SEATTLE, Wash. (Jan. 29, 2013) – For mountain adventurers everywhere, Atlas Snow-Shoe Company presents an improved version of its award-winning backcountry snowshoe, the Atlas Aspect. With a new, lighter construction and quick-closure, field-replaceable bindings, the revolutionary new Aspect will take climbers, mountaineers, and backcountry enthusiasts to the next level.

The Atlas Aspect, which received accolades from the press and was awarded Outside Magazine’s Gear of the Year Award for 2012, was specifically engineered for the demands of the backcountry user. Never satisfied, the innovative Atlas engineers set out to improve upon its award-winning design.

The new Aspect features a lighter construction that sheds a ½ pound per pair while ReactiV™-Trac construction provides unparalleled performance on demanding terrain. The redesigned PackFlat™ binding comfortably accommodates larger snowboarding or mountaineering boots and features a new Z-Strap which quickly secures the foot, offers field-replaceable straps, and still packs flat for a quick descent.
