Delivering premium performance for alpine ascents, the Tubbs Men's Flex VRT Snowshoe is built for getting out there onto steep and variable terrain the VRT in the name does stand for vertical, after all. The Flex VRT features Tubbs' revolutionary Dynamic Fit binding, which integrates full foot wrapping EVA foam with a Boa, click of the dial closure system. The result is a precise fit with even pressure distribution and optimized control. Tubbs also gave this thing its Torsion Deck design, which allows for torsional articulation throughout, enhancing traction and adapting to the terrain underfoot. This combines with a Flex Tail, which is ergonomically and biomechanically designed to absorb heel strike shock and to allow for a natural, stress free step. Rotating Toe Cord design allows the tail of the shoe to drop after each step without over rotating, allowing for efficient strides and reduced cardio strain. Carbon steel Traction Rails and Viper 2. 0 crampons offer maximized traction for steep and icy slopes.
