Elf (Teal)( Snowshoes | Youth )

$79.95

The Elf™ is designed for the 5 to 9 year old and looks “just like Mom and Dad’s snowshoes.” In fact, the Elf™ has many of the features built in to our adult snowshoes. This 17” western roundtail design provides great stability on the snow, while the Live Action Hinge provides all the agility and mobility any kid could hope for.

The Youth Binding is a flexible and secure binding which features lateral support, quick adjusting, mid section and heel straps. Our Aluminum front and rear crampons have superior bite for traction and stability. The Rip Stop Vinyl decking provides superior puncture and abrasion resistance that stays soft in sub-zero temperatures.

Sizing Chart

sizeChart

When choosing a snowshoe shoe size isn’t all that important. They are rated for the weight of the person. 20 inch youth models go up to maximum of 80 pounds, 21 inch snowshoes go up to 125 pounds, 22 inch go up to 150 pounds, 25 inch are rated up to 175 pounds, 30 inch shoes go up to 220 pounds, and 35 or 36 inch snowshoes are rated for over 220 pounds. The typical round tail snowshoe is a little better snowshoe for deep powdery snow and the V-Tail snowshoes are a little easier to walk in. Women’s snowshoes are generally about 1 inch narrower than men’s. Women generally have a narrower stride than men. Remember to add the weight of your clothes and a pack if you plan to carry one when snowshoeing. The boots you wear depend on what type of use. Redfeather would recommend warmer ones for walking or hiking and lighter ones for aggressive snowshoeing or running. This is a general sizing guide for those who need help figuring out what will be the best snowshoe size for you.

 

If you are planning on snowshoeing on trails or older more packed snow and you are close in weight to the next size down you can certainly use the smaller size. If you snowshoe in the back country with more powdery snow you definitely need to keep to the sizing ratings for weight.

 

If you look over all this information and still are uncertain talk to the professionals.

 

Contact a Redfeather dealer or Redfeather direct and usually they can put you on the right track.
