    Who said snowshoeing has to be hard?

    Atlas made the Women's Elektra 10 Series Snowshoe to make your winter hiking experience easy, comfortable, and more fun than you thought possible. Between its lightweight frame, plush bindings, and grippy crampon and rails, this binding will tempt you powerfully to stay out all day.
    • Spring-loaded suspension keeps the snowshoe close underfoot for easy maneuvering and enables deeper crampon penetration into the slope
    • Wrapp Swift bindings feature comfortable EVA padding and easy-to-use straps
    • Tempered steel All-Trac crampons get you across steep, icy slopes, while Traverse Trac rails deliver extra-secure footing
    • Atlas 6061 aluminum V-Frame design with a turned-up, tapered tail lets you walk naturally
    • Nytex deck fabric handles rocks and sheds snow
    • Riser bar eases strain on calf muscles
    • Item #ATL0127

    Nice, lightweight shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I ordered the 22" snowshoes as I am 5'4" and weigh 116. These snowshoes are the most comfortable, easiest to use shoe I've ever had. The bindings are fairly easy to use and my foot stays in the shoe snugly, never coming out as in past snowshoes. The big disappointment with this shoe is that the heel riser is virtually useless. It is very difficult to pull up and impossible to place back down without taking off my snowshoes. It has to be pulled straight back and down. Try doing that behind you in deep snow. Just won't work. So, if you are planning on climbing steep mountains and want a heel riser, this is not the shoe for you.

    My lady's first set

      After pulling my wife up two different trails she got into it. Finally admitted shoeing is fun. Only gripe the heal strap is a pain o get loose after a long trek...

      Hoist a few with the heel lift

      Heel lift makes the climb easy enough to enjoy a brew on ascent.

      Up up and away

      Check out my right foot, it's basically level because my heel is resting on the lift bar. The heel lift is an advantage on steep stretches.

      Comfortable Bindings

      The bindings on the Elektra 10's are comfortable and hold tightly. They're a lot easier to put on than bindings that are strictly webbing - the foam portions hold them open.

      I flippin' love'em!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love my Atlas Elektra 10's and recommend them highly.

      I got my 27" Electra 10's when I weighed 180 - ugh - and I used them on a 3 mile backpacking trip. So I can vouch for the loft capabilities!

      These days I weigh 130 in the winter - curse all that delicious food that comes with gravy! I'm still glad that I have 27" 'shoes. Whether I'm carrying a load or not, I appreciate the extra loft. I always encourage people to buy longer snowshoes.

      Elektra 10's are equipped with the Atlas SLS or Spring-Loaded Suspension. What does that mean? Well, the tail of the 'shoe doesn't drag and the deck of the 'shoe stays snow-free resulting in less user effort. Being lazy, I appreciate this feature.

      The downside of the the SLS system is that it flings snow unrelentingly onto my butt (taller folk might get it on the legs).

      The snow flipping didn't bother me at first because I always wore snowpants. When I started taking quick trips after work, I would go in jeans and get soaked.

      Now that I've had these snowshoes for 4 years, the bindings have loosened a bit and they are more like tail-draggers - no more wet butt.

      Atlas Elecktra 10, 11, & 12's are equipped with the snow-flipping SLS system.

      Atlas Elecktra 8 & 9's have the older Free-Rotating Suspension - they are tail-draggers and don't flip snow.

      Atlas has since replaced the FRS with their new Light-Ride Suspension (tail-dragger, no snow-flipping) available on their new Treeline series.

      I was drawn in by the shape of Atlas snowshoes . I'm not graceful at all and I figured a shaped, women's-specific snowshoe was the best way to prevent stepping on myself constantly. Crescent also makes aggressively shaped 'shoes but they tend to be pricier.

      The Elecktra 10's have a heel-lift. It works really well but I hardly ever remember to utilize it. The crampon and side rails are toothy and effective, there's good traction heel to toe and the side rails make steep descents easy.

      I highly recommend Atlas as a brand but I have a hard time saying you should buy one model over another.

      My mom has a pair of Elecktra 8's and she's really glad that they don't throw snow all over her butt. She doesn't have a heel lift and the bindings look a little less plush but from short distance, it looks like she and I just bought different colors of the same 'shoe.

      I'd say shop by suspension and price but honestly, you could just pick your model based on color and I don't think you'd be making a mistake. Atlas makes really great snowshoes.

      Decent Shoes, but throws a bit of snow

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Got these for my wife at the same time I got some men's Atlas 10s for myself, and we've taken both sets all around the far corners of Minnesota.



      All in all, they're a very solid shoe, easy to get on and off with the one strap system, and the crampons are great for slicker hills. The only reason we'd give it a 4 instead of a 5 is they do have a tendency to throw a lot of snow onto the back of her legs, something my pair of Atlas 10s doesn't seem to do as much. Not a huge deal if you've got a good pair of waterproof snowpants on (recommended anyways for deep backcountry outings), but if you're in regular pants for a quick city park hike, they're gonna get wet and probably some snow getting down inside your boots too.

      They do throw some snow! Or at least they did at one time. On my last 2 trips I noticed the snow-throwing had stopped. I think maybe my bindings loosened up a bit after years of use. I'm happy about it since the 'shoes still seem to function just fine.

      Easy to use and stable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The shoe needs to be easy to put on and comfortable without coming loose. While using the needs to be a feeling of stability. The Atlas meets these requirements - very nice product.

      what would be the best snow show for park city, utah. I want to be able to use it in all terrain. New to snowshoeing but athletic. grip is important to me and would like a snow shoe I could use on areas with powder but also "run" with on more packed terrain. Also, can I use my ski polls for snow snowshoeing? I was looking at the Tubbs Flex (leaning to the trek model versus the alp), Tubbs Expedition, and MSR lightning. I am wondering if utah has too much powder for Tubbs Flex... I don't plan on carrying weight or camping.... day exploring/exercise all over the terrain. Is there a lesser priced shoe that would work for my needs? Grip and side stepping feel important (I am 5'8, 125 without snow gear and 31yrs old) --- I could be in powder, on an icy hill, or semi packed hill or groomed areas all in the same day.
      Thank you. (I like the mobility the lighting showed when a guy "ran" in it- could the Tubbs do the same? Is one brand better than another?

      Colleen,



      Great question.



      You'll be a bit hard pressed to find a snowshoe that handles well in powder and still have the ability to run in it. Those are each at the opposite ends of the performance spectrum. Keep in mind you'll most likely lose a bit of performance for running.



      For what you're looking at (and especially the icey hills) I'd go for the MSR snowshoes as they provide the best traction.



      Everyone,

      Feel free to email me with snowshoeing questions!

      I'm looking for snowshoes for a woman who's...

      I'm looking for snowshoes for a woman who's ~150lbs (not sure of exact weight...). What size of Atlas Elektra 10s are best?

      I have the 27's & I don't wish they were smaller. They're quite maneuverable & if your friend wants to carry a pack, it's good to have the longer shoe. These are great snowshoes, Atlas makes good stuff.
