Our performance snowshoe for kids, the Spark provides the same excellent comfort, flotation and traction as our adult snowshoes. The youth V-Frame™ provides efficient flotation and the simple, secure Grom Binding will keep up with fast growing (and moving!) kids.Technology:- 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.- Grom Binding: Simple and intuitive, the EVA foam tongue and the soft molded base of the Grom binding cradle the foot, providing warmth, smoothing pressure points and eliminating confusing straps.- Heel Cleat: Our first patent revolutionized snowshoe performance and created an industry standard. The heel cleat adds traction and stability for climbing, descending and traversing varied terrain.- Fixed Toe Cord: The fixed toe cord keeps the snowshoe underfoot and allows for easy maneuvering for energetic kids.
