The Race was introduced in 2004 to comply with the new, smaller U.S. Snowshoe Association standard of 120in2minimum surface area. . At the request of a number of nationally ranked women athletes, we are introducing a Women’s version of our Race models. It is structurally identical to the standard Race, but with a more attractive color scheme. Serious racers who understand the need for the lightest snowshoe choose Northern Lites Race for most of today’s courses. However, we’ve been pleased to see that when the snow is deeper or softer, these same racers turn to our Elite models, which are still lighter than many other racing snowshoes.
I have been snowshoe racing for 3 years and I rented a demo model of these snowshoes my first two years and loved them! The bindings are easy to use, the snowshoes are light as air & they feel great while running trail. I finally sprung and bought a pair to call my own and could not be happier. Love that I am supporting a local Wisconsin Business & love the new pink color that you added into your lineup! firstname.lastname@example.org on Jan 10th 2018
Love the pink tubing and grey decking! Very lightweight and they last a lifetime! Sue Henning on Dec 19th 2016
