Aloha! Hillsound is happy to announce that we now have a distributor in Hawaii. This may seem an odd place to supply our traction devices that are primarily designed for use in ice and snow, but they also work effectively on muddy slopes. Locals use the traction devices to help them up slick mountain sides when the mud makes it hard to gain traction on the wet surface. For the time being the FreeSteps6 will be the only model available on the islands. If you are a local and interested in purchasing a pair, please email Justin at justincruz@yahoo.com.
