For technical snowshoeing and for extremely icy and rocky conditions, the Dura-Alum cleats used in our standard snowshoes may not provide the needed traction.
In response to requests from our customers, we developed the Predator models incorporating a highly aggressive, stainless steel cleat system. These cleats are actually quite similar to ice climbing crampons, modified to work with the flotation of a snowshoe deck.
They are perfect for the challenging conditions of extreme snowshoeing. As expected, these cleats are a bit heavier than our standard cleats but still weigh less than any other comparable snowshoe.
In the event of damage to the cleats, these are user-replaceable and also backwards compatible with our standard cleats. We even include a set of our standard cleats in the event you want to save weight on less challenging excursions.
These snowshoes are made upon order, so please allow a few week lead time for our Predator series.
