Welcome To Lite Spikes
Lite Spikes is the Authorised Australian Distributor of Omni Lite Ceramic Aluminium Spikes. Why should you upgrade to Omni Lite replacement ceramic track and field spikes?
Omni Lite Spikes
- Patented space-age ceramic aluminium material
- Light weight. Omni Lite spikes weigh just 1/3 the weight of traditional metal spikes
- High performance for those athletes that want to run fast, faster, fastest and jump big, bigger, biggest
- Omni Lite spikes will not rust or corrode making for easy removal when the time comes
- Available in Christmas Tree, Pyramid, High Jump and Blank styles

Omni Lite spikes have been inspected and tested by leading synthetic track manufacturer and installer – Polytan. Polytan have approved both Omni Lite christmas tree and pyramid spikes for use on their synthetic tracks which in turn means you won’t risk voiding the warranty of the track by using non-approved spikes. Omni Lite 5mm, 7mm and 9mm pyramid spikes are the ONLY pyramid spikes permitted at the NSW Dept of Sport Narrabeen venue.

CARING FOR YOUR OMNI LITE SPIKES
Omni Lite replacement spikes are a premium spike available to use instead of using heavier steel spikes because your Coach has 'always used steel'. Omni Lites are made of a ceramic aluminium and weigh only 1/3 the weight of traditional steel spikes. With that weight advantage there is a trade off in that Omni Lite spikes may wear quicker than steel, particularly if they aren't looked after.
Spikes are no different than the tyres of your car, they are the point of contact with the track surface. If you mistreat the tyres on your car, they will wear out quicker than normal. The same applies to your spikes irrespective of what they are made of.
Here are a few points that we recommend all athletes do to get the very best out of their spikes.
- AVOID HARD SURFACES. Please do not walk, jog or run on hard surfaces like concrete or bitumen when wearing your spikes. Hard surfaces will damage your Omni Lite spikes in no time at all.
- There is no need to over tighten Omni Lite spikes when you install them in your shoes. Just nip them up and check them regularly, particularly before competition.
- Check your Omni Lites for signs of wear regularly. Again just like the tyres on your car, if and when you notice signs of your spikes wearing, rotate them around your shoe. Typically the spikes on one side of your shoe will wear more than the other side depending on your pronation. Simply move the spikes around on the shoe which may help to even out the wear on the spikes and increase their life span.
- Most running shoes have 10-12 spikes per pair of shoes. We sell Omni Lites in bags of 14 or 20 so you will always have plenty of spares when the time comes to replace worn spikes.
- The colour of the spikes will eventually wear off. This is entirely normal and is a cool way to see just how far your spikes actually push in to the track and is another good indicator of pronation and just which spikes are working the hardest as you propel yourself down the track.

Lite Spikes is based in Regional NSW. Postage times from our area often differ to the postage times afforded to larger city areas. We will guarantee to have your order in the mail to you within 2 business days of placing your order. As we are sure you can appreciate, we have no control over how long it takes Australia Post to deliver your order to you once it has left our hands.
We offer several postage options to give you the flexibility to choose how you would like us to send your order to you. We recommend choosing an option that includes tracking.
Standard Post is the cheapest option. We can get up to 8 bags delivered at the standard rate of $2.50 or 9-16 bags for $3.50. Please note, there is NO tracking or insurance with standard post.
Registered Post is our recommended option for orders up to 8 bags. The cost of Registered Post is $6.50 which includes online tracking and up to $100 insurance. We prefer Registered Post over Express Post because Australia Post will not guarantee overnight delivery using Express Post and there is no insurance included with it.
Express Post (Signature On Delivery) - is another option that offers online tracking on your order. Please be aware that Australia Post will NOT guarantee overnight delivery from our location. Express Post does NOT offer any type of insurance on your order. The cost of Express Post is $6.50 and we would expect orders using Express Post to potentially arrive quicker than standard or registered post.
Australia Post - Parcel Post (Up to 500gr) provides you with tracking but NO insurance. The cost of parcel post is $9.00. We can post up to 35 bags using this shipping option.
Fastway Couriers is another option that any of our customers can choose and will be used for large orders (8 or more bags). Fastway offers comprehensive online tracking and to date we have not had any issues with their service. Fastway satchels start from as little as $8.50 for delivery within the Fastway network. If you are outside of the Fastway network please get in touch with us to discuss other delivery options for you.
For bulk orders, the following Fastway satchels are available.
