DECENT FEATURES of the Tubbs Men's Flex ESC Snowshoe
FLEX Tail: The patented FLEX Tail technology allows the snowshoe to roll more naturally underfoot from heel strike to toe off. The FLEX Tail absorbs shock from the initial heel strike, reducing the amount of stress on ankles, knees and hips
Torsion Deck: Tubbs' advanced Torsion Deck design adapts to variable snow conditions underfoot. The deck allows torsional articulation throughout the body of the snowshoe, enhancingtraction, biomechanics and comfort on uneven terrain
Rotating Toe Cord: The Rotating Toe Cord design enables the tail of the snowshoe to drop, shedding snow off the tail and reducing cardio-respiratory strain by 7%. The underfoot pivot point also allows the teeth on the toe traction to bite deeply into the snow when weighted
Rotating Toe Rotation Limiter: The Rotating Toe Cord design enables the tail of the snowshoe to drop, shedding snow and reducing cardio-respiratory strain by 7%, while a Rotation Limiter prevents over-rotation
Quick FLEX: The molded Quick FLEX binding is gender-specific with patented Control Wings to center the boot. A dual-pull strap system secures fit while a cinch pull strap makes entry and exit easy The heel strap pulls tight against the boot, centering and securing it in position. women's size 5-11
Traction Rails: The 3D-Curved Traction Rails ensure superior side-hill grip in hard packed and icy conditions. The curved shape helps prevent fore-aft slippage on steeper terrain by avoiding the "saw blade" effect. The Traction Rails are curved up at the tip to provide traction during toe off without causing you to trip

Great Product! I definitely recommend!My friend and I both bought these snowshoes and we take them everywhere! Because of the side grips, the stability is incredible and you definitely feel like you can climb up, down, over and around anything. They are also really nice because when climbing up a hill you don't feel like you have to dig the front into the ground. The whole snowshoe feels connected to the ground. The straps are extremely easy to use and the heel strap stays nice and snug the whole time. They are lightweight, easy to transport and super fun to use! I keep them in my car all the time.

Great snowshoes at a good priceI've never snowshoed before, but took these ESCs on a camping trip last weekend and really liked them. They're lightweight, easy to carry, and the cleats are solid and give you good traction on the snow and ice. ,,,,To me though, the pull straps are the best feature on these snowshoes. ,,,,I tried on a pair Tubbs Flex RDGs at the Moosejaw in East Lansing and almost bought them because of the "Boa Closure System" - which is sweet btw - but I really didn't want to spend the extra money on my first pair of snowshoes, so I took a chance on these ESCs and I'm glad I did. ,,,,The pull straps are easy to tighten down, and they stay snug while you wear them. When you're done, they loosen really quickly and come off really easily. I may upgrade to the RDGs someday, but I am really happy with my decision to get the ESCs. ,,

durable, portable, and solidThese have been great for me so far. I got them for a song on clearance and it was a purchase I'd make again. Haven't had any really soft stuff to try them out on, but I think they'll do just fine.
