It’s the simple things. If you get them right, everything else falls into place. Or in the case of not having spikes in your ‘cross shoes, you fall on your face. We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on a set of these beautiful crafted, ‘cross-specific spikes from the folks at Horst Engineering in the USA via the local importers at Fluent in Cross.
We’ve got a set of the medium spikes on test, which measure up to a 13.3mm long – or about the size of a 20 pence piece. They’re also available in short (11mm) and long (17.6) as well as a few other shapes for ice use.
We’ll be putting them to test in the frankly appealing weather conditions we’ve had of late and reporting back, hopefully, with our faces muck-free.
