How durable is the "edge", it looks "plastic"?
Hey Tim, yeah its anodized aluminum, so it kinda looks plastic in the picture...
The edge is bombproof. Far stronger than the standard aluminum tubing. I have the Lightning Ascents (same except for the binding) and have put them through treatment normal snowshoes wouldn't survive. It is like having a crampon all the way around.
Agreed - the edge is serrated anodized aluminum. Very durable and gives you the edge when it comes to steep hills and ice.
