Atlas Montane (2019)
Intended to tackle variable mountainous terrain, the Montane provides strength and articulation for uncompromised technical hiking. This shoe features the Mountain Hiking necessities such as a heel lift bar and Spring-Loaded™ Suspension, but sets itself apart with the Wrapp™ Swift binding which provides comfort, warmth, and easy-to-use straps.
Intended to tackle variable mountainous terrain, the Montane provides strength and articulation for uncompromised technical hiking. With a heel lift bar that eases calf strain, and Spring-Loaded Suspension (SLS) for classic Atlas prevision and articulation.
NYTEX DECKING – Flexible Nytex decking is forgiving and quiet when hiking in the cold, providing durability without the weight.
WRAPP TRAIL BINDING – Comfortable and easy-to-use, the Wrapp™ Trail men’s and women’s bindings are easy to enter and exit while cradling the foot securely.
TRAVERSE TRAC RAILS – The sharp ridges of our side rails augment the downhill function of the heel cleat, running parallel to the snowshoe frame for solid footing, even on firm sidehill terrain.
ALL-TRAC™ TOE CRAMPON – The time-tested geometry of our 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.
SPRING-LOADED SUSPENSION – 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.
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.
