Play Video about microspikes

Microspikes are small, lightweight, and flexible traction devices worn over the soles of your shoes or boots to provide extra grip and stability on snow and ice during trekking, hiking, or other outdoor activities. They are typically made of rubber or elastomer and feature small metal spikes or cleats on the bottom for added traction.

The use of microspikes in trekking can provide many benefits, including:

  1. Improved safety: Microspikes can significantly improve your stability and balance on slippery or icy terrain, reducing the risk of slips and falls.
  2. Increased comfort: With better traction, you can move more confidently and comfortably on icy or slippery surfaces
  3. Better performance: Microspikes can help you maintain a faster and more efficient pace, as you won’t have to slow down as much on tricky terrain.
  4. Versatility: Microspikes are easy to use and can be worn over trekking shoes. 

Overall, using microspikes during trekking can provide extra safety and comfort, especially when navigating icy or slippery terrain.
