The PowdeRidge Crest Snowshoe Starter Kit has everything you need to get started in the growing sport of snowshoeing. Available in two sizes, the kit includes a pair of Crest snowshoes, a pair of lightweight, adjustable snowshoe poles and a snowshoe carry pack.
A great balance of performance and price, the affordable PowdeRidge Crest snowshoe is designed for winter day hiking. Easy-to-use bindings and durable construction make the Crest a value-packed snowshoe option.
The kit is available in two offerings, each with a different sized pair of snowshoes. The pair of snowshoes in the Crest Snowshoe Starter Kit-25 inch measures 8" x 25" and is suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 120-200 pounds (includes weight of user and gear). At 9" x 30" per shoe, the snowshoes in the Crest Snowshoe Starter Kit-30 inch support a total weight of 170-250 pounds.
Double ratchet straps lend security and adjustability to the Crest's binding. A nylon heel strap provides further support and enhances fit. Full adjustability allows the Crest to accommodate a wide range of styles and sizes of footwear.
A rotating toe cord system enables the tail of the Crest to drop away from the binding as you hike, effectively shedding snow, reducing resistance and minimizing the fatigue associated with carrying the unnecessary weight of clinging snow.
Constructed of durable 6000 series aluminum, the frame of the Crest snowshoe is tapered to enhance balance, provide flotation and maintain a natural stride pattern. The carbon steel toe crampon and a built-in heel cleat combine to deliver solid traction on rolling terrain and descents. Durable material on the decking further improves 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.
The pair of lightweight, 2-part adjustable aluminum snowshoe poles lends security and stability on any and all types of terrain. By incorporating arm movements into your snowshoeing activities, you can turn your adventure into a total body fitness workout. The poles also include powder baskets and nylon web straps.
The PowdeRidge Crest Snowshoe Starter Kit also includes a snowshoe carry pack for easy stow-and-go convenience.
