The classic tubular-frame snowshoe in our Trail Walking category, the Access shines on mellower terrain by making your strides feel as natural and effortless as possible. This is accomplished by the innovative technology behind the Access’s frame and suspension system. The turned-up tail of the V-Frame rolls easily into each step for a smooth gait, while the patented Light-Ride Suspension allows your foot to articulate naturally and cushions impact for smooth striding on hikes that are flat or have little elevation change. For the traction needed for a stable snowshoeing experience, the Access features the Twin-Trac toe crampon that provides grip in all directions as well as Advanced Aft Traction which integrates the sharp-tipped heel cleat with the heel lift for deeper snow penetration. The intuitive Wrapp Trail binding rounds out the design providing a comfortable and secure fit with webbing straps across the forefoot and a TPU heel strap that tighten and loosen easily for a secure fit and quick entry and exit.
