The Blitz Spike is an ultralight trail traction device. Engineered for fast and light missions with ultimate packability, the Blitz Spike features 6 stainless steel spikes on the forefoot for superior strength and durability.
Black Diamond says:
Drawing from our extensive experience designing climbing crampons, the 6 forefoot spikes have an optimized 8mm length, designed to provide excellent engagement on snow and ice, with improved stability on rock when the trail ends and the scramble begins. The heel retention elastomer and webbing toe loop keeps the Blitz featherweight while providing a stable and secure fit.
Black Diamond's Blitz Spike Traction Device is an ultralight weight micro spike that is great for fast and light adventures on frozen ground. At such a low weight they provide an impressive amount of forefoot grip. The six 8mm spikes are all located towards the forefoot which is ideal for using with lightweight approach and trail shoes.
At such a low weight and with the small pack size these are very much minimalist crampons. The simple but hard wearing toe and heel webbing help keep the weight down and make getting the spikes on and off easy.
