Take it from the experts the Atlas Racing Team. The Race is the snowshoe of choice for its athletes, and together they're found on snowshoe and adventure race podiums around the world. Driven by Spring-Loaded Suspension, the Race stays close underfoot and allows for a natural stride over uneven terrain. The one-pull binding wraps under the arch and ball of foot for comfort and security. Atlas pared down the ounces on its lightest snowshoe with a 7075 aluminum frame and titanium toe and heel crampons that provide grip without drag while running up hill or down, to help the runners gain a competitive edge.
