Default YakTrax Pro (solid footing on ice)

I haven't tried them out personally, but a friend is raving about them. Probably won't help those who clip in, but those who don't might come in handy. I plan to check them out myself when I get back in the country.

Product Info, Search for local dealers

LOL, nice one. I'd like a set for wheels too after all the posts I've read about people crashing on the ice over the last few days.

I've been using them for the last 3 yrs and I love them ! They also have a cheaper model which works just fine.
