All FLIGHTdeck TS models come equipped with the TWO STEP (TS) traction system, a universal snowshoe binding that doubles as a traction device when not clicked into the deck. This universal cleated binding has sturdy adjustable side supports, adjustable instep support and secure straps to accommodate a range of footwear, including snowboard boots, offering enthusiasts exceptional traction without the use of a snowshoe. 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 entire Kahtoola collection of performance footwear traction will be on display in Kahtoola's newly expanded booth at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market trade show in Salt Lake City, January 21-25, 2009. Booth 9035.

“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.
