Atlas Aspect 24 -
Atlas Snowshoes built this snowshoe for serious travelers and snowboarders.
Venture into the backcountry with complete confidence in the revolutionary Aspect's tenacious, confident footing.
ReactiV-Trac construction features aggressive saw-toothed perimeter traction for deep purchase, while its integrated elliptical nose facilitates the comfortable articulation of Spring-Loaded Suspension.
Unsurpassed fore and aft traction allows you to independently engage the snow directly underfoot, no matter how rough the terrain.
A new heel lift eases calf fatigue on steep ascents, and the streamlined Infinity Decking maximizes surface area in a unique, low-profile attachment.
Easy to stow, the Aspect snowshoe features a shallower nose angle and the PackFlat binding accommodates larger snowboard or mountaineering boots.
In lightweight, packable 24" and 28" lengths, the Aspect is a reliable addition to any mountaineer, ice climber or backcountry snowboarder's kit for going deep and getting home safe.
This unisex snowshoe is guaranteed to redefine the backcountry classic.
A powder hound with absolute powder, the Atlas Aspect 24 will get you through the thick and think with less effort.
- ReactiV-Trac construction integrates the classic flex of an elliptically-formed nose with the perimeter traction of a serrated t-frame. Stout SLS straps flex the system's tubular nose allowing the binding, crampon, and frame to conform and articulate independently with the terrain, providing unparalleled performance and the most confident footing available.
- Robust nylon decks are integrated inside frames in a unique, seamless design that maximizes surface area while resisting abrasion
- Durable frames are crafted from sturdy aluminum to create a stiff yet lightweight chassis
- Infinity decking integrates with the frame to protect the deck from abrasion, provide optimum flotation, and eliminate frame wrap in a sleek, seamless design
- Spring-Loaded™ Suspension (SLS) uses offset webbing straps to create a springy platform beneath your feet that absorbs impact and allows natural side-to-side foot flex
Traction and Grip:
- Spring-Loaded Suspension (SLS) keeps the snowshoe close underfoot for easy maneuvering and suspends your foot so it can move freely with its intended articulation. The suspension absorbs impact and lets your foot flex naturally side-to-side for a comfortable, stable position on traverses and uneven terrain. SLS enhances traction control too, as the flex provides deeper crampon penetration into the slope, especially on steep or off-angle terrain.
- Aggressive saw-toothed perimeter traction combines with independently sprung Holey-1 Toe Crampons to provide superior traction
- Holey-1 Toe Crampon is Atlas' top-end traction and uses shovel-shaped stainless steel prongs for better hold and sharp ice tips for superior bite on frozen slopes
- Heel Lift Bar helps ease fatigue and ties directly into Advanced Aft Traction for grip
- Heel-lift bar provides relief for tired calf muscles on steep ascents and match slope angle for improved traction
- Atlas BC Utility Strap is included with all Atlas Backcountry Adventure snowshoes and can be used to secure your snowshoes to your pack, lash together other gear, or carry as an backup strap for the field-replaceable PackFlat Binding or any other emergency situation
- PackFlat Binding is designed for backcountry snowboarding and climbing, and features quick-lashing urethane straps that are fully field-replaceable with the included BC Utility Strap. Able to accommodate bigger snowboard boots, the bindings collapse flat for easy storage in your pack.
- On steep climbs, the heel lift bar reduces calf fatigue while allowing the heel crampon to remain active
- Atlas Aspect 24 snowshoes' recommended load specification is for weight of hiker with gear
- Nose and tail shapes are optimized to provide a balanced platform for stable footing and to facilitate an easy, natural stride
It'll all be worth the trek once you get to the top. Let the Atlas Aspect 24 help you along the way!
7075 Aluminum ReactiV™ Frame- This revolutionary frame changes from a cylindrical to an elliptical shape to increase strength where the frame bears the greatest loads for a stiffer, more responsive snowshoe frame.
Spring-Loaded™ Suspension (SLS) - This active suspension system is designed for optimal articulation and superior maneuverability in rough terrain. With trademark durability and the ability to flex and conform across any uneven snow, SLS keeps the snow close underfoot for precise placement on rugged terrain. Where it's for dedicated backcountry users on off-trail exploration or a running enthusiast flying down the trail, the SLS offers superior performance for extremely technical terrain.

On steep climbs, calf muscles tire quickly and traction decreases when the foot matches the slope angle. The Heel Lift Bar eases fatigue and ties directly into the advanced aft traction feature for grip.
Infinity Decking - Optimize surface area while also protecting the deck from abrasion Infinity Decking integrates the deck below and inside the frame with a unique construction that eliminates frame wrap in a sleek, seamless design.
