Hell froze over.
In Norse mythology, Fimbulvetr is the mighty winter following Ragnarök's apocalypse. In the outdoor industry, Fimbulvetr redesigned the snowshoe so the Hikr Snowshoe can handle the post-apocalyptic winter. The Hikr handles any terrain with superlight convenience and reliable traction. Its fully recycled DuPont Hytrel frame is highly durable, surprisingly flexible, and very light for maximum flotation in heavy powder. The frame comes in an 3D-mapped, asymmetric design for an ergonomic performance.
Fimbulvetr's patented All Direction Hinge distributes your weight in all directions so you can stroll over steep, off-angled terrain with ease. The B4 Binding accommodates any shoe, and there are stainless steel crampons to bite into ice and slippery snow for reliable traction. Fimbulvetr added heel lifts, which contribute to the 12 total components that make up the Hikr, meaning it's less likely to break.

- Q & A
Different in a good way
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm a big guy and these give me plenty of float. As everyone has noted, they're weird compared to other snowshoes, but weird in this case is good. They have lots of grip on steep slopes, they're sturdy, and in general, I don't have any complaints.
As someone else noted, the bindings, while simple, were a bit frustrating at first because they weren't what I was used to, but they aren't cheap. They're strong, and after a few minutes of fiddling with it, I realized they're plenty easy as well.

The wife will learn to love them
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
When we first got them I was shocked at how big they were, but after picking them up I realized that these just might do the trick. They are a completely different design than what I am used to when dealing with snow shoes. The strap system is very easy to work with, as the wife had them on her feet and ready to go before I even got my first snowshoe strapped in. While the strap was a little long after tightening them up I see these being a huge success moving forward with more and more use. If you want a snowshoe that can basically blow through anything that comes in its way I strongly recommend giving these a try.
Sad bindings and colors not as shown
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Cool platform design but sad bindings and no instructions to properly secure them - $270 shoes with cheap bindings - too long and extra long drag in snow - have to tie them out of the way - not thought through at all - seriously thinking about sending 2 new pairs back - very disappointed. Plus colors suck - orange is not vibrant - more of a burnt/dull orange and white is a putty-off white.
