      Running confidently on ice!

      I absolutely LOVE these crampons. They have unbelievable traction, so much so that I’ve been trail running confidently on areas completely covered with ice (even on the downhills!). They are easy to take on and off. They are really tough and built to last. I’ve been recommending them to every runner I know!

      Hi Karine,

      Thank you for taking the time to review your FreeSteps6® Crampons!

      We hope you have a great rest of the winter season, with lots of time spent out on the trails - Be safe, go wild!

      Great Traction

      We have a lot if daytime melt and night time freezing here and it makes for very icy trail conditions. These things are a life saver. Running up and down hills are no problem. I wear a size 8 trail runner and ordered an extra small, they fit perfectly. Fresh Snow in near 0 degree temperatures are the only drawback as snow will pack up in them and form snowballs which can be nuisance.
