MaxTrax Releases Their Newest Color :: Turquoise

Overland News

There are few overland products as recognizable and as universally useful for backcountry travel as a few sets of MaxTrax. For over a decade, we have used MaxTrax for remote travel. And when we needed them, we really needed them. In recent years, they have expanded the product line to include the new Extreme model with replaceable teeth, the Mini, and even a line of recovery gear. This week, they announced another new color, Turquoise. And for anyone that has needed to dig for black MaxTrax in deep mud in the middle of the Canning Stock Route, having a bright color is a good idea.

  • Sold as a pair with two telltale leashes
  • Made in Australia, from Australian materials
