Louis Garneau designed its Men's Appalaches Snowshoe to keep you satisfied whether your day hike is flat and straight or curvy with rolling hills. This snowshoe's sturdy Contour frame keeps you light on your feet, and its optimized surface area and great snow shedding capacity help promote a natural stride across deeper snow. The Freeflex pivot provides excellent shock absorption and free foot rotation on the axle for an efficient stride that keeps you moving comfortably for miles. And the Traxx crampons offer multidirectional traction across all terrains whether they're steep, slippery, or both. This snowshoe's 3D Comfort harness system secures your foot in place for stable control in any condition, and Louis Garneau added EVA padding to prevent any discomfort from unwanted pressure. Its Lightec decking remains flexible in temperatures as low as 40F for an ideal performance regardless of the weather, and the Connect fastener system attaches the deck to the frame to enhance durability and boost the snowshoe's lateral traction over uneven terrain.
