Faber is proud to present a simple yet efficient design. Stronger than conventional soft decking, this new generation of snowshoes is assembled with a new light and sturdy patented Wing Traction Decking, made out of low temperature impact copolymer (- 40 Celsius). The sturdiness is due to the decking wing torsion, providing extra traction and creating exit holes for snow. The cambered aluminium frame increases flotation and rebound action, while the curved open rear end avoids dragging effect while walking. A powder coating non-adhesive finish covers the frame. The two tone hot stamped aesthetic on the deck is very durable.
This snowshoe features the SP pivoting system, built with a carbon steel rod providing full rotation with stopper, designed to prevent the snowshoe from hitting the shinbone. It also eases backstepping and jumps over obstacles. This pivoting system is perfect for both on- and off-trail use. Positioned in front, with a firm suspension, the system eases every step by lifting the front of the snowshoe while the back end stays on the snow, saving energy when exiting the snow print unloading the decking when off-trail.
This snowshoe is equipped with a Trio CBR binding (2 lever ratchets + moulded toe stopper). This design combined with the moulded foot plate feature and the toe stopper is almost as efficient as a 3 lever ratchet binding but much lighter. A heel piece is also riveted to the deck to maximize control of the snowshoe. This series is also equipped with a 4.5 inch long aluminium front crampon + delrin teeth and a 4.75 inch long heel crampon for optimal traction on any terrain.
