Yes, snow and ice are for running. Sure, most times we would prefer an open trail, but sometimes winter sticks around too long, or that snowcapped peak is just calling. If your adventures may involve a wintery mix you can combat the elements with Black Diamond's Distance Spike traction devices. Built for fast and light approaches, these handy helpers are compact and low weight so it's an easy choice to bring them along on that spring outing. If you're hard on your gear that's ok! Stainless steel spikes and reinforced dual-density eyelets are ready to push through the rough patches with you. Snow and ice can become your friend when you set out with your Distance Spikes from Black Diamond.

  • Hybrid upper conforms to the top of your foot for a no-slip fit that helps you stay on the trail and on target.
  • Elastomer heel retention strap creates additional security to keep spikes and straps in place.
  • Heat-treated stainless-steel spikes are durable and keep their bite over time.
  • Heel loop makes it easy to slip these devices both on and off.
  • Included stuff sack keeps you organized on the trail, or in your car.

Questions & Reviews

Ben (downright abused product)
The Distance Spikes are one of the best new trail running products of the last several years. They replaced the Kathoola Microspikes for me and they're a big improvement. They are 4oz lighter and fit much more securely. The Microspikes were designed to fit hiking shoes, and they tended to move around on my low-profile running shoes while the Distance Spikes fit much more securely. The Distance also pack down much smaller. The Kathoola spikes are 10mm long while the Distance spikes are 8mm long so they aren't quite as solid but they're good enough for most trails. I also have Hillsound Trail Crampons with 17mm spikes for steeper and exposed routes but I've barely used them since getting the Distance Spikes which are good enough for trails and low-angle glaciers.
