Vancouver, BC - Hillsound Equipment- the leading producer of adventure and fishing traction equipment and gaiters for urban and outdoor enthusiasts- will support Canadian-based Adventure Race team, Team Équilibre in 2015.

The team of four will participate in 7 races throughout 2015 including Sea to Sea, Raid Pulse, Equinox Traverse, Lost World Series, Adventure Racing World Series USA, Wilderness Traverse, and the Adventure Racing World Championships. These grueling races can last from a couple of hours up to 10 days, demanding a combination of two or more endurance disciplines, including navigation skills, cross-country running, mountain biking, paddling, and climbing.

“I used the Trail Crampon Pro extensively on our last winter training weekend in New Hampshire’s White Mountains and I cannot recall having so much worth of gear for my money,” said team member Alexandre Provost. “It took me only seconds to adjust them with my running shoes and there I was clawing my way up and down the icy trails. We will have to travel on glaciers at Expedition Alaska this summer and I’m already confident that we will overtake opponents with the firm grip provided by the Trail Crampon Pro.”

Since 2011, Team Équilibre has had numerous top finishes including 1st place wins in the Race the Phantom, Equinox Traverse, and Wilderness Traverse races. This year, the team’s goal is to compete in the Adventure Racing World Series, a 6-day non-stop 470km (about 292 miles) expedition race in Anchorage, Alaska. This is the qualifying race for the 2015 World Championships, which will be held in Brazil and attracts spectators from around the world.

“Hillsound Equipment is psyched to support Team Équilibre,” said Hillsound Equipment Marketing Manager Jessica Greinke. “The team continues to set the bar higher and higher with each race. We are thrilled to provide them with the gear they need to prepare for these demanding competitions.”

The Trail Crampon Pro combines some of the benefits of a traditional crampon with the comfort of a non-technical crampon. It is ideal for someone seeking a slightly more aggressive terrain. Utilizing simple ratchet buckle bindings, these crampons can be fastened effortlessly to most footwear.
