Summary

This review is for the Denali Evo tails. Generally useful in that they provide a little extra flotation when needed. Convenient as they can be used only when conditions warrant. They do move the balance point of the shoe forward so they can feel as if you are walking down hill (even when on flat ground).

Pros

  • Added flotation

Cons

  • Shift the balance and weight distribution of the snowshoe forward.

They do move the balance point of the shoe forward so they can feel as if you are walking down hill (even when on flat ground).

They are durable and the fit is secure. They are a great option that extends the versatility of a very good snowshoe.
