I bought these snowshoes since the quality of the bindings look great and I liked the shape. They seemed that they would be great to be walking on any type of snow. After only 2 or 3 outings with these, I noticed that the deck was splitting on the sides wither the rivits join. Upon closer inspection, I noticed many tears all over the deck.... It seemed like the snowshoe was literally falling apart.
- Bindings are great
- Good overall shape
- Walks great in any terrain
- The deck is absolutely terrible! Poor quality and will tear.
I brought them back to the shop where I got them and was told that this was a re-occuring problem with these snowshoes. I managed to exchange these for a great pair of Canadian made Fabers. I would not recommend anyone to purchase the Louis Garneau Freeshape FX Pulse II.

The Freeshape asymmetrical oval frame features lightweight aluminum and has a flexible Ultra-Lightec deck to give you more surface area for staying on top of the deep snow.
