As with all SPIKES-SPIDER snow chain systems, the COMPACT is designed to last.

The COMPACT system is made almost entirely from engineering grade polymers – extremely resistant to abrasion whilst remaining strong and flexible in temperatures as low as -40C.

The traction arms incorporate tungsten carbide tipped studs to provide excellent grip on icy surfaces.  As well as being extremely durable they are also designed so that the driving surface can be replaced.  Traction arms are available separately as replacement parts and are simply clipped in place.

Like all standard SPIKES SPIDER snow chain systems, the COMPACT utilizes the common steel mounting hub and quarter-turn locking plate.




The COMPACT system is available in 4 sizes, each covering a range of wheel diameters (please see the Tire Size Selector to select your size)

The patented adjuster provides each size with a Small “S” and Large “L” adjustment using a cam that is easy to turn.  Most components are also common between sizes.  See our detailed explanation on component commonality and size adjustment.
