When a traction device does require that you walk unnaturally, you tend to forget yourself, especially in an emergency, and take a natural step. When you do, you risk slipping and injuring yourself. With Yaktrax Pro, you don't have to learn any new skills. You're safer because you walk the same way you do on dry pavement.
That's because Yaktrax Pro shares the same exclusive, proven spikeless SKIDLOCK ice traction system originally introduced with the Yaktrax Walk. The shaped hand-wound stainless steel coils give your footwear hundreds of biting edges that grip the ice for 360° traction.
Note: You get the same amazing traction using both the Yaktrax Walk and Yaktrax Pro. The Pro is simply more durable and stays on your footwear better.
You should not drive while wearing Yaktrax. The straps can catch on pedals.
I do not recommend Yaktrax if you live or work in a city because Yaktrax are slippery on smooth surfaces that include
If you are unable or unwilling to remove them before going indoors or driving, or you live or work in a city, consider Winter Walking LOW-PRO® Ice Cleats or Winter Walking Ice Beast Low-Pro Ice Cleats because you can wear these ice cleats indoors, on most floors, and while driving. Furthermore, LOW-PRO and ICE BEAST LOW-PRO also gives you better traction on the city hazards mentioned above.
Now having said all that, on the average, you can expect two seasons. When you consider the cost per use it's very low-cost insurance compared to the cost of an injury.
No. SPARE SPIKE Ice Cleats are a low cost alternative for Yaktrax that will work in regular snow and slush.
While people do successfully use Yaktrax Pro for Running, I do not recommend it. Here's why.
To be clear, I don't recommend running on ice with any ice cleats. However, if you must, choose ice cleats with well-positioned 2mm tungsten carbide studs.
Also, check for studs located at the base of your heel and near the front. These are the areas where you're landing and pushing off, having the fewest or, in most cases, no studs, and most likely to lose traction.
It depends where, how often, and how long you're hiking. Yaktrax are not designed to be used off-road.
It depends. You must remove Yaktrax before you go indoors if the floor is smooth because the steel coils are extremely slippery on those surfaces. Examples include the supermarket, drug store, and post office. If it's not easy for you to take Yaktrax off and put them back on you have a problem.
You should remove Yaktrax before you drive because the straps can impede movement between the pedals.
Note: Yaktrax Walk is easier to put on and take off than the Yaktrax Pro because the straps aren't as strong.
If you live in the city, you must be careful where you step because Yaktrax can be extremely slippery on utility covers, sewer grates, floors in train stations, smooth bricks, tile floors, and on entry steps on mass transit.
If you have to negotiate steeper inclines, or you live where temperatures drop to extremely low temperatures, you want a more aggressive traction device.
