      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Winter Trail Runners: Microspikes

Recommended Posts

Cool! Those look beefy compared to the Yaktrax--I read mixed reviews about their durablility. I ordered a set of the Yaktrax but don't know if they're going to fit the bill, so maybe these microspike are a better alternative. Thanks for the heads up.

 

 

I also got a pair of the Atlas Run snowshoes so I can try snow running for the first time this year. I'm ready for winter now, baby. Bring it! :)

Yeah, some reviews of the Yaktraks indicated they break pretty easily. The Yaktaks are lighter and cheaper, though. We'll see about these. Unlike the Yaktraks, the bottom is all metal, so it seems like they should last a bit longer.

 

I saw a guy running down a really ice trail on Si with them, so I decided to pick up a pair.

 

I've got a pair of Tubbs 10K racing snowshoes. Nice and light, but I used them for everything and now they're blowing out pretty badly. I just ordered a pair of MSR Lightnings for backcountry stuff. I might try repairing the 10Ks and keep them for trail use.

Sorry, honey. Subscription only.

 

Plus you have to verify that you're over 55.

 

Hey, I'm going out to try my new Microspikes now.

I just fell on my ass this morning running on Der Tigerhorn. Maybe I need to pick up a pair.
