YakTrax Pro

Yaktrax-bob
Yaktrax Pro

YakTrax Pro: Great traction! We like the Pro (vs. the Walker) because the strap holds them onto your shoes. They run a bit small, so if you are at the upper end of the sizing, get the next size up. Sure wish I’d had my YakTrax the day I slipped in the parking lot before cross country skiing. Now these lightweight, compact slip-on cuties go with me everywhere I might encounter snow or ice. $29.95

Petzl Tikka Plus 2 LED Headlamp

Petzl Tikka Plus 2 LED Headlamp

The lightweight Petzl Tikka Plus 2 headlamp pulls together 5 lighting modes to ensure you can see and be seen during nighttime adventures of all flavors. Single high-output LED provides even, white lighting throughout your field of vision with no blank spots in the beam; special lens optimizes the reach of the beam to 35m. Red LED positioned to the side of the white LED lets you preserve your night vision or use the headlamp as a blinking light to increase your visibility in urban environments. Push-button switch easily changes between 3 white lighting modes (high, low and flashing) so you can choose the appropriate light level for the task at hand. Also change between 2 red lighting modes (continuous and blinking). White light on low level provides up to 140 hrs. of use and on high up to 55 hrs.; red continuous provides up to 100 hrs. Hold down the on/off switch to change between red and white lighting modes. Battery charge indicator light comes on when the beam distance diminishes to 5m and when there is only 50% battery life remaining for proximity lighting. Provides IPX4 water resistance for reliability in inclement weather. Headlamp tilts to point light where you need it. Adjustable elastic headband holds the light securely in place; colorful headband and plastic casing add a little style. Compatible with the Petzl Adapt Tikka 2 system (not included), which allows you to quickly and easily attach the light in a variety of places. Battery compartment is hinged to allow simpler access than the previous version of the Tikka Plus; compartment closes easily and securely. Runs on 3 AAA alkaline batteries, included; Tikka Plus 2 is compatible with lithium batteries, which are lighter than alkaline batteries and perform well in cold temperatures.

Open Finger Gloves

Open Finger Gloves

Basic bike gloves can significantly improve your pole performance. These Fox gloves are discontinued and we have a small supply available. We have looked for 6 years for the perfect gloves for using with poles and finally found these. They have no Velcro to get caught in the strap, they’re washable and have finger pockets for easy removal. Fingerless are all purpose gloves, lightweight with terry and mesh. They have just the right amount of padding to improve power with poles and prevent chaffing in the crook of your hand. Most sizes available in Red/Tan and Black/Gray. $25 + shipping & tax.
