Tubbs Women’s Frontier Snowshoes

Tubbs Women’s Frontier Snowshoes – perfect for light powder and packed trails

Ideal for mild terrain, Tubbs Women’s Frontier Snowshoes are perfect for hitting your local snowshoe trails, golf courses, and parks.  Carbon steel crampons provide all the traction you need for exploring flat terrain and heel crampons help with footing on mild downhill slopes.

Tubbs was the first company to design a women’s specific snowshoe and they remain committed to creating the best designs for women. Tubbs Frontier Snowshoes are lighter than male and unisex models, are more tapered for ease of stride, and offer bindings scaled down to fit a woman’s narrower and smaller foot.

The ergonomically designed “Fit-Step” frame is designed with a flipped up tail that allows the frame to roll more naturally from heel to toe.  A rotated toe cord enables the frame to shed snow as you walk, minimizing the amount of snow you carry around.

The easy to adjust Frontier “Quick-Step” binding system uses two buckles to ensure the perfect fit.  The bindings accommodate a wide variety of boots and running shoes, and Tubb’s “Control Wing” technology keeps the foot aligned with the snowshoe for efficient travel.
