Kahtoola Snow Release skins are very lightweight and easy to fit, they markedly reduce the problem of snow buildup on their KTS crampons.
Kahtoola says: “Snowballing” adds weight and can eliminate traction, especially in mushy spring conditions. Made of durable, reinforced neoprene that won’t crack or freeze, the SRS is our version of an anti-balling plate for crampons… but ours are the lightest in the industry! Fits all sizes of KTS steel and aluminum.
Kahtoola's KTS Snow Release Skins compliment the KTS crampons and are a real necessity for certain snow conditions such as during a thaw when snow and ice can really compromise the effectiveness of crampons. The Snow Release skins are very light and easy to fit.
