Kahtoola is an innovative enterprise founded by Danny Giovale, an avid outdoor enthusiast born and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona, at the base of the San Francisco Peaks. Danny is a hiker and trail runner who has trekked and climbed all over the world. His idea for the first product line, Kahtoola Traction Systems (KTS), came out of his own experience hiking in the early spring in the Dolomites with snow and ice on the trails.
