Atlas Snowshoes Considers Women's Stride

6/11/2002

By Karen Zekan

The company's new Elektra shoe line is based on studies of a woman's gait and biomechanics. The snowshoes offer lightweight performance with comfortable bindings, built-in arch support, easy use and a natural stride.

Atlas worked with Dr. Paul Scherer of the California College of Podiatric Medicine to create a snowshoe that can comfortably accommodate a woman's stride, taking into consideration clearance issues resulting from an abducted gait not commonly found in men's strides.

The Elektra line, named after the daughter of Atlas in Greek mythology, features soft padding to eliminate pressure-point pain and encourage circulation for feet.

SheGear has not product tested these at this time.
