The FLEX ALP snowshoe is designed for tough backcountry terrain. This snowshoe tackles steep icy terrain with Tubbs' most aggressive traction yet. The integrated heel lift helps ease calf strain on those long up hills, while the new streamlined deck shape makes it very maneuverable in tight situations.
- Fits up to men's boot size 13
- ActiveFLEX Binding features control wings which provide lightweight control, support, comfort and ease of use.
- Viper 2.0 Carbon Steel Toe Crampon has aggressive concave tangs to provide a scooping action on soft snow and grip on hard pack and ice.
- Curved Traction Rails ensure side-hill grip on hard pack and icy terrain, and the curved shape keeps contact with the ground on steeper terrain.
- The FLEX Tail allows the snowshoe to roll more naturally underfoot and it absorbs shock from the initial heel strike, reducing stress on the knees, ankles, and hips.
- ActiveLift 19 degree backcountry heel lift is ideal for extreme slopes.
- Rotating toe cord allows the tail of the snowshoe to drop shedding snow and reducing strain, Rotation Limiter prevents over-rotation.
- Torsion Deck enhances traction biomechanics and comfort on uneven terrain.
i am trying to decide between the tubbs apl 24 and the msr lightning ascent, the tubbs binding appears easier but the msr seem to have better traction and weight allowance (i am 190lbs) any suggestions?

The Lightning 25 will support greater weight than the 24 because of the extra length. Traction is pretty much the same. The binding on the MSR is simple and effective.
