Made of ultra high-strength stainless steel for durability and weight reduction, the new Trail Crampon ULTRA brings the Trail Crampon's legacy of superb traction performance to those needing to travel faster and lighter. 18 spikes offer aggressive traction on any icy surface and distributes pressure to withstand wear. Welded chains withstand repeated torque, foot strikes and abuse on any ice and snow. Double-sided chains keep a tight grip on shoes to prevent shifting of traction device. Larger heel plate gives secure traction and ultra stability for descents and trail-running.  Note: The Trail Crampon Ultra will be available in select stores from mid-September 2013.

SAFETY INSPECTION:

Before each use, check over the product to ensure there is no damage, such as chains splitting open or tears in the rubber. If damage is found, discontinue use to prevent further damage and potential injury. Please return the product to your local Hillsound retailer. Test product before each use for proper fit. Check positioning of front & rear spikes on the outer sole of your footwear. All spikes must fit within the outer edge of your footwear when fitted properly.

FASTENING & REMOVING:

Always put on and remove Hillsound Trail Crampon while seated. To fasten the Trail Crampon place toes into the front section of the crampon and adjust so the toe guide wire is sitting in front of the shoe not on top or underneath the shoe. The spikes must sit untangled and position well within the outer edge of your footwear underneath the ball of the foot. Pull the rubber back-tab toward the heel and cover your footwear with rubber evenly positioned around the sides of your shoe.

Pass the velcro strap under and over the opposite side of the rubber to prevent slippage of the crampon. Adjust the chains and base plate appropriately so that the base plates are fitting evenly and squarely underfoot. Place one foot at a time to ensure balance and start walking on flat surface to test that it is fitting well. If the chains or rubber are loose, you may need to consider a smaller size for a tighter fit. All shoe makes and brands are different, so the Hillsound sizing chart should be used only as a guide. To remove the product, slide the back-tab off of the heel of the shoe, and slip the front of the foot out of the front section of the crampon.

PROPER APPLICATION:

Hillsound Trail Crampon are designed for recreational activities such as trail running, winter hiking, and are not made for technical climbing. These are not a mountaineering crampon. Avoid using the Hillsound Trail Crampon on stairs, rocks or river crossings. Only use Trail Crampon in winter snow and ice conditions. Use the Trail Crampon with regular outdoor footwear, such as: runners, hiking boots, and insulated boots.

SAFETY TRANSPORTATION:

Transport crampons using a sturdy bag so as to protect the spikes from damaging personal belongings. Always position the spikes away from the body when transporting them.

CASE AND MAINTENANCE:

After each use crampons must be thoroughly cleaned, dried and stored in a cool dry place. The chains are stainless steel and so will not rust, however the carbon steel base plate can. To prevent rust they can be oiled after use and drying.

Please note that where sizes overlap, this is to indicate that discretion is needed to determine the correct size. For the gaiters, the correct size can be dependent upon the individual's calf size. For the traction devices, a correct fit is largely dependent on what type of shoe the individual will be wearing with the product. For all Hillsound products, we recommend you try the gaiters or crampons on in-store with the shoes you plan to wear them with to ensure you get the right fit.

Very Solid product

Being as this is my first crampon I have nothing to compare to. However, this product has never failed me. I recently ran a 32 miler through the snowdrifts, ice, and even some mud and these bad boys didn't disappoint. My only complaint would be that the toe bar tends to slip back from the front of my toe and ride more on the top of my shoe's toe box. This causes the underside chains to slop around a bit. I think a tighter crampon would likely remedy this problem. Other than that, these are great. I was running pretty well in them and did not notice any issues. Extremely light weight so I barely noticed they were there.

Took my new Trail Crampon Ultra's for a test today. The trail was covered with ice and on top of that, it rained today. The crampons were amazing! I run up and down the steepest hills I could find, with no problem. Great product.   *Please note the reviewer received the TC Ultra as part of a company promotion.*
