More Details

After years of experience and hundreds of kilometres of testing we’ve settled upon a marriage of traditional snowshoes frames and modern weaving materials. The 400-lb monoline fishing line we use is lighter, stronger and more abrasion resistant than traditional rawhide. It also needs no varnish, and is much less likely to stick to wet snow. Quite simply it performs better and lasts longer than rawhide across a much wider range of conditions (and doesn’t require annual maintenance).
