Fimbulvetr TANKR

Unstoppable force

Fimbulvetr Tankr

What makes Tankr different is the combination of length, traction and versatility, enabled by that characteristic hinge and rocker design. They are really long snowshoes with an extraordinary load capacity and flow, still providing exceptional maneuverability to anyone. Tankr is up for rough expeditions, or generally making hard work in deep snow remarkably less exhausting.

 

 

Fimbulvetr Tankr - ISPO AWARD GOLD WINNER 2016/17

A good example of making design a starting point for product sustainability. As shown in the material choice, a lifetime guarantee and the ability for repair.

Hugin the Binding - NEW!

Perfect fit. Super strong.

Hugin binding

A snowshoe binding must be easy to mount and dismount under all circumstances, and give proper and enduring support. A binding should also be lightweight and robust. The Hugin Binding is an evolved version of our original binding. We have swapped the straps and buckles for an efficient lace and lock system. The lacing provides tight, even pressure and support around the foot, kept in place by an intuitive locking mechanism. Hugin comes with all our snowshoes from winter 2017/18.

 

If you already have Fimbulvetr snowshoes and want to benefit from this great product development, order Hugin here to upgrade. Shipping from late 2018 January.

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.
