This model is designed and biomechanically engineered specifically for the natural stride of women via the Atlas Elektra frame which has a more narrow and tapered geometry, ideally facilitating a woman's stride.
For the 2014 snowshoeing season Atlas Snowshoes improves on previous versions of the Atlas Elektra 12 women's snowshoes with advancements that include a stiffer and more responsive ReactiV 7075 aluminum frame that easily handles any backcountry expedition terrain from one extreme to the other; powdery-soft conditions to crud and icy-steep mountain inclines. You'll be amazed at the Atlas Elektra E12 snowshoe's combination of strength and feather lite flotation. The new frame geometry causes the snowshoe to track perfectly straight with little or no stepping on the inside rails. Molded specifically for the right and left foot, the Wrapp Pro snowshoe bindings also include flexible arch supports that provide both a custom fit for your feet and ultimate control and snowhoe handling.
The women's Atlas Elektra 12 is engineered with Spring-Loaded Suspension which determines the ideal amount of engagement of the sharp crampon prongs and traction rails under your feet to allow for completely natural foot movement and ensures you stay on track in all terrain and conditions. Quickly flip up the heel lift bar on the fly for much easier climbing when hitting the steeps. In short, the Atlas Elektra E12 woman snowshoes are the ultimate backcountry tool allowing you to overcome any winter obstacle the fiercest backcountry elements can throw at you.
Atlas Elektra 12 Woman Snow Shoes Features & Benefits:
Woman-Specific ReactiV™ 7075 Aluminum Frame - The variable forming lends increased stiffness and yields a more responsive suspension. Biomechanically engineered specifically for the natural stride of women via the Atlas Elektra frame which has a more narrow and tapered geometry, ideally facilitating a woman's stride. 7075 aluminum is the lightest strongest tubing available.
Spring-Loaded™ Suspension (SLS) - Suspension allows natural articulation of the foot and deeper crampon penetration for unmatched control and comfort.
Woman-Specific Wrapp™ Pro Bindings - Specifically molded right and left bindings have flexible arches that cradle and support the inside of your feet for a comfortable and secure fit. Floating tongue indexes on buckle fingers for a perfect fit. Easiest on/off provided by new FlowTape Silicone straps that glide through new aluminum low friction buckles. Bindings are lightweight and foam padded for increased comfort and warmth.
Stainless Steel Holey-1 Toe Crampon - 3D-formed design allows lighter weight and structural strength. Shovel-like prongs provide increased grip and hold, and sharp end-points provide bite on the iciest of slopes.
Stainless Steel Advanced Aft Traction - Parallel traction rails under the sides of your feet — where you get the most control — provide increased traction while traversing and also when going downhill.
Heel lift Bar - When engaged, bar relieves calf muscle fatigue while ascending steep slopes. Bar stores flat when disengaged.
Duratek Decking - Durable, lightweight and stronger than Nytex.
