Flotation

Torsion Deck

Torsion Deck
Tubbs’ advanced Torsion Deck™ design adapts to variable snow conditions underfoot. The decks allow torsional articulation throughout the body of the snowshoe, enhancing traction, biomechanics and comfort on uneven terrain.

FLEX Tail

FLEX Tail
The ergonomically and biomechanically designed FLEX Tail absorbs shock from heel strike, reducing the amount of stress on your joints and allowing you to snowshoe farther, longer and with less stress on your body.

Articulation

Rotating Toe Cord - Rotation Limiter

Rotating Toe Cord - Rotation Limiter
Rotating Toe Cord design enables the tail of the snowshoe to drop and snow to shed off the tail, reducing cardio-respiratory strain by 7%. The underfoot pivot point also allows the toe traction teeth to bite deeply into the snow when weighted. A rotation limiter prevents over-rotation and shin bang.

Control

ActiveFLEX Binding

ActiveFLEX Binding
Gender specific, asymmetric ActiveFLEX™ binding featuring patented Control Wings™ provides lightweight control, support, comfort and ease of use. Men’s binding fits up to size 13 boots; women’s size 5- 11.

Traction

Viper 2.0 Crampon

Viper 2.0 Crampon
Viper™ 2.0 carbon steel toe crampon with jagged tooth construction maximizes weighted traction and responsiveness.

      Comments about Tubbs Snowshoes Men's FLEX ALP Snowshoe:

      The Tubbs alps model was a perfect choice for me to teuck around in the woods, where paths are not established, and gather sap buckets. They are lightweight yet rugged enough to carry two full five gallon pails. While they arr on your feet you firget they are there qmd you can do your w ork without having to struggle with your shoes. The cramp ons are agressive and saved me a lot if falls. I love my Tubbs! I did not like that they were noUS made. I bought tubbs btand because I thought they were a US friendly company.

              Comments about Tubbs Snowshoes Men's FLEX ALP Snowshoe:

              I had the opportunity to use different types of snowshoes. My first Tubbs were Venture. I liked how they performed, they were lightweight, durable and manouverable. They did not have the greatest grip, however and were not the best for steep terrain. FLEX perform really well on very steep terrain with superior grip and traction. The heel support is awesome and makes steep ascents really easy. FLEX are very light but give you a sense of great security. They look very durable - I have not owned them that long so can't tell how long they will last. All-in-all I love my new FLEX snowshoes and I highly recommend them to snowshoeing enthusiasts. Both novice and expert snowshoers will like them.

                    I liked how this snowshoe performed on steep snow/icy terrain. I've had them through 2.5 seasons, but a crampon broke this weekend. It snapped off where the crampon attaches to the metal side track. I checked the other snowshoe and noticed hairline cracks in that crampon as well. A companion also had the same issue with her Flex Alps. My experience with these snowshoes questions their durability. I hope the company rectifies this issue and uses a sturdier crampon.

                            i've owned and used these showshoes for 3 years now. they are a delight. easy to get into, easy to adjust and easy to get out of. best of all, they're light and have awesome traction. the 24" model is great for most snow conditions. i recently bought the 28" (XL) model for deeper snow. they work great, and are still quite light. the flex capability of these snowshoes really helps as does the heel-lift (especially going up a steep hill for an extended distance--it's like climbing stairs with no strain on your calves!). these snowshoes are the best.

                              Comments about Tubbs Snowshoes Men's FLEX ALP Snowshoe:

                              I have been using the Flex Alp snowshoes for about 3 seasons now and I must say that they are the best snowshoe that I have used in any of my adventures.

                              The Flex Alps offer the mountaineer and backcountry adventurer a lightweight, agile and ergonomically-correct shoe that will offer all the aggressive grip required for any ascent/decent. The flexible deck really helps in conforming to the terrain for better grip and limiting the uncomfortable position that many other shoes place your feet in to grip adequately. The Alps offer an agressive crampon underfoot, along with rails that are designed to effectively grip and limit any fore/aft slippage when climbing/decending.

                              An often overlooked feature is how well the binding holds the foot and how easy it is to enter and release. Tubbs offers a very effective system that allows boots of all sizes (except for some extremely large winter boots) to be used with this snowshoe. The strapping is quickly adjustable and doesn't put any unnecessary pressure over the foot, but holds over the ball of the foot and straps around the heel to keep the boot fully locked in.

                              Underfoot, this snowshoe offers a lift bar for those long climbs. Believe me, your calves will thank you! They stay locked in both the upper and lower positions, so you will not have to worry about the bar unexpectedly flipping down while in use.

                              Overall, these are the best shoes you can buy and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a lightweight, agile and dependable shoe in all conditions. I have used my shoes in all terrains and elevations and I must say that they have never failed me in any way and will continue to take me to many high peaks throughout the winter seasons.
