A Little About Redfeather:
Redfeather Snowshoes was founded in 1988 by a snow-bound triathlete with the idea of designing a better snowshoe that would allow racers
to train during the snowy Colorado winter months. His original design became the legendary Redfeather Redtail, the lightweight aluminum
V-tail snowshoe that transformed snowshoeing from an awkward mode of transportation into the modern sport that we all know today.
Located in La Crosse, WI, Redfeather continues to strive for technical innovation, performance, and unsurpassed quality in all of its
snowshoes and product lines.
1988: Redfeather introduces the first lightweight aluminum V-tail design snowshoe that revolutionizes the sport of snowshoeing and fuels
the popularity of snowshoe racing throughout the country. 1990’s: Snowshoeing gains popularity nationwide. Redfeather continues its innovative
ways by introducing several new snowshoe bindings, including the Epic Binding, the first ratchet binding system on a snowshoe and the
popular ATB strapped binding system. Redfeather was also the first snowshoe company to offer interchangeable bindings and crampons on all
models. Development of the Live Action Hinge, which springs back after each step, is a breakthrough that allows people to walk with a natural
stride, thereby reducing fatigue on long outings. The company rounds out its line by adding several price-point models, including rounded tail
recreational snowshoes for people just getting started in the sport. As more and more families get into the sport, Redfeather introduced the
popular Snowpaw, the first kid’s snowshoe that leaves animal tracks in the snow.
