Yaktrax Pro Benefits

You can to walk naturally.

When a traction device does require that you walk unnaturally, you tend to forget yourself, especially in an emergency, and take a natural step. When you do, you risk slipping and injurying yourself. With Yaktrax Pro, you don't have to learn any new skills. You're safer because you walk the same way you do on dry pavement.

You get excellent traction on ice and packed snow.

That's because Yaktrax Pro shares the same exclusive, proven spikeless SKIDLOCK ice traction system originally introduced with the Yaktrax Walk. The shaped hand-wound stainless steel coils give your footwear hundreds of biting edges that grip the ice for 360° traction.

Note: You get the same amazing traction using both the Yaktrax Walk and Yaktrax Pro. The Pro is simply more durable and stays on your footwear better.

The Pro is designed for frequent use and vigorous outdoor activities like work and winter sports.
Yaktrax Pro's
  • hand-wound 1.4mm stainless steel coils on the are stronger and thicker than the 1.2mm coils used on the Yaktrax Walk. One of the main reasons Yaktrax wears out is that the coils abrade over time. Thicker coils last longer. But the traction, regardless of the thickness, is the same.
  • straps are a much stronger, tougher real-rubber compound instead of Yaktrax Walk's elastomer straps. Therefore, the straps are less likely to break, and they stay more securely on your shoes and boots because the elasticity is much stronger. That's important if you're participating in vigorous outdoor winter activities and helps keep them aligned and on your feet when you're walking through deep and particularly wet snow. And although strong and more durable, the straps remain flexible at temperatures as low as -41°F.
  • Yaktrax Pro Coils, Straps, and Wear Nub lastly, straps last longer because of nubs that reinforce and protect high wear points.
Yaktrax Pro stays in place on your footwear during strenuous activities and won't come off in deep snow.
Yaktrax Pro Velcro Performance Strap That's because Yaktrax Pro has a removable Velcro® performance strip. The reason it's removable is because, although it's a simple process, it's one more thing you have to deal with when your putting them on and taking them off. If you don't need the Performance Strap, simply take it off. That's important because you have to take all Yaktrax off before you go indoors. Steel coils can be very slippery on dry smooth surfaces like the floors found in supermarkets, drug stores, etc.
The Pro is so light-weight you won't even notice the additional weight on your footwear.
The biggest XL Pro weighs just 7 oz.
You always have Yaktrax Pro with you when you need it because it's foldable.
The Pro folds up into a small package that fits in your briefcase, backpack, car console, and glove compartment. You'll always be ready for that unexpected freezing rain.

Compare Yaktrax Pro to Yaktrax Walk

Yaktrax Walk gives you the same traction as the Pro. However, the Pro is more durable because the steel coils are 1.4mm vs the Walk's 1.2mm coils and the straps are real-rubber and stronger vs. the Walk's elastomer straps. The Pro also has a removable Velcro® Performance Strap that helps to keep the traction cleats aligned on your footwear and from coming off in deep snow.

Winter Conditions Where Yaktrax Pro Improves Traction

Yaktrax Pro is a medium-duty traction device for outdoor use that gives you instant, improved traction on ice and packed snow only. Yaktrax spikeless traction devices are not designed for traction in deeper snow, slush, black ice, and mud.
Spikeless ice cleats become less effective in frigid temperatures when ice is denser. Read my Ice Cleats Selection Guide to find out more.

How Do People Use Yaktrax Pro?

To eliminate the inconvenience of having to take off your ice cleats before going indoors, check out Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats or Winter Walking Ice Beast Low-Pro Ice Cleats.

Are Yaktrax Pro Good for Senior Citizens?

Yaktrax Pro may not be the best choice if you're a senior citizen with weakness in your arms or hands or for people with disabilities and medical conditions. That's because the stronger straps are harder to stretch. The added durability won't do you any good if you can't get them on your shoes and boots.

Consider the Yaktrax Walk, or Winter Walking SPARE SPIKE Ice Cleats that have Dual Pull Straps™ and Dual-Density Construction.

Consider Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats or Winter Walking Ice Beast Low-Pro Ice Cleats if you
  • have problems putting ice cleats on;
  • live in a city; or
  • frequent get in and out of your car; or
  • lastly, frequently transition in and out of doors.

Are Yaktrax Pro Good for Businesses?

