The new Atlas Montane men’s snowshoe was designed to handle variable mountainous terrain. The essential strength of the V-Frame™ design and time-tested Spring-Loaded™ Suspension system provides a sturdy and versatile platform for the Montane’s comfortable, precision-fit Wrapp™ Swift binding, with the added bonus of heel lift bar to ease calf strain. Don’t let a steep summit turn you around – keep going on the Atlas Montane.

HEEL LIFT BAR
On steep climbs, calf muscles tire quickly and traction decreases when your foot matches the slope angle. The heel lift bar eases fatigue and ties directly into Advanced Aft Traction for grip.
WRAPP SWIFT BINDING
Built on the renowned fit and arch support of the Wrapp™ platform, the Wrapp™ Swift binding blends technical fit with great comfort and ease of use from the positive toe locator, warm EVA padding, and straps that cinch and release like a breeze.
An Atlas tenet from the beginning, Atlas' patented Spring-Loaded™ Suspension (SLS) keeps the snowshoe close underfoot for easy maneuvering and suspends your foot so it can move freely with its intended articulation. The suspension absorbs impact and lets your foot flex naturally side-to-side for a comfortable, stable position on traverses and uneven terrain. SLS enhances traction control too, as the flex provides deeper crampon penetration into the slope, especially on steep or off-angle terrain.
A proprietary Atlas shape, the sturdy aluminum V-Frames are the key to an efficient, natural stride. The V shape tracks straight in deep snow, and the tapered tail pulls less snow as you step forward, saving your energy. The turned-up tail of the V-frame rolls easily into each step for a natural gait. Built with lightweight, durable 6000- and 7000-series aluminum, the V-frames are used on all Atlas snowshoes, including the new Youth Series.
ALL-TRAC™ TOE CRAMPON
The time-tested geometry of the All-Trac™ toe crampon provides traction in all directions. Wider traction tabs on the sides and corners complement sharp front and rear points for confident hiking.
TRAVERSE TRAC RAILS
The sharp ridges of the side rails augment the downhill function of the heel cleat, running parallel to the snowshoe frame for solid footing, even on firm sidehill terrain.
Flexible Nytex decking is forgiving and quiet when hiking in the cold, providing durability without the weight.
