Christmas Tree Spikes - Steel
EXTRA TRACTION equates to FASTER RUNS !
Quality product Made in USA
Christmas Tree (also known as compression tier spikes) NOT to pierce the track, but rather compress the surface with the energy returning back to the sprinter / runner. This version (i.e. no sharp point) has an explosive reactive rebound effect, and also helps reduce the seriousness of injury should a runner get accidentally spiked.
14 pieces Stainless Steel Spikes (2 pieces Balancers) in a universal threaded head suitable for use with all brands of Track & Field spike shoes. Built for the track star competing in a variety of events, this will allow you to perform to your best. The staple for Track & Field & runners alike.
Grip the track better, getting traction even in wet or otherwise harsh conditions. A variety of spike types exist. Smaller, spikes, such as these, often work on standard tracks for short/medium distances.
Spikes are meant to help athletes perform their best on the track. They are super light-weight and give you that extra boost that could be the difference between second and first place. Every ounce of your effort is translated into a reaction/forward movement when your foot & the spike cleats comes into contact with the track. Why waste it without track & Field spikes?
WHAT KIND OF SPIKES DO I NEED?
Shoe companies usually have three types of spikes based on your running events: sprint, mid-distance, and long-distance. The sprint can be anywhere from 100 meters to 400 meters, and the mid-distance can cover 800 meters to 5000 meters, making it a good all-around spike for the athlete who does a little bit of everything.
DO SPIKES FIT DIFFERENTLY THAN RUNNING SHOES?
We like to have about a thumb length of room in our running shoes, but we want a snug fit in our spikes so you may need a half or full size smaller than your running shoes. Please fit your spikes to make sure you have the right size for your feet.
SHOULD I ONLY WEAR SPIKES TO RACE?
Spikes are very light with little cushion, and are normally used on race day. This doesn't mean you can’t use them for a hard track workout but this should be the exception. Ensure you have a new pair of running shoes for your training runs & use them at least on a 60/40 ratio and keep the spikes for the meets where you really need them & for regular training stints in your regime.
WHAT ABOUT CHANGING THE SPIKES?
After a while your spikes will wear down and you will want to replace them. We have a variety of spikes of all different lengths as well.
