Atlas 1023 Elektra Women’s Snowshoes

Atlas 1023 Elektra Women’s Snowshoes – great all around women’s hiking snowshoes

Specially designed for a woman’s unique stride and foot shape, the Atlas 1012 Elektra Women’s Snowshoes will make you want to keep hiking all day long.

The Atlas Elektra perform well on packed snow and light powder.  With tempered steel toe crampons and Traverse Trac rails, the Elektra gives you the confidence you need to ascend wintery slopes while tempered steel heel cleats provide unparalleled traction when traveling downhill.

Atlas’ patented Wrapp Comfort bindings are easy to operate plus they reduce pressure points and offer padding for added warmth. To adjust, simply pull up on the “Uniloop” strap to easily adjust the straps around the toes, heel, and instep.

No clunky, unnatural slide here, the Elektra’s V-shaped design encourages a more natural stride.  A tapered tail also reduces the amount of snow kicked up as you move forward increasing your efficiency.
