Advertorial: Atlas Snowshoes Engineered to Deliver?

No one demands more from their gear than an Atlas customer. That’s why we engineer, test and build each snowshoe to deliver performance and comfort in the harshest mountain conditions.


Founded to bring snowshoeing into the modern age, Atlas has maintained a devotion to technology and performance that has resulted in 19 patents – from our original heel cleats and Spring-Loaded Suspension to our latest ReactiV frames. That commitment is why Atlas is the leader in technical, performance snowshoes, and no product exemplifies the industry standard like the Atlas 12 Series and Elektra 12 Series.

For hikers looking to explore deep into the mountains, the Atlas 12 Series and Elektra 12 Series snowshoes are designed to handle anything you find between the trailhead and the summit. With our most recent patent, the variable forming of our 7075 aluminum ReactiV frame changes from a cylindrical to an elliptical shape to increase strength where the frame bears the greatest loads for a stiffer, more responsive snowshoe frame.

Backcountry-proven, the Spring-Loaded Suspension provides deeper penetration of the stainless steel Holey-1 Toe Crampon, and its unique four-point attachment provides a fail-safe binding attachment. Duratek decking is quiet and forgiving, with additional abrasion resistance, and you’ll walk confidently with the aggressive Advanced Aft Traction providing sure footing on all terrain.

Our most technical snowshoe is our most comfortable as well. The men’s and women’s Wrapp Pro bindings feature FlowTape silicone straps that glide through low-friction buckles with a smooth buckle release for easy on-off use. Extensive biomechanics research led to the development of our Elektra women’s frame, with outside rolling bends, a narrower waist and a tapered tail that refuse to compromise on a woman’s natural stance and gait.

As the premiere brand for technical, performance snowshoes, Atlas is proud to support professional organizations like the American Mountain Guides Association, and non-profit backcountry advocacy groups like Winter Wildlands Alliance. Whether through product or community action, Atlas is committed to ensuring peaceful exploration of wild winter terrain for all to enjoy.
