Hike snowy trails and summit the peaks in this women-specific snowshoe.

The Atlas Women's Elektra 12 Series Snowshoe comes with the most-dialed technology and toughest/lightest materials that Atlas has in its deep bag of goodies. Designed just for women, it features outside rolling bends, a narrower waist and a tapered tail that work best with your natural stance and gait, while carefully placed straps and padding eliminate pressure points that inhibit circulation.
  • Spring-loaded suspension keeps the snowshoe close underfoot for easy maneuvering and enables deeper crampon penetration into the slope
  • Wrapp Pro bindings feature FlowTape silicone straps that glide through low-friction buckles for easy on-off
  • Ultra-lightweight, strong Reactiv 7075 aluminum frame features a stiffer, more responsive flex
  • Stainless steel Holey-i crampons get you across steep, icy slopes, while advanced aft traction delivers extra-secure footing
  • V-Frame design with a turned-up, tapered tail lets you walk naturally
  • Burly Duratek deck fabric handles rocks and sheds snow
  • Riser bar helps you get up the steepest of the steep

Much better

I returned another pair of snowshoes that broke after two uses for these Atlas 12 Series Elektra's and am very happy with my exchange! The bindings on the Elektra's make it very easy to put the snowshoes on and take them off, compared to the buckle type bindings of many other snowshoes. I find that I occasionally have to tighten the bindings throughout the day, but they usually stay tight. Like others have said, some snow pops up due to the spring loaded suspension, but it's not a big deal. Great snowshoe!

Great Product

Gave these to my girl friend for x-mas. She loves them easy on and off. Been out a bunch and not a mark on them!

Great Product

I love these too!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These snowshoes are great. Easy to get on and off, nice and light while still very durable, and functional on a variety of terrain.

Great first pair of shoes!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

After doing a lot of research, I went with this type of shoe. Easy to put on/take off, works well in a variety of conditions (not that I know much, I'm a newb). Don't have issues with stepping on my own shoes, which is good :) and they are quite light.
Bought with the Atlas 6000 Series Lock Jaw 2-piece trekking poles - good match, no problems.

Occasionally I do get the snow flipping up towards my back from the shoe movement (springs) but one just has to adjust the step a little bit (don't end so much 'on your toes' as you would if you were walking) and it fares better.
Now it just needs to snow again so I can use them!

I love these!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So glad to get these - the "serious hardware" below really grips when going up side hills or straight up a steep incline- a problem I had with lesser expensive snowshoes. If you love going in the back country & need some serious gear, this choice is for you!

I love these!

I would recommend this

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Lightweight and I appreciate the shape, as it allows me to be a little duck-footed without smacking the tails together. The only downside so far is a little bit of loose snow tends to get flung up while walking because of the way the shoe springs back, where a pair like the Tubbs Mountaineer has looser bindings that don't lift the tail at all. On the upside this keeps the tail from dragging so theoretically I'll be able to step over obstacles like downed trees more easily (I haven't had to try this yet).

Write your question here...i am inexperienced at snowshoeing, but want a versatile shoe to use on flat iowa terrain/bike trails and parks, as well as colorado terrain, powder and packed trails. i am 5'10", 140, so based on reviews, i should consider the 27s?

Responded on

Linny, if the shoes were to be used primarily on trails and hardpack I would go with the 23's. If you think you will use them on powder I would move up to the 27's. You can still use the 27's on the hardpack but they are just a little more difficult to walk in.

Best Snowshoes out there!

I am a professional guide-- and I wear these. They are light, yet durable, the EASIEST on an off off any snowshoe I've ever worn (and trust me, I've worn them all) and I haven't had a single problem.
Just to comment on a few of the reviews/questions here: If they are sinking, you bought too small a pair. Go with the 27s unless you are 100 lbs or plan to always be on packed trails. If the toe area is fraying, your boots are probably rubbing, so move you foot farther back before you tighten your straps. The thing about MSR being more versatile because you can add tails- its crap. The MSR bindings are a pain to put on and take off, they feel like bricks on your feet, and if you have hips and actually need a woman's style snowshoes, the taper in Atlas really keeps you from tripping over your tails- when MSR doesn't. Go Atlas all the way!

Thanks for the comments. Never been snowshoeing but plan on doing so this winter. We are backpackers, so need to get out in the wilderness very soon. Your review helped me a lot and you sound really knowledgeable. Thanks. I'm gunna buy Atlas.

Great product, treat them gently!

I really like these snowshoes. They are comfortable, sturdy, and stylish at the same time! I'm a recreational user, so no major "hikes" for me, and they work perfectly. The blue strap broke the very first time I wore them (bummed!) but I just zip-tied it back on and away I went. They definitely don't feel as "tight" or "industrial" as the MSR snowshoes that I had before, but the visual stimulation makes up for it! I'd buy Atlas again, for sure, just maybe not this model.

phenomenal on all terrain!

I can't believe the difference between these snowshoes and my old ones. These are on and off in seconds, and have handled the deep stuff as well as ice pack. I am very happy with these, and can't wait for winter to come again!

fabric is fraying/rubbing by big toe position on both snowshoes

Have wore them twice and already fabric is fraying/rubbing near big toe position on both snowshoes. Not sure what is causing this. I am not happy with the product, but it seems I cannot return them to where they were purchased, since I have worn them already.

I am 116 lbs. and 5' 8'' I rented the atlas snowshoes last year in the small size. They were great, until I tried to break trail in deep snow. This year I tried the MSR snowshoes. I did not get to test them in very good conditions, I felt they were not nearly as comfortable. Here is my concern. My partner prefers the MSR's because of the option of adding a extensions. He feels they are more versatile, he is a person who likes to have options so, he can go anywhere. If I get the atlas snoesshoes in the electra 1 2 series would I be able to keep up with him. Would the 27" be more versatile. We also will be using these in other places, such as Utah and more.

I am 5 3 1/2" and weigh 126 Lbs. I would be using this snow shoes in all terrain. What Size should I go for and how do I know.....


Responded on

You land on a grey area. If you plan on frequently carrying a pack or dealing with deep powder, then I would say go with the 27" shoe. Otherwise, based on your size and weight, I think you will do well with 23". You fall right in the middle of the weight range for the 23 and you don't want to be tripping over them. That being said, the width difference between the two sizes is only 1/4", so if you're still on the fence, my vote is to always go for more flotation. But that is because I rarely hike packed trails.
I hope this helps a little.

Responded on

I'm 118 pounds (5 4") and often carrying a heavy pack with camera and two lenses and all sorts of first aid stuff for dogs (I've got two that hike with me) and we go off trail a lot. So I got the 27 inch and can't be happier! You won't trip over the bigger size as we are about the same height. :) Good luck with choosing!

My wife is right in between the two sizes so is 23 or 27 going to be better? Utah gets some serious powder so I was thinking 27"

Responded on

As long as your plans aren't just to walk along packed trails or spring hiking, definitely get the larger version for utah conditions. If you are breaking trail its hard to have snow shoes that are too large in powder.

Responded on

Take in to consideration whether she will be adding weight (w/ a backpack) and how steep the terrain will be. If you are in the Millcreek area often the shorter is better if you are in the upper regions upper cottonwood and PC open area get her to break trail and go w/ the bigger size.
