Distel Gecko Carbon Spikes

Recommended Posts

Measurment is the total length from the arch of your foot to the base of your knee.

 

I have the aluminium ones with velcro. They are spot on.

I'm 6'5" and wear the large carbons. They are soooo comfy!

 

Be warned though... Don't walk on concrete / hard surfaces with them as it will damage the carbon fibre.

 

Apart from that, they're perfect!

Try before you buy if you can. The wrong size will make for uncomfortable climbing.

 

I've already broken my carbons and Distel don't do repairs, however, the local boat builder did a fantsatic patch up job so they're even stronger than before.

opt for the leather boot strap, i got the velcro ones and can't get them tight enough and find they come loose sometimes......... and they clog with sawdust.
