Description

Innovative design for outdoor adventure.

Atlas made the 10 Series Snowshoes to give your feet maximum control and comfort as you explore winter's wonderland. Forget feeling like you've just tied on two awkward, unwieldy planks. Atlas’ Spring-Loaded Suspension allows your foot to maintain a natural position as you step over varied terrain, and the aluminum frame and V shape make this snowshoe durable, lightweight, and easy to manage. The Nytex decking flexes even when temps approach freezing, and Traverse Trac Rails under the sides of your feet, as well as toe crampons and heel cleats, give you grippy traction every step of the way.

I weigh around 150lbs without very lite gear/jacket and will probably use snowshoes for day hikes on both groomed and new snow. What size would you recommend?? Thanks.

The 25 inch should be prime. Convenient..cause that's the only size available at the moment.

I fluctuate in weight from about 116-125 lbs. What size should I get?
Thanks

Responded on

the 25 inch size would be perfect. Your only talking about 9 lbs which it not that much and the recommended weight on the 25in is 120-200 pounds. You'll be just fine.

Great Snowshoe

I weigh 180 lbs so I bought the 10-30's for when I need to carry a pack and I love them. I think they work great for trails but they also perform very well when you go off trail. The SLS strap under the ball of the foot also provide a very comfortable platform allowing you to put the miles on. I would recommend these as a great all around snowshoe.

I'm 6 1 and 180 with no pack. Plan to do only day outings. What size would work for me? Thanks

Responded on

I would go with the 25"er. This will give you all the float you'll need.I think it should be stated that 25 inch snowshoes are very bad for a 180 pound person breaking trail. If you are coordinated and physically capable of breaking trail, I would recommend 30 inch snowshoes mimimum. I am 6' 1 and weigh 165. I use 25 inch snowshoes for firm conditions and 36 inch snowshoes for trail breaking. Personally, I wish there were bigger high tech snowshoes available. I see gv has a 12x42, but haven't seen a picture to know if the binding sits in the middle for a well balanced snowshoe, which I think is important when you want flotation, but I digress.

Nearly flawless

I'm 6'4", 230 lbs so I had to get the 35's and they work very well. I haven't gone on a backpacking trip in them yet but on one day excursions, they perform perfectly. They are very easy to put on and take off and the strapping system is very easy to use even with gloves on. They are lightweight enough to not become a nuisance and they remain flexible even after a day-long outing. Perhaps the only downside, and maybe it's because I have size 15 feet, is that bulky or very wide boots do not fit too well in the bindings therefore snowboard boots or very bulky winter boots may not work.

I am usually a skier, however, after a tumble last week I have damaged knee ligaments. As soon as my doctor says I can get out and about again I want to try snowshoes (I will use them mainly to get up the sides of pistes to watch my kids race). I am 5'3' and 120lbs and the reviews on these snowshoes looked interesting. For people with knee problems is there any binding system (fixed/pivot) better than another? I thought I'd need a hiking snowshoe for ladies. Is this the one?

Responded on

Sorry to hear about the knee! Since I started snowshoeing my skis have been collecting dusts. Well based on your height/weight I would highly recommend the Atlas E10 Series Elektra snowshoe for women perfect for varied terrain small enough not further aggravate the knee, good thing is snowshoeing is a low impact sport and use your ski poles for support and to help relieve some of the strain on the knees. Another good option is the women’s MSR Lightning which may have a little more traction for climbing ski slopes. Btw CW-X Stabilyx tights offer great support to the lower body and knee joints. HEAL FAST.Also, the Atlas shoes have a silicon band that is supposed to releive fatigue and provide some cushioning. My girlfriend has sensitive knees and she loves her Elektras.

What kind of boots can you use on snow shoes?

Responded on

Snowshoes bindings are designed to fit most types of shoes including hiking boots, hiking shoes, winter boots, mountaineering boots and even trail shoes. Depending on the conditions and terrain it really comes down to personal preference.Snowboarding boots tend to be too big for most snowshoe bindings. Plus you probably want something light.I think it really comes down to your shoe size. If you have large feet (size 15) like I do, you have to make sure you wear boots that are are not too wide and cumbersome or they won't fit. Personally, I use a pair of Solomon winter boots and they work great. If you have smaller or more normal sized feet, you could probably get away with almost any kind of boot except snowboarding boots.

My wife and I are novice snowshoers. We are buying our first pairs. My wife is 5'7, 240lbs. I am 5'8, 185lbs. We trail hike and backcountry. What snowshoes should we look for?

