Faber Snowshoe North Lander 825
A budget friendly snowshoe with great traction. Aggressive front and back aluminum crampons are suited to all terrain, and the UV treated Wing Traction Decking (WTD) has holes that not only let the snow escape off your snowshoe, they provide traction as well. The binding has an easy to use ratcheting system and your foot pivots over a carbon steel rod, which is a lot lighter than stainless steel. And the SP pivoting system gives the snowshoe a little "lift" in the front as you walk to ease strain on your legs.
To size correctly, use the following chart. Because this chart is for packed snow conditions and we have very dry snow here in Saskatchewan, we recommend going a size bigger than the chart says if you will be off-trail.
