They come in 3 sizes. Medium 36 - 41. Large 40 - 45. XLarge 43 upward.
Spare spikes come in a complete pack of 7 for £2.99. I have no idea why the heel spikes are green and the foot are red. They both look exactly the same.
They are made by a Swedish company called SpringyArd, so i suppose they should know a thing or two about ice and snow.
They are graded as tough and intended for running or hiking. The rubber is supple yet very strong and there is very little Give when they are fitted to a shoe or boot.
Obviously they have there limitations but at the weight of 165 gr per pair they are ideal to carry in the rucksack for those just in case times.
They also roll up into a nice compact size as you can see below.
They are very similar in all respects to the Petzl Spiky plus but are a little cheaper. I will be taking these along with me this winter that’s for sure.
