New this year, the Elektra 8 Series offer Atlas performance mainstays like Spring-Loaded Suspension and Elektra women¿s design at our best value. The Elektra 8 Series snowshoe use the new no-fuss, no-hassle Strapp binding, with excellent arch support, gender-specific lasts and Uniloop pull, all in a minimalist form. Deeper crampon penetration and the security of tempered steel heel cleats ensure confident steps. Forgiving Nytex decking and our proven aluminum V-frames offer superior durability no matter the conditions. Because the biomechanical differences between a man¿s stride and a woman¿s are just as important for beginners as they are for experts, the new Elektra 8 Series features our proprietary Elektra frame designed for a woman¿s narrower stance.
