Aluminum alloy 7075 is one of the highest strength aluminum alloys available. It's strength to weight ratio is excellent, and it is ideally used for highly stressed parts such as aircraft components. Thus it is known as a true "Aircraft Grade" aluminum.
Aluminum V-Frames are the key to an efficient, natural stride. The V shape tracks straight in deep snow, and the tapered tail pulls less snow as you step forward, saving your energy. The turned-up tail of the V-frame rolls easily into each step for a natural gait. Built with lightweight, durable 6000- and 7000-series aluminum, the V-frames are used on all Atlas snowshoes.
TI TOE AND HEEL TRACTION
Ounces matter, so we designed the traction of our Race snowshoe with titanium toe and heel crampons for the sure footing with no weight penalty.
SPRING LOADED SUSPENTION SYSTEM
Atlas' spring loaded suspension uses a low stretch abrasion resistant strap to keep the foot stable over uneven terrain.
Flexible Nytex decking is forgiving and quiet when hiking in the cold, providing durability without the weight.
LIGHTSPEED PRO BINDING
The lightest binding Atlas has ever constructed, the LightSpeed Pro Binding is designed to hold the foot securely for exact placement on technical trails.
