When it comes to backcountry traction, the Flex ALP ups the ante with micro-serrated 3D-Curved Traction Rails and the Viper™ 2.0 toe crampon, bringing the grip needed on the more intense terrain and snow conditions of the backcountry.
Getting in and out of these snowshoes is now easier than ever thanks to the ActiveFit™ 2.0 binding. Featuring an easy to grip TPU cinch strap which reduces friction and ice buildup and our EZ Heel Buckle, this binding holds your foot securely while allowing for a quick entry and exit. Uneven and sidehill terrain are no match for the Flex ALP’s Torsion Deck™ technology that allows torsional articulation throughout the body of the snowshoe to enhance traction and preserve your natural gait. Finally, the ActiveLift™ 19° heel lift provides extra support on steeper ascents making the Flex ALP a go-to for backcountry travel.

TORSION DECK™: Tubbs’ advanced Torsion Deck™ allows torsional articulation throughout the body of the snowshoe, enhancing traction, preserving your natural gait, and improving comfort on uneven terrain.
FLEX TAIL™: The patented FLEX Tail™ technology allows the snowshoe to roll more naturally from heel to toe. The FLEX Tail™ absorbs shock from the heel strike, reducing the amount of stress on joints.
ROTATING TOE CORD LIMITER ARTICULATION SYSTEM: The Rotating Toe Cord design enables the tail of the snowshoe to drop, shedding snow and reducing cardio-respiratory strain by 7%, while a Rotation Limiter prevents over-rotation.
ACTIVELIFT™: Designed to make steep ascents easier, the ActiveLift™ heel lift reduces calf fatigue and Achilles tendon strain. It can be easily pulled up and down. The 19° Backcountry heel lift is ideal for extreme ascents, while the 16° Day Hiking version is designed for moderate terrain.
ACTIVE FIT™ 2.0 BINDING: The ActiveFit™ 2.0 binding features a TPU cinch strap for ease of entry, control and support while staying secure. The TPU cinch straps decreases friction and ice build up. To release the binding, just pull up on the pull strap. The EZ Heel Buckle is single handed convenience while ensuring all-day comfort. Replace your binding straps easily with a tool-less strap replacement.
VIPER™ 2.0 CARBON STEEL TOE CRAMPON:: The Viper™ 2.0 carbon steel toe crampon’s jagged tooth construction maximizes weighted traction and responsiveness. The aggressive tangs in the toe crampon deliver an added degree of security on variable snow.
3D-CURVED TRACTION RAILS: The 3D-Curved Traction Rails ensure superior sidehill grip in hard-packed and icy conditions. The curved shape helps prevent fore-aft slippage on steeper terrain.
