Voted “The Best Running Snowshoe” by Backpacker Magazine, The Redfeather Vapor is built for speed. Used by Redfeather’s own Snowshoe Racing Team, as well as by U.S. Olympic Team Trial marathon runners for winter training, The Redfeather Vapor is the snowshoe of choice for runners, trailrunners, and outdoor fitness enthusiasts.
Our lightest snowshoe at only 2.35 lbs. for the pair, The Vapor features a modified, raised V-tail design that virtually eliminates any drag during a running stride. The Hypalon II Cross Country Bindings cinch down to any athletic shoe or hiking boot for flexibility and range of motion. The Vapor’s Hypalon II decking is Redfeather’s lightest, yet strongest technical decking. The final speed ingredient is the titanium crampon/talon system, our lightest, most durable crampon available.
Put it all together in a 6000 Series Aircraft Grade Aluminum frame and you have the fastest shoe on snow. 21 inches long, accommodates up to 190 lbs.
Frame: 6000 Series Aircraft Aluminum Hybrid V-Tail
Deck: Hypalon II – High tech, ultra lightweight, super strong material that is puncture and abrasion resistant and stays soft in sub-zero temperatures.
Crampon: Titanium Crampon System, Redfeather’s lightest crampon-talon system, is also one of the strongest. This is the preferred crampon system for trail running and competitive snowshoe racing.
Binding: The Cross Country Binding, fits any Redfeather snowshoe, and is the lightest of all of the Redfeather binding systems. Made from Hypalon II, Redfeather’s strongest and lightest decking material, the Cross Country incorporates urethane straps that cinch down on steel buckles to secure any running shoe or light hiking shoe.
Hinge: The Live Action Hinge lifts the tail of the snowshoe up with every step, providing the user with a highly mobile and very agile snowshoeing experience.
