When snow abounds, the TS Binding allows users the option to click into one of the three sizes of the FLIGHTdeck™TS. The made in the USA FLIGHTdecks are constructed with durable Hypalon® decking, Stainless Steel traction cleats, 6061 aircraft aluminum frames and feature a firm heel pad riser that enhances the performance and feel.

“The expanded FLIGHTsystem™ product line opens the door to a more versatile, lightweight and adaptable way to hike and run in snow. The FLIGHTdeck™ TS 29 expands the range of the click-in FLIGHTsystem™ snowshoe to include backcountry uses where deeper snow and unbroken trails require a larger snowshoe,” said Danny Giovale, Kahtoola founder and Product Designer.
