SPIN BINDINGS BY NORTHWAVE: The laces of the SPIN binding are made out of DYNEEMA PLUS POLYESTER which is very resistant to abrasion. This fabric is often used for climbing rope.
Exclusive high-flexibility aluminum frame: Flexible rigidity - it's the paradox of performance traction! GV Snowshoes has combined an exclusive high-flexibility alloy to a frame geometry that provide rigidity and memory of form. The resulting balance of forces works for you by ensuring that the traction surface is always optimal no matter how uneven the terrain.
Crampons to help face any situation: Side crampons located under the foot area improves stability and traction during lateral climbs. The frame's flared profile also provides additional stability by maximizing grip and comfort of movement. With a pivoting front gripping crampon and two 5-point crosspieces, traction and stability are ensued when tackling uneven ground or icy surfaces.
Ingenious frame design to prevent snow build-up: The flared frame design prevents the build-up of snow underneath the snowshoe. With each step, regardless of conditions, the snow "unmoulds" from the frame by simple force of gravity. Also, the slanted sides limit frame-to-frame friction as you move. The snowshoes elevated and streamlined rear profile , as well as the angled rear crosspiece, reduce drag and minimize effort. It's an ingenius design that doesn't affect flotation or traction in any way.
Comfort frame geometry: The flattened front of the frame was designed to maximize comfort during steep climbs or while working in a crouched position. The flattened front allows the shin to rest directly on the decking, without painful impacts from the frame.
