Reliable and versatile chain-free crampons / ice cleats that performs exceptionally well on icy sidewalks in an urban environment as well as slippery trails when winter jogging or dog walking. The sleek design is not only appealing but also gives you the option to use a variety of footwear; casual shoes, trail runners, hiking shoes (flexible soles), hiking boots (rigid soles) and insulated boots. These less aggressive crampons are fitted with 18 low profile, high impact, stainless steel spikes and flexible spike plates which gives you a good grip on icy surfaces, freedom of movement and high level of comfort. The riveted attachment points are there for long lasting performance and the velcro strap for added security so you can feel confident when heading out - knowing the crampons will stay secure underfoot. They come with a carry bag so you can keep them ready in your bag, backpack or car and bring them out as needed.

Not for all Surfaces

I was just on the site to order up another pair and read some reviews out of curiosity. I think the issues some people are having with these spikes 'narrow' 'broken spikes' 'quickly worn out' is because in my experience these spikes are only suitable for icy snowy trail I have a few different pairs each for different surfaces. In my opinion these are fabulous spikes especially for that sticky snow that clumps but never on rocks or pavement. The only reason I have to buy another pair is mine got stolen out of my truck.

Hey Lesley, thanks for your awesome review on the FlexSteps! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and expertise. Happy trails!

Excellent Product!

I purchased these in winter of 2020/2021 for some light winter hiking after my initial chain style ice-cleats broke in just a few wears (from another brand, not Hillsound!). These are still in excellent shape, and they've had very good use. I remember when I was shopping around for ice-cleats, these were about $20 more than most of the ice cleats in similar range, but now I know that extra $20 was well worth it! The size guide is also very helpful. Would recommend to anyone!

Hi Kathryn, thanks so much for the excellent review! We are so glad to hear you are happy with the quality of our crampons and that the size guide has been very helpful! Happy trails!

Worked great

I rented a pair when I went on a hike in icy conditions. They gave me a good grip and they were comfortable for the hike (2-3 hrs). So I decided to get my own pair for the next time I encounter those conditions.

Hi Luc, thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We are glad to hear that you liked the FlexSteps so much you had to get yourself a pair. Happy trails!

Flex step crampons

Very reliable for icy sidewalks, small hills, never come unattached! Like them and their light!

Hi Richard, thanks for the great review! We are happy to hear you find the FlexSteps very reliable on icy sidewalks and on your commutes!

I purchased a pair December 2022 at a retail store. Wore them twice in snow and ice and cleats fell out. I returned them to store for warranty service. A claim had to be filed with Hillsound before a replacement could be offered. Two weeks without them! What if I needed them for work! A replacement was provided. The second pair have now lost cleats. I will return for refund. I am disappointed because it’s a great lightweight product and I support Canadian.

Hi Bev, I am sorry to hear about your experience with the FlexSteps. Please feel free to reach out to us at Service@hillsound.ca if you need any assistance. We stand behind our product and are able to offer you another warranty replacement directly.
