Atlas Elektra E1227 Hiking Snowshoe -
The Atlas Elektra 12 Series snowshoes are designed to handle anything you find between the trailhead and the summit. The women's Wrapp Pro bindings feature FlowTape silicone straps that glide through low-friction buckles with a smooth buckle release for easy on-off use. The 7075 aluminum frame is the lightest, strongest tubing available, and the variable ReactiV forming lends a stiffer, more responsive flex. Extensive biomechanics research led to the development of the Elektra women's frame, with outside rolling bends, a narrower waist, and a tapered tail that refuse to compromise on a women's natural stance and gait. Spring-Loaded Suspension provides deeper penetration of the Holey-1 Toe Crampon, and the Advanced Aft Traction provides sure footing on all terrain.
Traction and Grip:
- An Atlas tenet from the beginning, Atlas' patented 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.
