Intended to tackle variable mountainous terrain, the Montane provides strength and articulation for uncompromised technical hiking, with a heel lift bar that eases calf strain, and Spring-Loaded Suspension (SLS) for classic Atlas precision and articulation.
The new Elektra Montane women's snowshoe was designed to handle variable mountainous terrain. The women's specific design of its elektra V-Frame and time-tested Spring-Loaded suspension system provides a sturdy and versatile platform for the Montane's comfortable, precision-fit Wrapp Swift binding, with the added bonus of heel lift bar to ease calf strain. Don't let a steep summit turn you around - keep going on the Atlas Elektra Montane.
• Wrapp Swift Binding: Built on the renowned fit and arch support of the Wrapp platform, the Wrapp Swift binding blends technical fit with great comfort and easy of use from the positive toe locator, warm EVA padding, and straps that cinch and release like a breeze.
• Spring-Loaded Suspension: An Atlas tenet from the beginning, Atlas' patented Spring-Loaded Suspension (SLS) keeps the snowshoe close underfoot for easy maneuvering and suspends your foot so it can move freely with its intended articulation. The suspension absorbs impact and lets your foot flex naturally side-to-side for a comfortable, stable position on traverses and uneven terrain. SLS enhances traction control too, as the flex provides deeper crampon penetration into the slope, especially on steep or off-angle terrain.
• Heel Lift Bar: On steep climbs, calf muscles tire quickly and traction decreases when your foot matches the slope angle. The heel left bar eases fatigue and ties directly into Advanced Aft Traction for grip.
• V-Frames: A proprietary Atlas shape, the sturdy 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, including the new Youth Series.
