THIS COMPETITION IS CLOSED.
Jon Morgan, UKC gear tester, took a pair of Kahtoola Micro-spikes with him on a recon' of the Bob Graham Round in the Lakes last weekend - a fun reconnaissance with six mates spread over three days. Conditions as you know were white: from powder to crust, crud, slush, ice and névé. Jon will be reporting back about the performance of the Micro-spikes at UKC soon, but he did say that they were easy to put on and stayed on, and suffice to say, those with them had an easier time than those without.
Below is some information about the Micro-spikes and then your chance - three chances - to win a pair - retail is £44.99.
Just think – a pocket-sized traction system that makes any terrain, any time of year, possible.

Running, walking the dog, shoveling the drive way or what ever your adventure is Kahtoola's MICROspikes® Traction System cover it. We didn't think it was possible to create a piece of gear that was useable in so many different conditions and lightweight, too. There is not a glove box in our parking lot without a pair of our spikes in it. They're multipurpose, pocket-sized and don't require anything fancy to make them work. Just step in and go – adventure should always be this easy!
