Reduce the risk of slipping on ice!

Yaktrax®, “named after the Tibetan yak”, are light-weight ice grips worn over your regular walking shoes, winter boots, jogging or running shoes when walking on packed snow and ice in winter.

There is no better way to prevent accidents caused by slips and falls on ice.

Conditions Underfoot
