The Elektra 8 Series offer Atlas performance mainstays at its best value. The Elektra 8 Series snowshoes use the no-fuss, no-hassle, Strapp binding, with excellent arch support, women's-specific lasts, and Uniloop pull, all in a minimalist form. Deeper crampon penetration and the security of tempered steel heel cleats ensure confident steps. Forgiving Nytex decking and the proven aluminum V-frames offer superior durability no matter the conditions. Because the bio mechanical differences between a man's stride and a woman's are just as important for beginners as they are for experts, the new Elektra 8 Series features the proprietary Elektra frame designed for a woman's narrower stance.
