SEATTLE – (January 23, 2013)Tubbs Snowshoes has reinvented their kids’ line of snowshoes for 2013, bringing the technology and ease of use from their pinnacle adult models to smaller children’s-specific designs. The new models come in fun colors that kids will love, with easy-to-use, comfortable bindings so that kids and parents can enjoy hassle-free fun in the snow all day long. The new kids’ line can be seen at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2013, Tubbs booth #35113.

“We’ve really taken kids and parents into account in the redesign of our children’s snowshoes this year,” said Sarah Rose, marketing manager, Tubbs Snowshoes. “With changes like more ergonomic frames, easier heel straps on the bindings and fun new colors, these new designs are sure to be a hit next winter.”

The completely redesigned Glacier snowshoe is sure to please “tweeners” headed on adventures with the family. The QuickLock2™ binding locks easily and stays snug around the boot, providing security and comfort. Because kids deserve the same ergonomic benefits as adults, Tubbs added the popular Fit-Step™ frame. For fast-moving kids playing in snow, the improved Glacier’s tighter frame shape accommodates a kid’s narrower stance, and a fixed toe cord helps the snowshoes stay close to the foot. With trademark Tubbs technology and comfort, this is one snowshoe designed to keep kids outside and active all winter long. MSRP: $89.95

The Flex Jr. is designed for kids ages 6-10 years old and brings the award-winning FLEX Tail™ design to kids. 3D-Curved Traction Rails with rounded corners give kids safe, go-anywhere grip, and the simple Quicklock™ binding – with its updated, easy-stretch heel strap – lets kids take control. In packed or variable snow conditions the FLEX Jr. is appropriate for all weights. In powder snow conditions the FLEX Jr. is best for kids 40-90lbs/18-41kg. MSRP: $59.95