Responded on

I'd suggest a 30" shoe for the both of you if you plan on leaving packed trails. I really like the Atlas 1230s that I have. The women's version is called the Elektra.

I'm a 5'10" man, around 200lbs; trying to get to 180lbs - hopefully the snowshoes will help. I'm looking at your Atlas 10 snowshoe. Given my size/weight (61 yrs old), would you recommend the 25in. or the 30in.

Responded on

I'd go with the 30 inch. I'm 180 lbs and they are a great length for me. They help you stay more lofty in the deep fluff than the 25s would.(Eric) I just thought I'd add a note on snowshoe length. I am 6'3" 180lbs and I use the 30" snowshoes. Hiking up Mount Odake in northern Japan, I noticed most of the Japanese hikers wearing 22"-25" snowshoes. I really noticed the difference coming down the steep descent. My descent was rather slow and awkward with the backs of my snowshoes catching on every step while they were prancing around like gazelles. I'm just saying that bigger is not necessarily better...especially on very steep terrain.

Love Them

I have used these for a season and change now. I am 6'2" and about 200 lbs and the 30 inchers work fine for me. I have used them on an overnight backpack/snowshoe/snow caving trip and they kept me afloat pretty well. I think the 35's would have been a little more supportive of my weight and pack, but these are what I have and they did the job. I use them mainly for getting out and enjoying the Utah snow for a day. Bindings are awesome; I have no trouble staying in them. They can be a bit tricky getting of when your hands are cold and they are snowy but besides that I have no complaint.

do they fitt well on standard snowboard boots

Responded on

No, they don't. Snowboard boots are too large for the tight quarters of the binding. The best types of bindings for snowboard boots are those with stretchy Voile-type strap that will wrap around the boots. These types of bindings fit a far greater array of boots, foot sizes, etc. An example would be the MSR Evo Ascents. The MSRs also offer better traction for climbing and the heel raiser makes climbing up hills easier.Additional Info: TSL makes snowshoes that are Snowboard Boot Compatible like the 305 Explore and the 325 Escape. .

What is the difference between this and the 1035 model sold at REI?

Best Answer Responded on

(Ryan)Besides price there is no difference. Keep in mind the Atlas 1025/1030 have difference specifications. (Eric)I'm not sure what you're asking. All 10-series shoes are the same, except that the length differs. The last 2 digits denote the length of the snowshoe. The difference between the 1025, 1030, and 1035 are the lengths...25", 30", and 35" respectively.There actually is one big difference. The REI version is generally sold by an inexperienced and condescending "outdoor sales specialist." : )

Posted on

so what's the word on whether or not atlas snowshoes kick snow up on the back of your legs/back as you walk. I've heard some people say it's really bad and they can't believe they are designed with the rubberband-like mechanism because they get wet from all the snow and some people say it's not bad at all. What's the deal?

Responded on

My take is that it's better than some (ie. snowshoes with a urethane-coated webbing strap which causes a far greater springing action (example: Red Feather)). They aren't as good as those that have a pivot however (example: MSR Lightning). My experience has been that they will throw snow on your back a bit. This is does not bother me on shorter walks, but on long hikes my back ends up being completely soaked. I definitely feel this is one of Atlas' big disadvantages. I like more of a pivot system that allows the snow to slide of the back of the shoe as you walk.I have the Atlas 12s and have never had a problem with kicking snow. The biggest determinant is your personal gait though. My girlfriend does kick snow with here Atlas Elektras.

FANTASTIC ALL-AROUND SNOWSHOE

I have a previous model of the same series, and they are still going strong. The framework is very durable, the strap system works great even with gloves on and decent inclines can be climbed with no problem. If youre packing in for a few days with substaintial gear, you will want a larger series or the backcountry version, but for your everyday outing these shoes are great.

Good Snowshoes for the $$

I use these primarily for winter hiking in the Hakkoda Mountains of Northern Japan. The area is known for tons of powder all winter long. The bindings work great, even when packed with ice. They are also relatively easy to adjust/remove with thick gloves on. I'm often puzzled by the the "hiking" vs. "backcountry" snowshoes. Are they implying that the snow is somehow different on the frontside of the mountain than the backside? I'm sure more expensive snowshoes have nice features, but these seem to do everything a snowshoe should. I already use them to climb snowcapped volcanoes and wouldn't hesitate to walk into the backcountry with them.
