Intended to tackle variable mountainous terrain, the Montane provides strength and articulation for uncompromised technical hiking. This shoe features the Mountain Hiking necessities such as a heel lift bar and Spring-Loaded™ Suspension, but sets itself apart with the Wrapp™ Swift binding which provides comfort, warmth, and easy-to-use straps.Specifications:- Snowshoe Series: Backcountry- Heel Lift: Yes- Suspension: Spring-Loaded SuspensionTechnologies:V-Frame™:- A proprietary Atlas shape, our sturdy aluminum V-Frame™ is the key to an efficient, natural stride. The V shape tracks straight in deep snow, and the tapered tail pulls less snow as you step forward, saving your energy. The turned-up tail of the V-frame™ rolls easily into each step for a natural gait. Built with lightweight, durable 6061-series aluminum, the V-frames™ are used on all Atlas snowshoes, including our new Youth Series.Spring-Loaded™ Suspension:- An Atlas tenet from the beginning, Atlas’ patented Spring-Loaded™ Suspension (SLS) keeps the snowshoe close underfoot for easy maneuvering and suspends your foot so it can move freely with its intended articulation. The suspension absorbs impact and lets your foot flex naturally side-to-side for a comfortable, stable position on traverses and uneven terrain. SLS enhances traction control too, as the flex provides deeper crampon penetration into the slope, especially on steep or off-angle terrain.Wrapp™ Swift Binding:- Built on the renowned fit and arch support of the Wrapp™ platform, the Wrapp™ Swift binding blends technical fit with great comfort and ease of use from the positive toe locator, warm EVA padding, and straps that cinch and release like a breeze.Nytex Decking:- Flexible Nytex decking is forgiving and quiet when hiking in the cold, providing durability without the weight.All-Trac™ Toe Crampon:- The time-tested geometry of our All-Trac™ toe crampon provides traction in all directions. Wider traction tabs on the sides and corners complement sharp front and rear points for confident hiking.Traverse Trac Rails:- The sharp ridges of our side rails augment the downhill function of the heel cleat, running parallel to the snowshoe frame for solid footing, even on firm sidehill terrain.
