Whether you are travelling up the mountains to ski, snowboard, or hike: Tire socks have got you covered.

Winter tire chains are heavy and complicated to install, often resulting in a lengthy delay and sometimes frostbitten fingers.

Instead, use easy to install, light weight SnowGecko winter traction tire socks. A light weight set of SnowGecko tire socks are an emergency winter traction device that are easy to install and help get you to where you are going. A set of SnowGeckos come in a space saving heavy duty carrying bag, made from durable plastic, that doubles as a mat to kneel on during installation, keeping your clothes clean.

After use, reusable SnowGeckos are removed easily then stored back in the bag until you get home where they can be washed, dried, re-bagged and set back in your trunk, ready for the next time they are needed.
