Hillsound Traction Device

Living in the Ottawa Valley, we see a lot of ice, freezing rain, wet slushy snow. This device is like having winter tires on your feet! You don't need to fall to throw out your back, you just need a good slip. Confidence in your stride makes all the difference in the winter.

I love this lamp. It is very lightweight and comfortable. I use to run with a head lamp, but since I tried this, I'll never go back! It is bright and you can adjust the reflective strips on them. The red triangle blinks for extra visibility and safety on those night runs!

These shoes can tell you lots of stories. I use to only get 500km in my running sneakers because the soles would wear down to nothing. My Brooks Ghost 11 still have a lot of life in them. Best pair of sneakers I've owned! I will be running in Brooks from now on!
