Fimbulvetr RANGR - 2016 Edition

Go big, maximum floatation

Fimbulvetr Rangr

Designed to support heavy loads in the backcountry. The large, but compact bearing surface, gives an unparalleled ratio between strength, low weight and maneuverability. RANGR is the original Fimbulvetr snowshoe, for maximum floatation in deep powder. An excellent tool for making first tracks in flat and hilly terrain.

 

For winter 2016 we have upgraded RANGR, adding slightly more stifness to the snowshoes and perfected the B4 Binding.

The Fimbulvetr Story

Fimbulvetr (Old Norse: «The Great Winter») is committed to professionals and hardcore winter enthusiasts.

At Fimbulvetr we consequently go for the highest quality materials, design and craftsmanship, to provide superior mobility during winter.

 

Our awarded snowshoes are unlike any other. Traditional snowshoes typically have many breakable parts, feel detached and limit movements. We set out to create stronger, lighter, more durable and ergonomic snowshoes. The result is a whole new snowshoe experience, best described as a natural extension of the foot.

 

Made in Norway.

 

Technically speaking

Your future snowshoes merge agelong Norwegian winter heritage with well proven high-tech.

Fimbulvetr snowshoes are made from Dupont™ Hytrel® RS (Renewable Source), a thermoplastic elastomer commonly applied in car engines and shock absorbers. We couldn't find a stronger, more durable material on the planet, with better thermoplastic properties. Of course it´s fully recyclable. Through 3D-modelling we explore double curved surfaces, which provide structural stiffness with minimal material usage.

 

Each snowshoe is accurately molded into an asymmetric, lightweight unibody. Flexibility is governed by basic geometric principles - thickness and shape. The honeycomb pattern grants maximum torsional strength and floatation. In our ergonomic, patented All Direction Hinge™, we use a waveformed compliant mechanism to achieve smooth, multi-directional weight and force distribution. Ready for millions of cycles and hard impact over a wide temperature range. Fimbulvetr snowshoes come with a limited lifetime warranty.

 

It all means that you can move like never before on snow.
