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.
