Product Description

Spikes-Spider Apline traction device is excellent for use on ice and snow depth 6" and more. Alpine provides the most agressive traction available on deeper snow and steeper grades and slopes. Composed of a steel traction trac, combined with sharpened steel cross members, make for the most agressive traction available. The four arms are strong, composite metal. Four support arms connect to the trac between the arms, so the tires are encircled on the outside portion. The traction ovals are just as easy to put on as the Quick, Sport and Compact style. You just lay the trac on the top of the tire, center the traction oval on the previously installed steel hubs, lock on the holding ring, with a "click". Repeat on the other drive wheel. Drive a few revolutions and the traction ovals are forced by the four arms to self-mount on each tire tread. As with all Spikes-Spiders, the Alpine Pro cannot damage alloy wheels or interfere with vehicle braking, ABS, steering or suspension systems. The Spikes-Spider systems are especially designed to give safety in bad conditions, with the advantage that anyone can fit on the vehicle in only one-half minute for each side and can be removed just as fast. The Alpine Pro stores reasonably flat in the carrying case, so they take up a little less room than the Quick, but about the same as the Compact and Sport styles. Alpine Pro provides the most aggressive traction available on ice, snow, mud and wet grass for vans, pickups, 4x4s, SUVs and emergency service vehicles with large tires.

Spikes-Spider Alpine Series Winter Traction Aids are exceptionally easy-to-use traction devices that make studded tires and snow chains obsolete. Sold as a set, the Spikes-Spider Alpine Series package contains two four-armed traction aids (elements) that quickly snap on and off of drive wheels, even when stuck in snow. Providing the most aggressive traction of all Spikes-Spider products, the Alpine Series element is designed specifically for wide tires and for use in 6" or more snow across hilly areas and on steeper grades. Alpine Series elements utilize a network of four traction arms connected by links of adjustable steel track chain and safety clips that sit atop the tread of your tires. This provides all the traction that you will ever need in snow, ice, mud, etc. in an durable, easy-to-use application that installs and can be removed by anyone literally in 1-2 minutes and never tangles like standard tire chains. Additional features include: wear resistant polymer materials, a maximum recommended speed of 30 MPH with traction elements installed and a durable soft carrying case for all included series components.

Innovation in Tire Traction

Spikes-Spider Alpine Traction elements are an innovative alternative to old-fashioned snow chains and studded tires for use on ice and snow up to or even deeper than 6". The Spikes-Spider Alpine package comes in a set of two and is specifically designed for wide tires and for use on steeper grades and hilly terrain. Traction elements have four traction arms constructed of permanently elastic, wear resistant polymer materials, surrounding a central hub made up of those same materials. These four arms are connected by links of chain tracking holding adjustable safety clips that together cover the majority of your tire's tread This unique network of chains allows the arms of the Spikes-Spider Sport element to provide maximum traction in icy, snowy and every muddy road situations without affecting the tread of your tires.

The Easy, Fast and Clean Traction Solution

In addition to its superior traction abilities, Spikes-Spider Alpine Traction elements also are valuable tools simply by means of their extreme ease of use when compared with traction tires and chains. Again, the secret is its multiple flexible traction arms. Unlike standard snow chains that require you to reach into the dirty wheel wells of tires to strap them on and/or precisely lay them out in the freezing snow before driving on to them, Spikes-Spider Alpine elements simply attach to each of your drive wheels using a series of overlapping hubs. The first of these is a semi-permanent, heavy duty hub attached in advance to your tire's rim. The second is the Alpine Traction element. The third is a hand-turned locking ring that hold it all in place. Installation and removal of traction elements on two tires can be achieved in as little as a minute, and can even be done while stuck in the snow due to the space between traction arms and their adjustable nature, which allows elements to be attached, with the steel track traction chain automatically adjusting itself over tire treads as the car moves. Traction element removal is just as fast by removing the lock ring hub, pulling the element partially off and then driving your car a few feet to free the traction arms of the elements from under your tires.
