  • Features

    • Dual-component PosiLock AT bindings offer secure attachment; aggressive steel cross-members and Ergo Televator heel lifts back you up with every step
    • 2-piece, independently conforming PosiLock AT bindings create a secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear
    • 360 Traction frames offer edge-to-edge grip; the split teeth of Torsion2 crampons distribute forces for continuous contact—delivering traction on any terrain
    • Add-on modular flotation tails (sold separately) allow you the maneuverability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the added, on-demand flotation of optional, 5-in. tails
    • Add-on modular tails increase flotation for hikers up to 250 lbs. on 22 in. snowshoes, up to 280 lbs. on 25 in. snowshoes and up to 300 lbs. on 30 in. snowshoes
    • Ergo Televator heel lifts reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps with an ergonomic design that engages with a simple flick of a pole grip
