Cross Spikes Patents Awarded

Horst Engineering received its first ever international patents, one for each of our six Cross Spikes™ designs. This culminates a two year effort and major investment to solidify our position as the innovator of the premier cyclocross and mountain biking toe spike system. Our late founder, Horst Liebenstein, learned the tool and die trade at a German bicycle factory. He would be proud of this achievement.

Our Cross Spikes™ system is the most comprehensive toe spikes solution available for enhanced traction and performance. Compatible with most mountain shoes, They are designed for the rigors of cyclocross, but are excellent for mountain biking, gravel grinding, and mixed-surface adventures. Our six core models, Kits, and Pro Kits are available in stainless steel and Titanium.

See our Patent & Intellectual Property page for more details.
