Louis Garneau USA Launches Snowshoe Collection

Louis Garneau is proud to announce their launch of a snowshoe collection for the US Market for Winter 2010.

Louis Garneau has been manufacturing and perfecting snowshoes in Canada for the past six years, this expertise has led to the introduction of snowshoes in the US for Winter 2010-2011. This comprehensive collection will meet the needs of all athletes including backcountry, day hiking, and trail walking designed for me, women, and youth. Each category will include polymer snowshoes as well as more traditional snowshoes with aluminum frames.

“With our roots in cycling, we have sought ways and activities that not only allow an athlete to train 365 days a year, but a product line that helps our retailers maintain business year round. The introduction of a running line, two year ago, was the start of this philosophy, and we are confidant the snowshoe collection will have the same success.” remarks Marketing Director, Pierre Perron.

The 2010 Snowshoe Collection is designed with user-friendly technology that will bring comfort and performance to your outings. The Ergoshape technology allows for excellent snow evacuation from the heel region in return improving maneuvering in dense terrain and offering an easy natural stride. Bent tails reduce dragging and improve backward motion. The Twin Clip and Ratchet Buckle System are intuitive and mitten-friendly. All harnesses have a 3D contoured shape for maximum foot enclosure and comfort, and crampons have multi-directional teeth for maximum grip.

In particular, the Vector Line is packed with innovation. Four styles (shown on the side) include the following technology that is sure to turn the heads of snow enthusiasts.
