- Enter your model number to make sure this fits.
- CustomWrap binding with Boa® Closure System offers exceptional precision with the twist of a dial. Rotating Toe Cord with Rotation Limiter allows the snowshoe tail to drop, shedding snow and reducing cardiorespiratory strain by 7%. Rotation Limiter prevents over-rotation.
- Patented Flex Tail technology allows the snowshoe to roll naturally from heel to toe. Flex Tail absorbs shock from heel strike, reducing stress on joints. 3D-Curved Traction Rails ensure superior sidehill grip in hardpack and icy conditions.
- Curved shape helps prevent fore-aft slippage on steeper terrain. 16 degree heel lift is ideal for moderate terrain and makes ascents easier by helping reduce calf fatigue and Achilles tendon strain. Torsion Deck allows torsional articulation throughout the body of the snowshoe, enhancing traction, biomechanics and comfort on uneven terrain.

Our hikes are 3-4 miles in length with quite a bit of off-trail snowshoeing that includes relatively steep climbs and descents in two-three feet of powdery snow. As temperatures have warmed, some of the snow has become crusty and slick on the surface. Small parts of our trips have included packed trails that are becoming somewhat icy.
I purchased these snowshoes after reviewing various other snowshoes on the OutdoorGearLab website. While these were not reviewed, I felt that I had a good idea of what I needed for day hikes, on and off trails. I also used the snowshoe selector tools found on the Tubbs and other snowshoe websites. A few experienced fellow hikers offered suggestions. Finally, I was not prepared to pay more than $200 for snowshoes since I was not sure how I would enjoy the experience due to its physical demands.
Pros for these shoes include:
• Easy on and off due to the Boa closure system bindings that snugly hold your foot in place. Don’t underestimate the convenience of this when the temperatures are in the teens.
• Good traction on packed and icy trails
• Relatively light weight (mostly plastic framing and decking)
• Heel lifts for climbing that make a real difference
• Full-rotation bindings essential for hill climbing
• Steel side-rails for extra traction traversing steep trails
• Good features (bindings and heel lift) for the price
• The 24 inch standard men's length takes away some flotation on powdery snow. It was not unusual to sink close to a foot in 3 foot powder when breaking trail. Other snowshoe sites recommend 25-26 inch lengths for my weight and off-trail use. They cost considerably more in most cases but may be worth the extra expense for extensive back-country off-trail use.
• They pick up snow in wetter conditions, making the shoe considerably heavier
I believe these are great shoes for trail hiking. Off-trail use, while satisfactory so far, is still being evaluated as I head toward new snow conditions. I will update this review at the conclusion of this season.
Update after a full season: I am still very satisfied with these snowshoes. They have held up well and I have found that spraying them with silicon spray helps reduce snow sticking to the shoes. I am always the first person in and out of my shoes because of the Boa system. A larger shoe still might be in my future given the deep powder snow conditions we experienced in the Sangre de Christo mountains this year.
Overall I would buy again.
