Easton Mountain Products Artica Hike Snowshoe - Men's
Easton Mountain Products tossed out the mold when it created the Men's Artica Hike Snowshoe. Rather than stick to the traditional trend of a fully rigid frame, Eastern Mountain Products gave this snowshoe an articulated frame design with a dynamic flex that adapts to the terrain under your foot. Couple this advance with a split-toe crampon and easy-entry Quick-Cinch binding system, and winter hikers have a new, highly efficient tool for trekking into deep snow beyond the trail.
- Men's model has a longer, uniquely nested step pattern that allows left and right snowshoes to step close to each other without catching
- Articulating frame design secures the left and right rails of each shoe using flexible material that allows each rail to articulate independently over uneven terrain, improving traction and reducing stress on joints
- Forged USA aluminum is lightweight, ultra-durable, and made from 80% recycled material
- Quick-cinch binding system uses a single strap to cinch the binding around your boot and secure your foot into the binding on all sides, a second strap releases the binding so you can exit easily
- Contoured padding allows the inside of the binding to hug your boot easily in order to eliminate pressure points that cause pain
- Synthetic Excursion deck material is highly abrasion- and puncture-resistant
- Virtual Pivot Traction Cam allows the crampon to dip below the level of the decking as needed, digging deeper and creating more traction
- High-strength stainless steel crampons dig deep into ice and packed snow, and the crampons resist wear should you have to cross dirt or paved roads
- Toe crampons have a one-of-a-kind toe-like claw shape that transfers your hiking energy more efficiently for increased traction whether you're ascending, descending, or sidestepping on a slope
- Heel cleat is aggressively shaped to prevent slipping when you're ascending or descending
- Climb-assist heel lift stays tucked away under your heel on top of the deck until you need it, and then it flips out to provide a more efficient foot position when you're climbing steep pitches
