The PowdeRidge Crest Women's 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 Crest Women's snowshoes, a pair of lightweight, adjustable snowshoe poles and a snowshoe carry pack.
A great balance of performance and price, the affordable PowdeRidge Crest Women's snowshoe is designed for winter day hiking. Easy-to-use bindings and durable construction make it a value-packed snowshoe option.
The kit is available in two offerings, each with a different sized pair of snowshoes. The pair of snowshoes in the Crest Women's Snowshoe Starter Kit-21 inch measures 8" x 21" and is suitable for a total weight of 80-150 pounds (includes weight of user and gear). At 8" x 25" per shoe, the snowshoes in the Crest Women's Snowshoe Starter Kit-25 inch support a total weight of 120-200 pounds.
Double ratchet straps lend security and adjustability to the binding of the Crest Women's snowshoe. A nylon heel strap provides further support and enhances fit. Full adjustability allows the Crest Women's binding to accommodate a wide range of styles and sizes of footwear.
A rotating toe cord system enables the tail of the Crest 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.
Constructed of durable 6000 series aluminum, the frame of the Crest Women's snowshoe is tapered to enhance balance, provide flotation and maintain a natural stride pattern. The carbon steel toe crampon and a built-in heel cleat combine to deliver solid traction on rolling terrain and descents. Durable material on the decking further improves 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 pair of lightweight, 2-part adjustable 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.
The PowdeRidge Crest Women's Snowshoe Starter Kit also includes a snowshoe carry pack for easy stow-and-go convenience.
Likes: Really easy to use and secure binding system. Nice combination of colors. The adjustable poles included with this kit are hiking poles that come with a "powder" tip that is removable so this is a bonus as they are hiking and snowshoeing poles. Over all quality is very good for a inexpensive beginner's kit.
Dislikes: It is only my opinion but the metal traction and brake cleats do not seem very substantial.
