Going uphill - the mountaineer by Tubbs is exactly what you want when chasing after these altitude metres. The aluminium snowshoes are a good choice for hikes on alpine terrain and on expeditions. Thanks to its technical features, the mountaineer snowshoes won the title Testsieger (01/08) of the magazine Outdoor and was elected Gear of the Year 2011 by the Outside magazine.
The extended version 36 is ideal for touring with lots of luggage and powder snow conditions. The more compact version 25 has enhanced flexibility and facilitates taking narrow turns in steep terrains whereas the version 30 is very compromising. Making the right decision on what version to chose, depends on body weight and touring luggage.
A good combination of aggressive Anaconda front points and sharp Python rear teeth guarantee perfect grip on icy snow. The R2 rotation axles ensure that the Tubbs Mountaineer has a large support surface to the underground.
The heel lifts can be activated with a pole without having to bend over. This helps to support the thigh muscles effectively when going uphill. The binding system can easily be operated even with gloves on. Winter sportsmen, looking for a high-quality snowshoe which can be used for demanding touring should take a closer look at the Tubbs Mountaineer!
