Inspired by athletes’ spirit of adventure, Austria’s Komperdell has been making ski poles and other alpine gear since 1922. These are the company’s snowshoes, available in Alpinist and Mountaineer styles. Both feature extra-tough, snow-repellent Hypalon decking, a lightweight anodized aluminum frame, fast-click binding, a staple strap system, and stainless steel crampons underneath the ball and heel. The Alpinist style has a U-shaped end that optimized buoyancy, while the Mountaineer style has a V-shaped end that acts like a fin rudder in the snow for optimal traversing and difficult descents. Generally, the smaller size works well for women and teens, while the larger size is ideal for men. The larger size is also well suited for anyone carrying more weight or traveling somewhere (like Utah) with really light, soft snow.
Note: This drop’s base price is for the Alpinist snowshoes in size A25. For an additional $5, you can opt for the Mountaineer snowshoes in size M27 or M30.