You have several excellent choices for ice cleats for businesses that are not always easily found or made clear doing research online. Many times you're under pressure to find a quick answer because the icy conditions are already here. But keep these thoughts in mind.
  • If you choose the wrong ice traction devices you can actually increase the risk for injuries.
  • No one ice traction device is best for all situations.
  • Many times you need more than one type of ice cleat to reduce lost time accidents.

Yaktrax Pro Warnings and Safety Tips

Yaktrax Pro will not damage most indoor floors. Nevertheless, you must remove all Yaktrax spikeless models before walking on smooth, dry floors because Yaktrax are extremely slippery on these surfaces.

You should not drive while wearing Yaktrax. The straps can catch on pedals.

I do not recommend Yaktrax if you live or work in a city because Yaktrax are slippery on smooth surfaces that include

  • sewer grates;
  • utility hole covers;
  • flooring in train stations;
  • metallic steps found on buses and trains; and
  • lastly, tile, brick, or marble surfaces.
You shouldn't use Yaktrax on surfaces covered with sand or loose gravel.

If you are unable or unwilling to remove them before going indoors or driving, or you live or work in a city, consider Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats or Winter Walking Ice Beast Low-Pro Ice Cleats because you can wear these ice cleats indoors, on most floors, and while driving. Furthermore, LOW-PRO and ICE BEAST LOW-PRO also gives you better traction on the city hazards mentioned above.

"The Yaktrax Pro are awesome! I use them everyday in the snow and ice. Without them I would not be able to do my job without falling about 10-15 times a day! This winter has been especially difficult staying on my feet, but the Yaktrax Pro gives me the confidence I need to stay upright!" Mark N., Hebron, IL 01/24/14

"They will help with walking in snow but I just discovered ICE! (I am from L.A.) Isn't there another type especially for not slipping on ice? If you carried the ones with small picks? on bottom, I would look into that also." Linda M., Tekoa, WA 01/20/14

"They're great on snow and give you a reasonable amount of traction on ice. They stay on my shoes very securely but are not too difficult to take on or off. The one complaint I have is that I was looking for something that works equally well on bare pavement and covered surfaces. That's because the areas I walk include a combination of both (e.g., sidewalks or parking lots with icy patches, or snow-covered paths with periodic clean areas). Yaktrax are not very secure on cleared surfaces, and it probably wears them out very quickly. While they're removable, it's not practical to take them on and off as you're walking along. However, Yaktax are excellent when used for what they are intended!" Jeremy C., Bryn Mawr, PA 01/19/14

Yaktrax Pro FAQs

Does Yaktrax Pro give you better traction than the Yaktrax Walk?
Generally, no. However, the Pro uses more durable materials, and the coils are thicker. The Pro's traction is somewhat superior because the thicker, stronger straps and Velcro® Performance strap keeps them better aligned on your footwear. Maintaining alignment on footwear is important to you during strenuous activities like shoveling snow.
How long do Yaktrax Pro last?
Yaktrax are a consumable just like any other article of clothing or ice cleat. The Pro's durability depends upon several factors including
  • your weight;
  • how often you use them;
  • how much bare payment you'll be walking on because it's rare that every foot of a sidewalk, parking lot, or road is completely covered with ice and packed snow. It's unreasonable to remove them and then put them back on every time you encounter a dry patch.

    Bare spots speed up the abrasion on the steel coils because the coils are abrasion-resistant, not abrasion-proof; and
  • lastly, if you'll be walking over rough surfaces that may tend to cut the rubber straps.
If you're looking for something more durable, check out industrial-strength ice cleats.

Now having said all that, on the average, you can expect two seasons. When you consider the cost per use it's very low-cost insurance compared to the cost of an injury.

Will Yaktrax eliminate my risk of slipping on ice and packed snow?
No. No traction device can guarantee you won't slip and fall on ice. What Yaktrax can do is significantly decrease the probability that you won't fall making the risk acceptable.
Do Yaktrax work in unpacked snow or slush?

No. SPARE SPIKE Ice Cleats are a low cost alternative for Yaktrax that will work in regular snow and slush.

HIGH-PRO Ice Cleats are an exciting new alternative to Yaktrax Pro that will work in deep snow, slush, and black ice as well as on packed snow and ice.

Must I remove my Yaktrax every time I go indoors?
You must remove Yaktrax before going indoors where there are smooth, dry floors. Examples include floors found in the grocery store, drug store, train station, or post office. That's because all Yaktrax are extremely slippery on these floors.

