Atlas Elektra E827 Trail Walking Snowshoe -
The Elektra 8 Series offer Atlas performance mainstays at the best value. The Elektra 8 Series snowshoes use the no-fuss, no-hassle, Strapp binding, with excellent arch support, women's-specific lasts, and Uniloop pull, all in a minimalist form. Deeper crampon penetration and the security of tempered steel heel cleats ensure confident steps. Forgiving Nytex decking and the proven aluminum V-frames offer superior durability no matter the conditions. Because the biomechanical differences between a man’s stride and a woman’s are just as important for beginners as they are for experts, the new Elektra 8 Series features our proprietary Elektra frame designed for a woman’s narrower stance.
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.
