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.

Soft Strike

Soft Strike
The Soft Strike zone on the FLEX NRG works with the FLEX Tail to absorb shock and reduce stress on joints and muscles. The advanced ergonomic design not only improves comfort, but also aids in weighted traction under the heel, as the larger Snow Brake traction element is fixed to the Soft Strike zone. Finally, Soft Strike makes for a quieter overall experience while snowshoeing.

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

180 Pro Binding

180 Pro Binding
Our most robust 180™ Series binding, the gender-specific 180Profeatures extended rigid Control Wings™, a locking heel strapand a contoured, padded upper for pressure-free comfort andadded warmth.

Traction

Traction Rails

Traction Rails
Carbon steel toe crampon, ergonomically placed under foot, maximizes weighted traction and responsiveness while 3D curved Traction Rails ensure superior side-hill grip in hard or icy conditions. Progressive molded Snow Brakes, on the deck as well as the Soft Strike zone, improve weighted traction.

      I love these shoes. They are my first. Very easy to set bindings and get on and off. Best for packed snow and ice. Excellent on hills and rolling terrain. Very easy to walk and maneuver with. Exceptionally comfortable to walk in. I wish they came in a larger size. Flotation in powder snow could be an issue for anyone over 200 pounds. Great value for price paid.

                  I bought these after trying a friend's last year. Last winter, a good year for snow here in Maine, was my first year snowshoeing and I got the bug.

                  I can't compare to other models, but am very satisfied with these. Absolutely no quality issues to date.

                  I do agree that these might not be a first choice for deeper snow, but on packed or groomed trails terrific. Also, they dig in and this is great particularly when descending.

                      Comments about Tubbs Snowshoes Men's FLEX NRG Snowshoe:

                      I researched extensively before buying the NRG. Comfort and Ease of putting on and off were deciding factors. I was a bit concerned about the size and potential floatation shortcomings. I weigh around 210 w/o all the winter gear, but have found that even in very deep powder I can walk well enough. Even though I may sink in perhaps 10 inches down since the snow is powdery it is also light so the effort to raise the foot up is negligible. The smaller surface area works to an advantage. And for me the smaller size is effortless. You walk with a normal gait and not bow-legged as many complain about wider/longer shoes.

                      Having recently moved into Northern Michigan I use my NRGs almost everyday no matter what the conditions - and we get SNOW around here!

                      Highly Recommended.

                          I purchased these for myself and a pair of the women's design for my wife about a month ago. So far we love them. These are our first snowshoes. We should have purchased some years ago. We use them for fitness and day hikes in the state lands and forests near our home in central NY. The terrain is rolling hills. We haven't tried them on anything very steep yet. We use them just about every day. The snow has ranged from packed to about a foot of powder and we've had no problems. The bindings are about as easy to use as they could be. We just adjusted them to our hiking boots and haven't adjusted them since. There was no learning curve as far as using them, just strap them on and start walking. I chose these shoes because the Tubbs website recommended them for the use I anticipated giving them, because the bindings looked easy to use and very functional, and because some friends had purchased Tubbs Ventures a few weeks before and recommended them. The only thing I don't like about the shoes is that they are a little noisy on hard snow. Unless there are durability issues that haven't shown themselves yet I highly recommend these snowshoes.

                              Works great for an all around durable snowshoe, my only complaint is that they will have a tougher time going through deep powder, but they handle anything under foot of snow great. I also wish they would put the same binding on the Flex NRG that they use on the Flex Alp, The Alp binding looks a little nicer.

                              I use these shoes in light snow and broken trails. They are so much easier to walk in than my 36" shoes once the trail is broken down. I use them with size 11 pack boots and the bindings are a little snug but are very easy on and off. They are great for up and down steep hills. I have had them for about a month

                                Comments about Tubbs Snowshoes Men's FLEX NRG Snowshoe:

                                Finally got some snow. Have used these flex NRG snowshoes twice now in 5" of fresh power and on semi packed trails. These shoes let you walk with your natural stride. I was walking at 108 steps per minute on the back semi packed trails. Only 3 steps less than my summer walk on dry pavement!!!Got my 5 and 1/2 mile walk in 2hr and 15 min. only about 15 min. longer than when no snow. Want to jog. No problem. No crossing over and stepping on your other shoe. Sold my aluminum framed shoes. You will not be disappointed. Easy off with this binding. Matter of seconds. Takes me a slightly longer to put them on. I am 65 and not as limber as I used to be. You may want to wear gators. After my walks I had snow about 10" up on my legs.
