Kahtoola's go-to traction device that's built for maximum versatility. Designed for winter running or hiking on a variety of surfaces, EXOspikes™ traction is at home on icy roads, snow-packed trails, and everything in between. 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.
