Ideal for first-time or cost-conscious snowshoers, Atlas Elektra 8 Series Women's snowshoes provide comfort and performance at a budget-friendly price. Durable construction and ergonomic features make the shoes a great option for winter walking.
Atlas undertook a two-year biomechanics research program to develop design features that directly addressed the unique needs of women. Elektra frames incorporate tapered tails, narrower noses and outside rolling bends that properly accommodate a woman's natural gait. Bindings are molded around a women's boot last, offer increased arch support and use strategic strap placement and padding to eliminate pressure points and encourage circulation.
Elektra 8 Series Women's snowshoes are available in two sizes. The 23 inch length is suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 80-160 pounds. The recommended use range for the larger 27 inch shoe is 120-200+ pounds.
Supporting natural articulation and cushioning each step, Atlas' Free-Rotating Suspension (FRS) minimizes resistance and offers excellent freedom of movement. By allowing a wide range of motion, Elektra 8 Series Women's snowshoes deliver comfort and traction for flat or rolling terrain. Easy-to-use Strapp bindings have a simple "one-pull" design that quickly and comfortably secures your feet in place.
The 6061 aluminum V-frames deliver an efficient, natural stride. By tracking straight in deep snow and pulling less snow as you step forward, the noses and tapered tails of Elektra 8 Series Women’s snowshoes save you energy. Providing lightweight durability, flexible Nytex decking optimizes flotation. NOTE: A minimum base of 6"-8" of snow is suggested for usage in order to properly protect the integrity of the decking material.
Stainless steel Twin-Trac toe crampons employ a sturdy row of front points and side teeth to keep your foot from twisting. By providing sure footing on two planes, Elektra 8 Series Women’s snowshoes help maintain a straight and natural gait. Rear Tri-Cleats offer further traction support.
Atlas Elektra 8 Series Women's snowshoes are sold in pairs.
