The Atlas Spring-Loaded Suspension (SLS) patented design suspends the snowshoe close underfoot so it can move freely with its intended articulation, absorbing impact, flexing naturally side-to-side, and allowing deeper crampon penetration into the slope. The Atlas Free-Rotating Suspension (FRS) suspends your foot so it can move freely, absorb impact and let your foot flex naturally side-to-side-perfect for the fast stride of a fitness snowshoer.
Updated for 2013! Equipped with aggressive traction, secure and stable bindings and sturdy 7075 aluminum frames, Atlas 12 Series snowshoes are built for demanding winter conditions. An array of performance features make 12 Series snowshoes ideal for top-of-the-mountain adventures or extended winter backpacking.
Accommodating users of varied sizes, 12 Series snowshoes are available in three sizes. The 25 inch length is suitable for a total weight (user and gear) of 120-200 pounds, the 30 inch length supports 150-250 pounds and the recommended use range for the larger 35 inch shoe is 180-300+ pounds.
Patented impact-absorbing Spring-Loaded Suspensions (SLS) keep 12 Series snowshoes close underfoot while suspending your feet so they can move freely to adjust to terrain and slope changes. By allowing your feet to flex naturally, 12 Series snowshoes improve stability and balance while providing deep crampon penetration for maximum traction. WRAPP Pro bindings have supportive arches that cradle the inside of your feet to keep you comfortable even during long, challenging days in the backcountry. Silicone FlowTape straps glide through low-friction buckles to make use easy even with gloved hands. A heel strap adjusts easily to ensure a secure and proper fit.
Stainless steel Zodiac toe crampons provide deeply-penetrating traction. Wider tabs at the sides and corners of the crampons complement sharp front and rear points in providing confident footing. Rear stainless steel Stabilock traction systems aid in weight distribution and enhance footing even on technical terrain.
Rugged 7075 aluminum Reactiv V-frames deliver an efficient, natural stride. By tracking straight in deep snow and pulling less snow as you step forward, the nose and tapered tail of 12 Series snowshoes save you energy. Built-in Heel Lift Bars lessen the distance that the bottoms of your boots travel from the snowshoe decks during climbs. This feature greatly improves performance on steep slopes and helps to reduce the fatigue associated with elevation gains.
Duratek deckings provide durability and optimize 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.
