Allowing you to maximize your natural gait on rolling and uneven terrain, the Access delivers comfort and confidence to its wearer, thanks to a heel-lift bar, Wrapp™ Trail binding, and Light-Ride™ Suspension.
Heel Lift: Yes
Suspension: Light-Ride Suspension
Snowshoe Series: All Mountain
V-Frame™: A proprietary Atlas shape, the sturdy aluminum V-Frame™ is 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 6061-series aluminum, the V-frames™ are used on all Atlas snowshoes, including their new Youth Series.
Light-Ride™ Suspension: Light-Ride™ Suspension (LRS) is the perfect blend of comfort and function, allowing your foot to articulate naturally and cushioning impact for smooth striding on mellower terrain.
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.
Nytex Decking: Flexible Nytex decking is forgiving and quiet when hiking in the cold, providing durability without the weight.
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.
Twin-Trac™ Toe Crampon: Sure footing on two planes, the Twin-Trac™ toe crampon uses a sturdy row of front points and two side teeth to keep your foot from twisting.
Advanced Aft Traction: Atlas' surest grip comes from sharp ice tips on the heel cleat with four angled, ridged side rails for superior all-mountain traction. The integrated heel lift bar ties directly into the traction for deeper penetration with each step.
