Providing maneuverability, flotation and traction, the Easton Artica Men's Hike snowshoe delivers on-trail performance and versatility for use in light off-trail powder or packed snow.
Constructed of a USA-built 7075 aerospace alloy, the Artica Men's Hike's two-piece articulating frame flexes when in use to help maintain a natural stride and absorb some of the stress that is transferred to your ankles, knees and hips by more traditional snowshoes. Further ensuring a natural stride, a Virtual Pivot Traction Cam provides independently pivoting arms that deliver positive footing. Quick-Cinch bindings offer adjustability for a wide range of footwear, including sneakers, hikers or snow boots. The pull-and-go mechanism is easy-to-use and safely secures footwear in place.
With a two-pronged design, the split-axis stainless steel toe crampons found on Artica Men's Hike snowshoes adjust with each to step to provide enhanced traction. Aggressive heel teeth further increase traction. Delivering non-slip traction, BlizTrac 3-Dimensioinal Decking is lightweight, flexible, durable and both abrasion and puncture resistant (NOTE: A minimum base of 6"-8" of snow is suggested for usage in order to properly protect the integrity of the decking material.).
Sold in pairs, Easton Artica Men's Hike snowshoes are available in three sizes. The 21 inch size is suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of up to 120 pounds. The 25 inch snowshoes support a weight of 120-180 pounds and the 30 inch shoes accommodate a total weight over 180 pounds.
