Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars

These are excellent and comfortable snowshoes. They are very light weight and maintain stability in all kinds of snow conditions. The "one pull" ease to put them on and the heel riser for steep terrain make this snowshoe a winner.

Big and buoyant, the Atlas Elektra 12 Series Snowshoes are designed for women who want the steeper and deeper. But that doesn't mean these mountain hikers are heavy. At less than 5 lbs the 7075 aluminum frame keeps the weight down. The Zodiac toe crampons provide a reliable purchase on icy patches and wind slabs. Stainless steel Zodiac toe crampon deeply penetrates even the firmest snow Weight-activated, StabiLock Rear Traction Wrapp Pro binding

The Atlas Women's Elektra 12 Series Snowshoe comes with the most advanced technology and toughest and lightest materials that Atlas has in its deep bag of goodies. Designed just for women, it features outside rolling bends, a narrower waist and a tapered tail that work best with your natural stance and gait, while carefully placed straps and padding eliminate pressure points that inhibit circulation. This is Atlas' most aggressive Women's 12-series binding yet. With a lightweight Speed-V frame that maximizes flotation while it minimizes deck interference, the 12-Series Snowshoe is designed to give you total mobility, even when it gets deep and the terrain gets extra-rugged. The turned-up tail provides a more-natural feel as you move. Atlas' new Wrapp Pro binding provides comfort and easy entry. The Duratek decking is extremely tough and lightweight, and it sheds snow so you aren't carrying pounds of backcountry along with you. The tenacious stainless steel Zodiac toe crampon digs in when the going gets tough so you can access terrain that would have never thought possible.

Atlas Women's 12 Series Electra Snowshoe FEATURES of Atlas Women's 12 Series Electra Snowshoe ReactiV Frame: Atlas' most recent patent, the variable forming of our 7075 aluminum ReactiV frame changes from a cylindrical to an elliptical shape to increase strength where the frame bears the greatest loads for a stiffer, more responsive snowshoe frame. 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. Wrapp Pro Binding: The men's and women's Wrapp Pro bindings feature FlowTape silicone straps that glide through low-friction buckles with a smooth buckle release for easy on-off use. Heel Lift Bar: On steep climbs, calf muscles tire quickly and traction decreases when your foot matches the slope angle. The heel lift bar eases fatigue and ties directly into Advanced Aft Traction for grip. Duratek Decking: Our lightest and strongest deck ing, Duratek uses a pebble-finish for more abrasion resistance on the 12 Series, Elektra 12 Series, Elektra 11 Series, and BC24 snowshoes.
