Racer approved, the Dual-Trac Super Lite by Atlas is a runner's dream for winter races with a lightweight tapered design that enables a natural running stride.Atlas has the only true suspension system for snowshoes giving you the freedom to move naturally through your stride. Length: 22 in. Surface Area: 134 sq. in. Weight (pair): 1.94 lbs. Load: 78 - 190 / 220 lbs
Weighing less than a pound per snow shoe, the Dual Trac SL remains the lightest running snowshoe in the industry, but the Easton 7000 series aluminum frame and titanium toe and heel crampons make it also one of the toughest. The premium urethane deck is 33% lighter than Duratek decks so you don't feel like you're running in climbing boots. The Dual Trac SL was originally developed for the Atlas Racing Team and features the same patented spring-loaded binding used in the top 10 and 12 Series snowshoes, so you enjoy true forward and side hill articulation with incredible balance. Our staff members here who run on the Dual Trac SL (some for more than three years now) note that it works best on packed snow. Although Atlas suggests using these running snowshoes 190 lbs. on settled snow, some running styles generate far more impact in excess of 190 lbs. with every stride and this isn't a design built for extra floatation (unless you are among the lucky few who weigh less than 120 lbs. while fully dressed and ready to run). If you're serious about staying in shape all winter or you simply like running in the snow, the Atlas Dual Trac SL is an outdoor conditioning favorite that's ready to race when you are.
