  • Sale
  • Regular price $ 289.95


Ultralight and aggressive performance engineered for a narrow gait.

What began as a solution for women has become the top choice of anyone with a narrow gait, or those seeking the lightest possible alternative in this aggressive snowshoe. We engineered our Women’s 360° Traction frames in conjunction with a renowned expert in athletic biomechanics, resulting in a lower-profile frame that saves weight and improves agility with narrow gaits. Paired with our PosiLock AT bindings to create our most secure attachment, new tougher decking, and the easily engaged Ergo Televators, they’ll back you up with every step.

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and split teeth of Torsion2 crampons better distribute forces for more continuous contact—delivering unmatched traction on any terrain, in any conditions.
  • Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming Women’s PosiLock AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment for smaller footwear.
  • All-Condition Adaptability: Modular Flotation tails allow you the maneuverability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the added, on-demand flotation of optional, 5-inch (13-cm) tails.
  • Uphill Efficiency: Ergo Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps with an ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.
  • Low-Profile: Narrow frames are ideal for women, those with a narrow gait, or anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible.
