For years our customers have asked if we would produce an aluminum snowshoe kit designed for the "urban" trails that abound in our city and county park systems. And while we continue to produce our internationally known wood frame, back country, "expedition" snowshoes and kits, we are very pleased to offer three sizes of aluminum frame snowshoe kits as well. The U-30 is our largest, the U-25 for lighter adults and the U-22 is our children's model and a great way to introduce kids to snowshoeing.
Our "Urban Snowshoe" kits have had many years of R&D and field testing. Their frames are aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum. The traditional lacing patterns in our super-strong, super-light material are simple and quickly finished. A well-proven, quick-adjust binding is included. Three coats of a varnish and they're ready to go, at a fraction of the price. And - they are lighter than most any synthetic-decked snowshoe!
All our Urban Snowshoe kits come with:
Our unique "TechDeck" Lacing material, the same as in our expedition snowshoes
Complete lacing patterns and finishing instructions.
Ratchet-style buckle bindings for quick and easy adjustment
