Designed for kids but built with adult's snowshoes technology, the North Kid is lightweight, easy to use and durable. This series of kid snowshoes are made of aluminum tubing 6061-T6 of 5/8 inch diameter reducing the weight of the snowshoe without compromising its strength. These snowshoes are equipped with a TPR binding featuring a toe box and an easy to use sliding ratchet buckle, completed with a very efficient 3/4 inches aluminum crampon. The binding is assembled on our patented Live pivot made of urethane coated webbing. This pivot uses the same technology as our racing snowshoe, offering a full rotation which eases every step, making the snowshoe the most pleasant for the smallest. This kid snowshoe is assembled on a patented WTD decking with traction wings made of copolymer which is specifically formulated to resist low-temperature impacts (-40 Celsius). Its rigidity is due to the torsion of the wings which, besides offering optimum traction, creates oriented exit holes to discharge snow from the deck. The open rear end avoids dragging effect while walking.
