromoly SteelExtender Bar: patented flexible LeafSpring®
Kahtoola's go-to traction device that’s ready for anything. Designed for running or hiking adventures on a variety of surfaces, EXOspikes™ are at home on ice and snow as well as on dry, rocky ground. Twelve ultra-durable tungsten carbide spikes underfoot provide an impressive amount of grip when you need it, and stand up to rocks and other abrasive trail features when you don’t. All in a very lightweight package that can be easily stowed away in a backpack.
Kahtoola Insta Gaiters Low are super light, packable and extremely breathable. Unlike many such gaiters they feature a zip so can be put on or removed without taking your shoes off. In-fact you can partially unzip them and they will stay in place for venting on dry sections or you can remove and pack them super small in the included tote sack to put in a pocket for rapid deployment when it all gets minging later on.
The Kahtoola MICROspikes are ideal for walking, hiking and running on snow-packed paths and trails or working on steep mud and grass. This pocket-sized traction system attaches easily to running, approach and everyday shoes as well as boots.
Although Kahtoola Nanospikes are aimed at runners (being light, low profile and durable), they are great for walkers who like getting out in winter conditions. This ultralight, winter traction device can be attached to your trainers, shoes or boots in seconds and makes winter training and walking possible on iced pavements, roads and gently angled offroad paths. A handy carrying bag is included, to pack away or carry your NanoSpikes.
