Built for all-terrain performance in challenging winter conditions, the Tubbs Mountaineer Women's snowshoe can tackle steep ascents and technical winter hiking. Cutting-edge bindings, rugged construction and high performance features make the Mountaineer Women's snowshoe comfortable to wear and durable against wear and tear.
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.
The Mountaineer Women's snowshoe is available in three sizes. Measuring 8" x 21", the Mountaineer Women's-21 inch snowshoe is suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 80-150 pounds. At 8" x 25" per shoe, the Mountaineer Women's-25 inch is suitable for a total weight of 120-200 pounds while the 30 inch length (9" x 30") supports a total weight of 170-250 pounds.
The Mountaineer Women's snowshoe utilizes innovative Revolution Response II (RII) articulation to deliver comfort and maneuverability. This design provides shock-absorbing lateral flex, ensuring that your foot remains in a natural position even when you tackle side slope traverses. It also maximizes crampon penetration in the snow base, ensuring efficient control and balance. The rotation also enables the tail of the Mountaineer Women's snowshoe 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 bases of the asymmetric ActiveFit bindings provide maximum support for your boot, securely locking the heel in place. The base is fully adjustable to accommodate varied boot widths.
The Pro-Step frame of each Mountaineer Women's snowshoe is constructed of durable 6000 Series aluminum. A continuous frame bend with longer and lower rise has excellent ergonomics and flotation. The bend of the tail reduces impact on your joints. Together, these ergonomic features allow you to maintain your normal walking stride, making the Mountaineer Women's snowshoe extremely maneuverable. A built-in ActiveLift heel lifter lessens the distance that the bottom of your boot travels from the snowshoe deck during climbs. This design improves performance on steep slopes and helps to reduce the fatigue associated with elevation gains.
Extremely durable, the ArcTec Plus decking material is performance tested to be effective even in temperatures as low as 40 degrees below 0 Fahrenheit. 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 Mountaineer Women's snowshoe is outfitted with the high performance Tubbs Anaconda/Python crampon system to maintain control and balance in snow and on ice. A carbon steel crampon located under the ball of the foot employs aggressive teeth to provide optimal traction. Razor-sharp teeth in the toe serve as brakes and enhance performance during climbing and traversing. A stainless-steel heel crampon fixed centrally beneath your boot provides the Mountaineer Women's snowshoe with constant, dependable traction.
The Tubbs Mountaineer Women's snowshoe is sold in pairs.
