rated 1.5 of 5 stars Toe crampon breaks easily!!! I like these snowshoes except the titanium toe cramping breaks easily. Then Atlas makes you contact the retailer to set up repair through Atlas, and then you have to pay shipping. How do they consider this a warranty? So far they have broken twice in same location, seems to be a design flaw that they don't wish to change. Very poor customer service! Full review

Elektra 11 Series

rated 3 of 5 stars Bought these a few years ago now, have used them almost weekly and for the most part happily during snow season ever since. I actually came on Trailspace to look at a stiffer composite upgrade. The Elektras are lightweight and great for relatively flat terrain or for climbing straight up and down hills... not so great for traversing a slope, which stresses out my ankles when wearing these. They also do kick up a lot of snow...waterproof pants are a must with these. Full review

Elektra 9 Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Granted, these are my first pair of snowshoes, but I am quite pleased with them! I thought they perform well and I don't have the problem of snow being kicked up from the back. I've done just a little running with them so far, but hope to do more. All I remember about snowshoeing were those horrible wooden, tennis racket/boat things we wore in Phys Ed in junior high 30 years ago. Based on friends telling me I had to try it again and hoping to be able to try some snow shoe running or at least maintain… Full review

Elektra 12 Series

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Fabric located near the big two position on both snowshoes is fraying/rubbing. Not sure what is causing this, but I am not happy. Full review

Elektra 9 Series

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Terrible design. The open spaces in the back collect snow, and the suspension mechanism flips it up.   I was soaked in less than 10 min.  Also, the hard plastic binding is hard to fit when it's cold--it gets stiff and unruly. My husband has Tubbs and I used them without any snow flipping, and a very easy, comfortable fit around my boots.  Would not recommend this product.  Back to the drawing board, Atlas. Full review
