Atlas Race – Snowshoes: Reviews

LIGHT AND FAST

Wear a heart-rate monitor while you snowshoe? The Race is for you. Titanium claws help keep them light without compromising traction, and the V-shaped frame won't trip you up at high speeds. The crisscross Race binding cinches tight without crushing feet shod in flexy shoes. 2.1 lbs, 22"; atlassnowshoes.com

PAIR IT WITH La Sportiva Ultranord GTX-XCR

Bonus: As with its Gear of the Year–winning cousin, the 12 Series, a Spring-Loaded Suspension keeps your foot in a natural position.

Bummer: It's not as durable as heavier models.
