Affordable and durable Tubbs Frontier Women's snowshoes are ready-made for winter day hikers and recreational snowshoe users. Easy-to-use bindings, functional design and durable materials provide excellent value for snowshoe enthusiasts.
Tubbs was the first manufacturer to offer snowshoes designed specifically for women, introducing women's specific bindings in 1998. Anatomic and ergonomic adjustments are made to each binding to provide the female snowshoe enthusiast with the fit, comfort and performance she deserves. Accounting for the fact that, on average, women have a shorter walking stride than men, Tubbs has tapered the tail on women's specific models to be narrower than the tails found on men's snowshoes, allowing the user to maintain a more natural stride.
Frontier Women's snowshoes are available in three sizes. Measuring 8" x 21" each, Frontier Women's-21 inch snowshoes are suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 120-200 pounds. At 8" x 25" per shoe, Frontier Women's-25 inch snowshoes are suitable for a total weight of 120-200 pounds and Frontier Women's-30 inch snowshoes (9" x 30" per shoe) are suitable for a total weight of 170-250 pounds.
Comfort and maneuverability are key elements of winter performance and Tubbs tackles both concerns with the design of the bindings used in their snowshoes. The Tubbs 180EZ binding is built on a fully-rotating toe cord. A single buckle makes it quick and uncomplicated to slip on the snowshoes and get out into the snow. An easy-to-use urethane heel strap provides additional support. The rotating flexibility of the toe cord allows your boot to pivot independently of the frame of the Frontier Women's snowshoe, maximizing penetration of the crampon in the snow base. The rotation also enables the tail 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.
The tapered frame of each Frontier Women's snowshoe is constructed of sturdy 6000 series aluminum. The tapered tail and technical rise of the nose of the frame enhance balance and provide excellent flotation. These ergonomic features allow you to maintain your normal walking stride, increasing the maneuverability of the Frontier Women's snowshoe.
Durable, lightweight and waterproof, SoftTec Decking provides dependable 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).
Carbon steel toe and heel crampons with front and rear braking teeth provide Frontier Women's snowshoes with constant and dependable traction whether you're moving in an uphill, downhill or side hill direction.
