With 1 cm-long spikes, the Light model povides perfect grip on snowy, frozen or wet ground, or over steeper terrain. This means the Light model is not only suited to classic winter hiking and trail running but also to more ambitious uses such as traversing snow fields or compact ice sections.

The smaller gauge chain and thin elastomer provide a secure fit, especially on lightweight hiking or running shoes. The flexible heel spikes enable natural roll-over performance.
