Head to the hills and get a grip with the Apex II.

Stick to the icy ridge and stay on top of the deep snowfield with the Louis Garneau Freeshape FX Apex II Snowshoe, which uses front and rear crampons to bite into the steeper slopes. The Freeshape frame design is made from lightweight aluminum and features an asymmetrical shape and a flexible Ultra-Lightec deck to give you more surface area underfoot so you can stay on top of the deep stuff.
  • Once you clip into the mitten-friendly Twin Clip Light binding, the deepest, steepest, and hardest snow won’t slow you down
  • Freeshape aluminum frame features an oval structure, like a big boot sole, so you don’t have to learn how to walk all over again in the snow
  • Backcountry Plus aluminum front crampon uses several points to grip the snow below your toes and forefoot
  • V-Rail crampon under your heel provides extra security when ascending, descending, or traversing icy slopes
  • Freeflex Pivot system rotates on an axle so the shoe stays level with the snow and then swings back into position as you take a step
  • The Ultra-Lightec deck flexes freely to improve shock absorption; decking retains its flex in temperatures down to minus 40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • The Bent Tail provides a smoother stride, drags less, and makes backward steps easier
  • Backcountry 3D-molded harness matches your foot’s shape and includes EVA padding to improve cushioning on hardpack
  • Carbon steel toe crampon bites into the snow and ice with several multidirectional points
  • Heel riser boosts your heel’s resting height so the shoe stays flush with the snow and so your calf doesn’t fatigue on steep ascents

Decent Shoe

I haven't used these on steep slopes yet, but first impressions on rolling terrain are fairly good. The heel riser makes quite a difference on inclines. The crampons bit into all kinds of snow and ice. They are aluminum so stomping rocks and trees may not be a smart choice. Float was well even in the super wet snow we get in the Pacific North West. Got these on SAC for a screamin' deal. Very happy!
