Another great value by Crescent Moon for snowshoeing off or on-trail, the Silver 10 Backcountry Snowshoes are exceptionally light for its size and provides terrific floatation and very good maneuverability for snowshoers up to 225lbs. The tear-drop shape makes it easy to walk in tight trees or deep snow and the simplified SPL binding will keep your feet centered and comfortable in all snow conditions. (The binding fits up to size 11, larger sized feet should consider the Gold 10 which fits up to size 15). The 3 claw traction system consists of aluminum toe, main, and heel crampons which provide traction on hard and icy surfaces. You can count on a great backcountry experience from Crescent Moon Silver 10s. The bindings are the most important part of any snowshoe and all of the Silver models have a modified version of the award winning SPL binding. The Silver series feature a simple cam-locking cinch buckle while overthe-foot buckles are nylon cinch mechanisms. The Silver series of snowshoes also have aluminum crampons vs. stainless steel claws and polished aluminum frames. The Silver series of shoes feature 6063 aircraft grade aluminum, TIG welded tear-drop shaped frames, PVC free decking material called TGS (the good stuff), and polyurethane harness which forms the stirrup section of the SPL binding. All of the models in the Silver series of snowshoes feature a fixed-rotation" hinge system, which means the snowshoe lifts off the ground with each step this is the opposite of a free-rotation" shoe which drags the tail of the shoe along the ground and will never lift any snow. Crescent Moon snowshoes are more responsive, maneuverable, and athletic than free-rotation shoes, but, you will never get snow thrown on you with the free rotation design, even though you may not be as maneuverable. The choice is yours, but Crescent Moon feels the snowshoes should closely follow the natural motion of your foot and the mechanics of your normal gait.
