Pop Tarts may be the only things holding some otherwise intelligent folks from attaining membership into our illustrious club. Winter doesn't forgive careless decisions easily. Start the day off with the right fuel and your likelihood of saying, 'My toes are cold. Can we go in?' are greatly reduced. This can be every bit as important as picking the right snowshoes. Something with all-around performance that doesn't chew up your whole post-workout, cappuccino-indulgence budget (hint, hint). The Hike features a Sure Grip crampon system with stainless steel front and rear crampons for stability. The Powdered coating sheds snow and ice. 6000 series aluminum frame has a unique modified round tail design for maximum flotation. The asymmetrical design allows each step to nest for maximum stride experience on all terrains. Decking is made from TX 35 Ripstop for superior puncture and abrasion resistant material that stays soft in sub zero temperatures. The Control is a rugged, secure binding which features a solid polymer heel plate, semi-rigid injection molded polyurethane toe and heel frames for superior lateral support. Also features quick-adjust nylon webbing to secure the foot in frames and flexible urethane heel strap which stretches to hold heel of boot securely. Live-action hinge lifts the tail of the shoe from the snow with every step for added mobility and speed. And please, find yourself some better breakfast.
