With a streamlined frame and a weight 2 pounds, 14 ounces per pair, the Crescent Moon Gold 12 snowshoe is built for fast and efficient performance on snow and ice. Designed for winter running, fitness training and racing, the Gold 12 snowshoe is "race-approved" for runners of all shapes and sizes.
Reflecting a commitment to environmentally-responsible manufacturing, Crescent Moon does not use any PVC in its snowshoes. Crescent Moon snowshoes are manufactured in the U.S. through the use of 100% wind power and at least 95% of all scrap and waste materials are recycled.
The Gold 12 snowshoe features a lightweight “race binding” that provides excellent ankle and foot support. Adjustment of the binding straps is performed with a simple pull on the single adjustment loop. The binding has adjustability to accommodate running shoes or lightweight boots.
To ensure optimal flotation, the Gold 12 snowshoe is balanced to distribute your body weight across the entire shoe. This design also makes them easier to pull out of the snow, so you don't have to work as hard to run, hike or climb. The modified teardrop shaped platform is based on the shape of your foot, wide at the ball and narrow at the heel. Instead of forcing you to waddle, the ergonomic design helps your feet clear away from each other with every step, ensuring a smooth, natural stride and allowing you to concentrate on your workout or race.
The frame of the Gold 12 snowshoe is made from lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum tubing, which is shaped by hand and welded for incredible strength, durability and reliability. A durable powder-coat finish offers excellent protection from the elements, reduces ice build-up and enhances the aesthetics of the shoes. The decking is made from an ultra durable, lightweight material called TGS. It is extremely resistant to abrasion and textured for additional traction and performance.
The Gold 12 snowshoe employs Crescent Moon's three-claw crampon traction system, providing optimal grip. Inherently better than standard two-crampon systems, the three-claw system features a genuine toe claw. As you run, you use your whole foot, shifting your weight for balance and traction with each step. The lightweight aluminum teeth and claws dig in not only at the heel and ball of your foot, but also at the toe, giving you complete control.
Sold in pairs, the Crescent Moon Gold 12 snowshoe is recommended for runners of all shapes and sizes.
