Unlike nails embedded in shoe soles, today's Pyramid Spikes contain a thread which is screwed into spike wells. This makes them easily replaceable when the time comes, with replacement spikes.
The conical design of Pyramid Spikes mean that they have a sharp tip, which will penetrate the track surface to provide traction. Compared to other spike styles, Pyramid Spikes will penetrate a track surface more deeply, as the force of an athlete will be concentrated onto the narrow tip.
Overtime, the tip will wear down from usage, blunting the spike. Our spikes are made from quenched and tempered steel, which maximises their strength and durability. When taken care of, the spikes will last a long time before needing replacement.
Although they can be used for all events, 6mm Pyramid Spikes are usually preferred by athletes over Christmas Tree Spikes when competing in long distance events and steeplechase. For other events (sprints, middle distance and jumps) whether an athlete prefers Pyramid Spikes or Christmas Tree Spikes is a personal preference.
We also stock 9mm Pyramid Spikes, which are for use in field events. Further, our Grass Spikes range (12mm and 15mm) are also technically a Pyramid Spike.
