Crescent Moon Mag 9
Here's what other sites are saying:
Go lighter with Crescent Moon's Magnesium 9 snowshoes - 3/4 pound less than the Gold Series 9! The quick, single-pull binding and teardrop shape deliver user ease and comfort while the TIG-welded magnesium frame and aluminum/magnesium crampons are tough enough to go anywhere. Molded polyurethane foot-glove binding with single pull loop (SPL) system optimizes comfort and support. Hypalon straps will not freeze or expand, so they stay in the correct adjustment. Polycarbonate buckle ratchets your heel snugly into place. Six different rivet locations secure the binding strap to the frame, providing redundant durability. TIG welded, magnesium tubing for less weight and long-lasting performance. Proprietary TGS, "The Good Stuff", decking material is stable and durable in all snow conditions. Teardrop shape allows a more natural stride and better maneuverability; you are less likely to step on the tapered heel. Lightweight aluminum/magnesium three-claw traction; unique toe claw gives you added balance and climbing ability.
Crescent Moon designed the Mag 9 Hiking Snowshoe for lightweight performance on a grab-bag of wintry terrains. The Mag 9 features the same SPL (single pull loop) binding as the famed Gold 9 shoe including cam-locking buckles and secure gel polymer stirrups except the Mag uses an aluminum traction system for a lighter overall weight. Crescent Moon constructed the frame from welded magnesium instead of traditional aluminum, which shaved off nearly a pound. The TGS decking replaces PVC for reduced environmental impact. Steel three-claw crampons give these backcountry snowshoes a solid bite.
