At the beginning of winter, runners ask themselves anew: Is it even possible to run in snow and ice and if so, which spikes or gear should I buy? In short, we recommend the Kahtoola EXOspikes for trail running and hiking, and for running in the park or on the road, the Kahtoola NANOspikes are best.
In the following video we present the whole thing to you in more detail and have really tested the spikes at -15 degrees, including a test run on a frozen lake.
Traction on ice and snow - Kahtoola, headquartered in Flagstaff (Arizona, USA), has been dedicated to this special field for over 20 years and has thus become the market leader in snow chains and spikes for pedestrians, runners and outdoor enthusiasts in North America. The brand was founded by Danny Giovale, who developed super-light, reliable and easily stowable crampons - initially only for his own use.
At Sporthunger, we particularly like working with small companies that are mostly privately owned and specialize in a few products and do them extremely well. Companies like Kahtoola.
A little tip at the end: if you want to prevent snow or stones from getting into your shoes, you should take a look at the INSTA™gaiter running gaiters from Kahtoola.
