Accommodating bigger loads than its little brother, the award-winning FLEX ALP 24, the Tubbs FLEX ALP XL 28 has increased flotation but features the same celebrated ergonomic comfort, traction and built-in climbing-enhancing heel lifters.
The FLEX ALP XL 28's molded Torsion Deck increases articulation throughout the body of the shoe, allowing it to truly flex with your stride to enhance both traction and maneuverability. The use of "cutaways", a narrow, tapered profile and thinner material at either end of the shoes keeps weight to a minimum while maintaining flotation. The unique Tubbs FLEX Tail absorbs the shock of heel strikes, reducing stress on your joints and further enabling you to maintain a natural, comfortable stride.
Asymmetric ActiveFLEX bindings provide maximum support for your boot, securely locking the heel in place. The base is fully adjustable to accommodate varying footwear up to Men's size 13 boots. A built-in ActiveLift heel lifter lessens the distance that the bottom of your boot travels from the deck of the FLEX ALP XL 28 shoe during climbs. This design improves performance on steep slopes and helps to reduce the fatigue associated with elevation gains.
FLEX ALP XL 28 snowshoes are outfitted with Viper 2.0 carbon steel toe crampons for maximum traction and responsiveness. In addition, micro-serrated 3D curved Traction Rails and tail traction further enhance traction and deliver superior grip for uphill climbs and side-hill traverses. Rear Snow Brakes help to prevent slipping and provide confident downhill traction.
Sold in pairs, Tubbs FLEX ALP XL 28 snowshoes are suitable for all weights in packed snow. NOTE: In powdery conditions FLEX ALP XL 28 shoes are best used for a maximum weight of 220 pounds (includes gear and user).
