How to Choose the Right Shoe, Gold or Silver
Both series of snowshoes have the Crescent Moon SPL (Single Pull Loop) binding but with different buckles. It has been recognized as the best binding year after year by the media, testers and customers alike. The all foot encompassing binding system is made of a flexible polymer which wraps around your foot and provides excellent support and comfort and will not come out of adjustment. It is a quick and easy entry and exit even with gloves on.
Our Tear Drop shaped frame provides outstanding maneuverability without loss of floatation. This unique shape allows you to walk and run naturally without changing your stride or waddling. The frames are made with 6063 aircraft grade aluminum tubing and TIG welded for strength. The decking is lightweight, durable, highly abrasion resistant, and quiet, noticeably different from plastic snowshoes.
The aggressive 3 crampon traction system provides outstanding grip in all terrains particularly on climbs and traverses. Crescent Moon is the only snowshoe company to have a toe claw which is important for digging in when climbing hills or mountains and helps with push-off when hiking or running.
