Tubbs designed the Women's Flex VRT Snowshoe to take a lot of stress off your foot so you can enjoy the backcountry better. Its FlexTail bends the back at each step down in order to promote a natural heel to toe strike. The Rotation Toe Cord drops the tail down to shed snow as well as reducing cardiorespiratory strain, and the Rotation Limited protects your shin when the tail drops. A Boa closure distributes even pressure across your foot, while the DynamicFit cover ensures a women specific fit. The Flex VRT's performance on snow is as excellent as its performance on your foot. Its Torsion Deck flexes in order to accommodate variable terrain with all sorts of snow. The carbon steel Viper 2. 0 crampon works with the 3D curved Traction Rails to ensure rugged traction on steep hills and icy hardpack. Tubbs added a Snow Brake for extra traction on the way back.
