Horst Engineering’s Goldilocks spike, effective in medium mud and sand, shorter than the Medium spike, but with a longer effective spike length due to the smaller wrench flats.
An every day option for people with smaller feet or who feel even the medium spikes are long enough to get in the way. If your shoe has low profile lugs underneath, this might be what you are looking for!
If you’re going with the shorter spike to keep it out of way… it’s best for it to be strong and light right?
Titanium for the win.
“This cyclocross spike is good for all conditions including sand, mud, wet, and dry courses.
These spikes are based on the traditional design but have smaller wrench flats to increase the effective spike length. They are ideal for women, juniors, riders with smaller feet, or anyone interested in this style.
This length is not only great for cyclocross, but gives you a little extra traction during your mountain biking, gravel, and mixed-surface adventures.
Unlike “spade” style cleats, spikes, and lugs, our cylindrical design and precision machined surface finish naturally sheds mud so that it doesn’t cake or clump.
Titanium is known for its high strength and toughness, durability and low density, and ability to withstand high and low temperatures. Titanium resists, doesn’t stain, and is much lighter than stainless steel.
Our aerospace grade stainless steel cross spikes are a fantastic option, and a great value. Our Titanium cross spikes are the ultimate toe spikes for uncompromising performance in all conditions.”
