Atlas 925 Snowshoes -

The Atlas 925 snowshoes provide good traction and flotation across rolling terrain and groomed trails, making them great for beginning and experienced snowshoers alike.

Imported.

Fabric:

  • Abrasion-resistant, lightweight Nytex™ nylon decks stay flexible when cold and stand up to the elements for lasting use

Fit:

  • Wrapp™ Trail bindings use a continuous webbing design that tightens snugly with a single pull; bindings also cradle feet and arches for a secure, comfortable fit

Frame:

  • Aluminum V-frame produces an efficient, natural stride
  • Durable frames are crafted from 6061 aluminum to create a stiff yet lightweight chassis

Weather and Wind:

  • The result of the design is that freedom of movement is increased, the toe crampon can bite into snow better and the foot is allowed a more natural rotation
  • V-shape tracks straight in deep snow
  • Increased rotation of the snowshoe lets the nose float easily over new snow
  • Flexible Nytex decking is forgiving and quiet when hiking in the cold, providing durability without the weight
  • Tapered tail pulls less snow as you step forward, saving your energy

Traction and Grip:

  • Tri-cleat of tempered steel provides traction under the heel in any direction
  • Steel toe crampons supply sure-footed traction on icy and snowy terrain; heel crampons increase traction while traversing and descending

Suspension:

  • Free-Rotating™ Suspension lets the binding rotate much farther forward than previous Atlas designs, freeing up the stride and reducing the amount of tail flip
  • Free-Rotating Suspension allows the foot to rest naturally while the deck conforms to the terrain

Features:

  • One pull on the binding handle snugs the entire binding around your instep, toe and heel
  • Recommended load specification for the Atlas 925 snowshoes includes weight of hiker with gear
  • Nose and tail shapes are optimized to provide a balanced platform for stable footing and facilitate an easy, natural stride
  • Integrated forward limiter prevents over-rotation of the snowshoe and painful shin-bang
  • Turned-up tail rolls easily into each step for a natural gait

My first snowshoe

Keep in mind, I'd only rented snow shoes once prior to purchasing these, so I don't have much experience with snow shoes.

Since my purchase, I've gone on two (5-7) mile hikes in these and am very happy with their performance. They are lightweight, and the ability of the binding to rotate seems to really help when traversing uneven terrain.

I find them very easy to get on, but I always seem to have trouble getting them off quickly.

Two features that I'd like to try that these do not have:
1) the flip up bar towards the heel to assist with long uphill climbs. After summiting a few peaks, I can see how that would be helpful
2) a spring binding that keeps the tail end up when you step to make stepping over obstacles and backing up easier. - I got into an area on our second hike with some fallen trees in about 4 ft of snow and it was tricky to navigate with the tail end flopping around.

I went with the smallest size for my height and weight (6'2" - 175) as I don't see myself backpacking through the snow anytime soon. Only once or twice is some really deep, fresh snow, did I feel like a larger shoe would have been nice.

Not worth the price

Bought these to upgrade from some Yukon Charlies and guy at REI store they were as good as MSRs- so tried them out. Shoes were easy to put on, but echo the comment of others that the bindings stiffen up when they get ice on them and hard to release. They didn't have as much bite as the YCs (and not even close to MSRs) and with a different shape of the cleat found that I almost tripped once or twice walking up hill with them (hasn't happened with other types I'm used). Quality of the shoe appeared a bit better than the YCs, but otherwise disappointed and returned them.
