Springy with free energy return!

My direct mount setup with the Race Wave is so fun! When I punch through the snow, the band under my foot springs me out to into my next stride like a trampoline. I don’t experience this sensation with any other brands of snowshoes. I feel very efficient and weightless. Definitely worth trying out! So happy with my new training and race setup.

Super fast and fun!

Light and fit my shoes!

Nice product! I would recommend it to my friends in Japan, since Northan light is still not well known in Japan. Thanks

I liked the reduced weight

I liked the reduced weight of the shoes. But when I started mounting my running shoes with the direct mount kit, the bag containing the parts was missing the snow release plates for the front cleats-hmmm. Maybe it won’t make a difference. Took them out to run a 5 mile snowshoe race and ended up with snow balling up on the front cleats. I guess they do make a difference. Also, parts bag was missing 2 of the lock nuts-trip to the hardware store. Sent an email, as requested by the website, but still haven’t heard from them. A little disappointed in the customer service and quality control. I’ll try them in another race, but really considering a different brand :confused:

Hi Kyle, a meme we of our customer team will be reaching out to make sure you get the parts that were missing. We will also include a snowshoe storage bag for the trouble.

Named one of Outside Magazine's Best Snowshoes of 2022, the Race Wave is by far the lightest traditional racing snowshoe on the market worn by world class athletes and champions such as Joseph Gray, Anthony Kunkel and others.

For the last two decades, Northern Lites has been at the forefront of Racing Snowshoes with the lightest, most durable, full-featured snowshoes on the market.  The Race Wave evolved from taking our Race snowshoe and cutting weight wherever possible, mainly by keeping the deck as slim-profile as possible while maintaining durability.
