Designed for women from the start, the Elektra 1223 snowshoe benefits from Atlas' extensive research into women's biomechanics. The 7075 ReactiV aluminum frame is specially shaped with outside rolling bends to create a narrower waist and tapered tail that allow a woman's natural stride. The padded Wrapp Pro binding eliminates pressure points to keep your circulation moving and your extremities warm, and FlowTape Silicone straps glide easily through the buckles, even with mittens on. Spring-Loaded Suspension gives the stainless steel prongs and rails of the toe and heel crampons even deeper penetration. The Duratek decking keeps the weight down, and the climbing bar will let you charge to the summit with ease.

How do I choose between the 23 and 27 inch? My shoes size is 6 1/2 american size
Asked on 1/23/2013 by Erin from Montauk, NY
ATLAS recommends the 23 inch if the user is 80-160 lbs. including gear. The 27 inch is recommended for a user who weighs between 120-200 lbs. - the shoe size has nothing to do with it.