If you're not physically able, or unwilling, to remove Yaktrax or you are constantly going in and out of doors consider LOW-PRO Ice Cleats or ALTRAGRIPS-LITE LOW PROFILE Ice Cleats
Are Yaktrax Pro Good for Running?

While people do successfully use Yaktrax Pro for Running, I do not recommend it. Here's why.

  • A key component for traction on ice is the aggressiveness of the traction system. Yaktrax Pro's wound steel coils give you hundreds of biting edges to grip the ice. However, those edges are non-aggressive, and it takes hundreds working in concert to provide traction.

    When you jog, your foot lands with a jolt, which tends to make you lose traction. Losing traction with Yaktrax Pro is more likely since a limited section of the non-aggressive coils initially makes contact with the ice. As any NASCAR driver will tell you, once you lose traction, it's almost impossible to regain, and you'll most often slip and fall.
  • Non-aggressive ice cleats become less effective in frigid temperatures when ice is denser.
  • A common point of failure with Yaktrax is that a coil will break. If the coil breaks while you're running, it can get snagged on your pants leg causing you to trip and fall forward.

To be clear, I don't recommend running on ice with any ice cleats. However, if you must, choose ice cleats with well-positioned 2mm tungsten carbide studs.

Also, check for studs located at the base of your heel and near the front. These are the areas where you're landing and pushing off, having the fewest or, in most cases, no studs, and most likely to lose traction.

Are Yaktrax good for hiking?

It depends where, how often, and how long you're hiking. Yaktrax are not designed to be used off-road.

  • Rough surfaces will cut the straps and abrade the steel coils.
  • The steel coils can be extremely slippery on exposed rocks especially if they're smooth or rounded.
  • Yaktrax should not be worn on sandy or gravel covered surfaces.
  • Frequent non-ice and snow covered surfaces will also affect durability.
What's the difference between Yaktrax Walk and Yaktrax Walker?
There is no difference. Implus changed the name from Yaktrax Walker to Yaktrax Walk.
Do Yaktrax work on black ice?
I do not recommend you use Yaktrax for use on black ice because you need more aggressive traction. Consider Winter Walking HIGH-PRO or Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats.
I've read that Yaktrax have 10 times more biting edges than spiked ice cleats. Does this mean the traction is 10 times better than spiked ice cleats?
No. The key to traction on ice is penetration. Yaktrax stainless steel coils are non-aggressive. Therefore, traction requires hundreds of biting edges to equal the traction of just one well-designed spike. In addition, the non-aggressive coils become less effective in frigid temperatures when ice is denser.

It depends. You must remove Yaktrax before you go indoors if the floor is smooth because the steel coils are extremely slippery on those surfaces. Examples include the supermarket, drug store, and post office. If it's not easy for you to take Yaktrax off and put them back on you have a problem.

You should remove Yaktrax before you drive because the straps can impede movement between the pedals.

Note: Yaktrax Walk is easier to put on and take off than the Yaktrax Pro because the straps aren't as strong.

If you live in the city, you must be careful where you step because Yaktrax can be extremely slippery on utility covers, sewer grates, floors in train stations, smooth bricks, tile floors, and on entry steps on mass transit.

If you have to negotiate steeper inclines, or you live where temperatures drop to extremely low temperatures, you want a more aggressive traction device.

If these situations apply to you, got to Ice Cleats for Senior Citizens and the Elderly.

Will Yaktrax work on Ski Boots?
No. There is a product called SKITRAX™ but I don't currently sell them.
Will Yaktrax work on Neos® Boots or Bunny Boots?
No. Please visit Ice Cleats for Large, Bulky Boots.
Will Yaktrax work on roofs?
No. Furthermore the metal on metal contact climbing a ladder would be extremely hazardous. Visit Korkers.com to find slip resistant shoe attachments specifically designed for roofers. I'm not endorsing the Korkers cleats.
What is the Yaktrax Extreme?
If you order a Yaktrax Extreme online, you will receive a Yaktrax Pro, the same product and packaging, because there is no such thing as a Yaktrax Extreme. There is a totally different spiked product called the Yaktrax XTR EXTREME™ designed for off road use.
Yaktrax Pro sizes run small. If your shoe size is at the top of a size range shown below, you may be better off getting the next larger size, especially if you plan to wear them over heavy boots or shoes. If you can't decide, choose the bigger size.
