For the last decade, Northern Lites has been at the forefront of Racing Snowshoes with the lightest, most durable, full-featured snowshoes on the market. As one of the pioneers of "Direct Mounting", our snowshoes provide reduced weight and a more natural running stride for high performance athletes. This innovative approach to snowshoe running has now become well established for athletes at the highest levels of the sport. The Race Wave takes this concept one step further with USSSA and WSSF compliant snowshoes that weigh only 610 grams per pair! When you're ready to take on the world, the Race Wave Direct Mounts are the snowshoes to get you there! This model may be also ordered with the the new Northern Lites Speed Binding when you need to use multiple types of footwear or when you need the ultimate convenience for getting your snowshoes on and off quickly.
