The Tubbs Flex Jr. snowshoes, for 6- to 10-year-old boys, are a sure cure for cabin fever. Traction rails with rounded corners offer go-anywhere grip and simple bindings let her take control. Bindings are simple to use and lock tight around boots for all-day stability and control. Carbon steel instep crampons maximize weighted traction for better grip and responsiveness; curved traction rails ensure superior side-hill grip in hard or icy conditions. Flex Tails absorb shock from the heel strike and allow snowshoes to have a more natural stride from heels to toes, reducing the amount of stress on joints. Decks feature torsional flex that allows traction elements to stay in contact with the snow on uneven terrain. Molded snow brakes in the deck's strike zone improve weighted traction. Tubbs Flex Jr. snowshoes are designed to shed snow off the tails so there's less work involved; rotation limiters prevent forward over-rotation. In powder conditions, Flex Jr. snowshoes are best for kids 40 - 90 lbs.; in packed or variable snow conditions they're appropriate for all weights; they measure 17 x 7 in.

Your kid needs to burn some energy, and venturing down snow-covered trails while breathing in fresh mountain air is an ideal way for him or her to do so in winter. Turn to the Tubbs' Kids' Flex Jr. Snowshoes. Designed for kids from 6 to 10 years old, the Flex Jr. serves as a fun, go-anywhere introductory snowshoe for flat and rolling terrain. Its Torsion Deck design adapts to variable snow conditions and keeps traction elements in contact with the snow at all times so your kid isn't not falling all over the place or sinking deep into the snow.The 17-inch Flex Tail frame design allows the rear third of the frame to bend as it's weighted, which increases maneuverability and reduces stress on leg joints. Side-mounted traction rails provide safe, rounded edges and give kids the confidence to keep exploring in icy conditions. The rotating toe cord improves walking efficiency by up to 7% by letting the tail of the snowshoe pivot downward so that the snow falls off with each step. A simple tightening and locking buckle on the QuickLock binding system makes getting your kid in and out of the snowshoes a cinch while also providing all-day stability and control.
