Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Features

Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Ice Cleats Closeup
  • Twenty Eight well distributed tungsten carbide studs.
  • TRANSITIONAL TRACTION - ICE BEAST LOW-PRO are safe to wear on most indoor floors because the 1mm studs minimally protrude beyond the tread. Therefore, both the studs and the tread make contact with the surface.
  • ICE BEAST LOW-PRO are safe to wear while you're driving.
  • Aggressive studs quickly penetrate the coldest, densest ice where less aggressive studs and spikeless ice cleats with wound steel coils fail.
  • Tungsten carbide studs are far more durable than the carbon steel studs found on most competing products.
  • The stud distribution guarantees that at least one aggressive stud will likely be in contact with the ground no matter how uneven the surface.
  • The patented heel spikes are crucial because your heel is the first thing to strike the ground when you take a normal step. Heel spikes allow you to walk naturally. Many ice and snow traction devices force you to walk more flat-footed. Because walking flat-footed is not normal, you tend to forget. And one misplaced step can cause you to slip and fall.
  • Spikes are not replaceable. But the mounting mechanism required with replaceable spikes makes them thicker and can cause discomfort for some people... like standing on marbles... especially over long periods of time. Permanently molded-in spikes are more secure therefor eliminating one more potential point of failure.
  • Spikes at Front and Heel Spikes allow you to walk naturally. There are no special skills to learn.
  • Aggressive, Self-Cleaning Treads provide traction in deep snow and slush while assuring studs stay in contact with icy surfaces.
  • Versatile because Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Ice Cleats
    • fit over all types of shoes and boots;
    • provide traction in all slippery winter conditions; and
    • are safe to wear while driving.
  • Patented Open Design 
    • stays securely on footwear, and
    • is lightweight & compact.
  • Strong Straps and several exclusive patented features keep ICE BEAST securely on footwear and properly aligned.
  • Patented Dual Pull Tabs and a Proprietary Strap Material make ICE BEAST Ice Cleats easy to put on and take off even at extremely low temperatures.
  • Bright Orange Color facilitates compliance monitoring.

Winter Walking HEEL-GRIPS Ice Cleats Features

"When you wear heel-only ice cleats, you're relying on far fewer studs for traction. This is no time to go for bargain brands because everything, both the straps and the studs, needs to be top-notch and totally reliable. When you choose Winter Walking HEEL-GRIPS Ice Cleats, you're assured that you've chosen the best, industry-leading, practical, and professional-quality ice cleats. Here's why."
Winter Walking HEEL-GRIPS Ice Cleats Demo
Strap-on Heel Ice Cleats serve double duty because they
  • prevent the heel from slipping; and
  • also, they have to provide sufficient traction to prevent your footwear from twisting, especially on uneven ice.

This is why you'll appreciate the professional quality features Winter Walking has incorporated into HEEL-GRIPS® Ice Cleats. It's the culmination of over 40 years of experience in manufacturing industry-standard professional ice cleats. HEEL-GRIPS stand out from the competition. You'll get the best possible traction from a Heel Ice Cleat because of

  • there are 14 Well-Distributed 2mm Tungsten Carbide Studs - five on each Heel Grip;
  • Tungsten Carbide Studs are the hardest and most durable far exceeding the life of carbon steel studs found in most competing products;
  • the Stud Design assures that they will remain equally aggressive and effective throughout the life of your HEEL-GRIPS.
  • Well-Positioned Studs assure the maximum number of studs will make contact on uneven ice;
  • the studs are molded in to ensure maximum reliability and durability;

LOW-PRO HEEL Ice Cleats Features

LOW-PRO Heel Ice Cleats
  • reduce slips and falls on ice, snow, packed snow and black ice; and
  • are low cost, compact, lightweight and fit all types of shoes and boots.
You use strap-on heel cleats when full size ice cleats are not an option. This would include situations whereby limiting the cleats to the heel section of shoes or boots
  • insures compliance with company safety directives prohibiting wearing anything on footwear that might somehow inhibit operating foot controls while driving;
  • fully exposes the defined heel on shoes and boots to make climbing ladders safer; and
  • lastly, reduces the risk of slipping off foot rests while operating equipment, snowmobiles, ATVs, and the pedals while biking on snow and ice.

Use LOW-PRO HEEL cleats with Transitional Traction if you're constantly driving and going in and out of doors. More aggressive heel-only ice cleats are not practical under these circumstances because you must remove them every time you go indoors. You must remove aggressive ice cleats because they'll damage the floor or be slippery on smooth, hard surfaces.

Use HEEL-GRIPS Ice Cleats if you're constantly driving and not frequently going indoors. The reason that I recommend HEEL-GRIPS in this situation is because they have 10 2mm Tungsten Carbide Studs for better traction.

Lastly, if you're constantly driving and going in and out of doors and not restricted from wearing full-sole ice cleats, I recommend Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats.

Strap-on heel ice cleats serve double duty.

  • prevent the heel from slipping; and

Employees Won't Resist Wearing LOW-PRO HEEL

Most employees are under extreme pressure to remain on schedule. Naturally, having to stop and remove their ice cleats and then put them back on every time they transition in and out of doors is both frustrating and time-consuming. If you wonder how in the world they put with it, I have a news flash. They don't! Many times, they can't! However, the fact that they can safely wear the LOW-PRO HEEL on most indoor floors and while driving decimates and often eliminates the problem. The employees are safer. Your lost-time accidents go down while productivity remains high.
 

ICE BEAST Ice Cleats Sizing Tips

ICE BEAST Ice Cleats run large. Therefore, if you have a normal winter boot and your shoe size is close to the minimum of a size range, choose the next smaller size. If you have a large, bulky boot, stick with the size chart.
Ice cleats sizes are unisex and fit men's and women's shoes and boots according to the sizing charts.
Always try your ice cleats on as soon as you receive them for two reasons.
  1. You want to be ready for the bad weather. Don't wait until the ice is on the ground to find out you need a size exchange.
  2. I can't do free size exchanges for ice cleats that have been used because I can't resell them.
FAQs
