User Review: Atlas 10 Series
Price Paid: $130
Overall, great snowshoes. I bought the 1025 (25" size) for hiking in the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and they work very well. The crampon design is excellent, one of the few snowshoes I've ever used that had a usable crampon setup for climbing. Although they are sold as "trail walking" snowshoes, their performance exceeds that of any other snowshoe I know of in the category.
The bindings are great as well. They're super easy to adjust and hold your foot securely. The single loop strap (and heel loop) design takes seconds to adjust and it stays put, no special tweaking necessary.
The only thing that keeps these shoes from a five-star rating is the SLS system, or Spring Loaded Suspension. This "spring-loaded" design holds the shoe at about a 30-50 degree angle from the deck. When you step down, you pre-load the 2-strap binding attachment a bit. It holds my snowshoes about level when swinging my foot through the air, making the shoes drag-free and easy to maneuver. But, if you don't walk in a certain way (i.e. you lift your heel a lot and quickly with each step) they have a tendency to fling snow at you back. It's not really a problem for me, but it may be for you.
Bottom Line: I recommend them, but I'd suggest trying them out or at least examining your own stride before buying.
