Named after Tubbs Snowshoes’ inaugural year, the 1906 Series evokes an appreciation for nature. This series is as much a testament to the brand’s successful history in snowshoe manufacturing as it is an opportunity to inspire the modern demographic of young, urban professionals that flee to the wilderness for weekend getaways.

The flagship model of the 1906 Series, the Boundary Peak snowshoe was named in honor of Boundary Peak, the tallest peak in the region that towers over northern Maine, where founder, Walter F. Tubbs handcrafted his first pair of Tubbs Snowshoes. Honoring Walter’s commitment to craftsmanship, the Boundary Peak was designed for utility and grace with its polished aluminum frame for strength in varied terrain, and its REACT LTD™ binding to keep you comfortable and secure in all terrain.

Key features of the Boundary Peak snowshoe include:

The Boundary Peak – MSRP $249.95

  • Frame: Pro-Step Frame with SoftTec decking for the perfect blend of flotation and durability
  • Articulation: Rotating Toe Cord with Rotation Limiter to reduce cardio-respiratory strain by 7 percent
  • Traction: Cobra™ crampons for confident footing in variable snow conditions
  • Binding: ReAct™ LTD bindings for a proven, secure fit with rich leather detailing
  • Weight/Pair: 4.5 lbs / 2.04 kg (25”)

Tubbs Snowshoes’ new Boundary Peak snowshoe will be introduced at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Market and ISPO industry tradeshows before being made available to select retail shops in the fall of 2015.
