DECENT FEATURES of the Tubbs Men's Flex NRG Snowshoe
Soft Strike: Unique to the FLEX NRG. the Soft Strike zone under your heel absorbs shock and reduces stress on joints and muscles. The advanced ergonornic design not only improves comfort, but also aids in weighted traction with an additional traction element placed underneath
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
Soft Strike: The patented Soft Strike zone works with the FLEX Tail to absorb shock and reduce stress on joints and muscles. Soft Strike also aidsin weighted traction under the heel. Finally, Soft Strike makes for a quieter overall experience while snowshoeing
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
180 Pro: Our most robust 180 Series binding, the gender-specific 180Pro features extended rigid Control Wings, a locking heel strap and a contoured, padded upper for pressure-free comfort and added warmth
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
"The Tubbs Flex NRG's are Lightweight and Super Comfy!"
Tested these out while climbing in some of Utah's white stuff and they were amazing. The binding is super easy to use and makes lacing up painless and quick. My friends with MSR bindings spent considerably more time getting their snowshoes on because they had to spend time with each buckle, whereas I just had a single binding clip and to pull the ankle strap tight and I was off trekking! A design feature that I really Loved was the metal tracks are curved in order to give you more traction as opposed to straight tracks that tend to slide as your descending. Also the flex design seems to give you a moonboot type experience increasing the fun factor! I would recommend them to everyone!
