Faber Snowshoe Winter Guide 1140
Can't decide between a contemporary aluminum framed snowshoe or the wood traditional? Faber gives you another option. Made in Canada, the Winter Guide brings an arched wood frame together with a UV treated copolymer decking made to withstand -40° C. The wood frame is treated with an oil-based varnish to prevent snow and slush buildup in wet conditions. The binding has two lever ratchet buckles for easy in/out, and its position on the pivot minimizes toe lift of the snowshoe. A great all-round snowshoe.
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.
|Snowshoe size||Weight||Max user weight|
|10 x 30"||4.5 lbs||250 lbs|
|10 x 36"||4.85 lbs||300 lbs|
|11 x 40"||5.4 lbs||350 lbs|
