rated 2 of 5 stars Well I like the snowshoes, but as for others, the front crampon broke after maybe 10 times of usage. This is complete bull, considered you pay extra for Titanium material. Full review

9 Series

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great quality basic snowshoe for non-mountaineering use. Comfortable stride and good grip, excellent bindings. After going through three other pairs of snowshoes that failed in the field (snapped frame, broken cleats, broken straps...) I finally ended up with these. They have stood the test of time over a few years on numerous trips, are the most comfortable ones I've had, have excellent and simple to use bindings, and look cool (to me).   The suspension system is really good and the toe lift is… Full review

12 Series

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bindings fell apart after 7 or 8 uses. Atlas claims a lifetime warranty but no repair offered for my claim. Will find another brand next time.

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
