The Redfeather Women's Hike Snowshoe was designed to provide a snowshoeing experience that is easy on a woman's hips, knees and joints. Because a woman has a slightly narrower stride than a man, Redfeather created the framework of this snowshoe to be in harmony with that narrow stride. The result is a woman's snowshoe that will provide hour after hour of hiking and recreational snowshoeing enjoyment. The Live Action Hinge on the Hike for Women picks the tail of the snowshoe up with each step for added mobility and speed. The Control Binding System is a rugged design with quick-adjust nylon webbing that ensures a secure fit and superior lateral support.
With western round tails for maximum flotation and a frame specifically built to accommodate the narrower stride of the average woman, Hike 25 snowshoes provide sure footing on any terrain.

The Redfeather Story Redfeather Snowshoes was founded in 1988 by a snow-bound triathlete with the idea of designing a better snowshoe that would allow racers to train during the snowy Colorado winter months. His original design became the legendary Redfeather Redtail, the lightweight aluminum V-tail snowshoe that transformed snowshoeing from an awkward mode of transportation into the modern sport that we all know today. Located in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Redfeather continues to strive for technical innovation, performance, and unsurpassed quality in all of its snowshoes.
