Tubbs Wilderness Women's snowshoes are perfect for snowy backcountry day hiking. Durable construction and an array of features combine to make Wilderness Women's snowshoes a versatile option for varied conditions.
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.
Wilderness Women's snowshoes are available in three sizes. Measuring 8" x 21" each, Wilderness Women's-21 inch snowshoes are suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 80-150 pounds. At 8" x 25" per shoe, Wilderness Women's-25 inch snowshoes are suitable for a total weight of 120-200 pounds and Wilderness Women's-30 inch snowshoes (9" x 30" per shoe) are suitable for a total weight of 170-250 pounds.
Wilderness Women's snowshoes utilize a Rotating Toe Cord 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. A Rotation Limiter prevents over rotation. It also maximizes crampon penetration in the snow base, ensuring efficient control and balance. The rotation also enables the tail of Wilderness Women's snowshoes 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 180Pro bindings provide maximum support for your boot and a locking strap secures your heel in place. Contoured, padded uppers provide pressure-free comfort and added warmth. The binding bases are fully adjustable to accommodate varied boot widths.
The frame of each Wilderness Women's snowshoe is constructed of durable 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, making Wilderness snowshoes extremely maneuverable. A built-in ActiveLift heel lifter lessens the distance that the bottom of your boot travels from the snowshoe deck during uphill climbs and, in turn, reduces fatigue.
The SoftTec decking material of Wilderness Women's snowshoes provides durable, lightweight 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.
Wilderness Women's snowshoes are outfitted with the Cobra crampon system. Helping to maintain constant, dependable traction in snow and on ice, the system consists of carbon steel toe/ball of the foot crampons and stainless-steel crampons fixed centrally beneath your boot heel. Together, the crampons provide constant, dependable traction.
