If you are an intermediate or advanced female snowshoer looking for a lightweight, durable snowshoe made for tackling everything from packed trails to deep powder and ice in steep terrain, than the Atlas Eleckta Mountain 10 Series is a solid choice.

Designed with a woman’s lower center of gravity and shorter stride in mind, the Elektra Mountain Series make your winter hiking experience easy, comfortable, and more fun than you thought possible.

These Atlas snowshoes feature a V Frame design that makes strides totally natural. The snowshoes also feature steel crampons to help you on steep terrain and plush, ergonomically designed bindings that eliminate all pressure points and are easy to fasten even with gloved hands.

The padded Wrapp Plus binding adds an extra layer of warmth to the instep of the foot and features Atlas’ patented Spring-Loaded Suspension. The decking is also a new nylon reinforced material that stays durable but flexible in extreme cold.
