The Tubbs Xplore 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 Xplore snowshoes, a pair of lightweight, adjustable snowshoe poles and a pair of protective leg gaiters.
The kit is available in two offerings, each with a different sized pair of snowshoes. The pair of snowshoes in the Xplore Snowshoe Starter Kit-25 inch is suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 120-200 pounds. The pair of snowshoes in the Xplore Snowshoe Starter Kit-30 inch is suitable for a total weight of 170-250 pounds.
The Xplore snowshoe utilizes the easy-to-use Tubbs QuickPull binding. Rigid Control Wings found on both the medial and lateral sides of the binding keep your boot centered in the harness for maximum responsiveness. A single one buckle push releases your foot from the binding. Rotating flexibility in the integrated toe cord allows your boot to pivot independently of the frame of the Xplore snowshoe, maximizing the 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 Fit-Step frame of each Xplore 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 Xplore 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.). The Xplore snowshoe is outfitted with carbon steel toe and heel crampons that provide constant, dependable traction whether you're moving in an uphill, downhill or side hill direction.
The pair of lightweight, 2-part adjustable (41"-51"), 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.
Water resistant, breathable nylon leg gaiters allow you to enjoy your outdoor experience by keeping snow and moisture from finding their way into your boots. Stay dry all day long!
