Lightweight, easy to use, great value and highly recommended for those snowshoers weighing up to 195lbs who are walking on trails and rolling terrain. The Crescent Moon Silver 9 Mountain Hiking Snowshoes features the simplified SPL binding, 3 claw aluminum traction, and polished aluminum frame. The integration of an outstanding design and the simple to use components of the binding make the Silver 9 an excellent choice for recreational snowshoers and a great value for those just starting to enjoy the world of snowshoeing. 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 the 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. The Silver series of snowshoes by Crescent Moon do exactly that. All of the snowshoes by Crescent Moon are made in Boulder, CO, USA.
