How to choose your snowshoes?

Match your weight

For optimal performance we generally recommend the smallest snowshoes possible, sufficient to carry you and your gear. If they're way too big, you will get extra floatation, but also more weight. If they're too small, you will save weight, but sink deeper, which is more exhausting. So, figure out aproximately the weight of your self and everything you will be carrying.

Trails or first tracks

Our snowshoes are all terrain, all condtions. Still you can consider your expected primary use of your snowshoes. Will you predominantly be hiking trails or making first tracks in deep snow? The deeper the snow, the bigger advantage of a large bearing surface. And again, if the average snow provides more support, you will be fine with a shorter, narrower model.

The recreational and the heavy-duty

You can choose between two different setups: the A-series and the X-series. In brief, the A-series are slightly lighter and more flexible. For most recreational users, they will be a safe choice. The X-series represent the extreme, heavy-duty version of a model, typically preferred by professional or advanced users.

Our snowshoes are used for all sorts of activity:

Hiking, summiting, hunting, dog sledding, Search and Rescue (SAR), military operations, guided tours, field work, outdoors photography/film making, expeditions, training and more.
