Seattle, Wash. (Jan.16, 2012) – Atlas Snow-Shoe Company, the leader in snowshoe innovation, introduces the newly redesigned Speed Series snowshoes. The all-new Race and Run snowshoes will debut at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2012, booth #34101.
Atlas engineers drew inspiration from the experts of the Atlas Racing Team in the complete redesign of the Speed Series. The new Race and Run snowshoes provide a new bar of performance in running snowshoes, designed for those who refuse to settle for second. Utilizing ultralight materials like titanium and 7075 aluminum, Atlas has developed their lightest snowshoes to date, while maintaining the durability seen throughout the line.
“Having raced on Atlas snowshoes for more than 15 seasons, I’ve seen them evolve to become state of the art, lightweight and top-performing running snowshoes,” said Adam Chase, captain of the Atlas Racing Team. “There’s a reason you see them at almost every snowshoe event: they are easy to use, durable, superlight and practically exude energy.”
