Update on Faber Aerobic Snowshoes and Sommet Snowshoes

Popular Faber Aerobic snowshoes are great for running or all around trail use.

In 2013, Faber introduced the Run snowshoe. Following the comments of runners, from the most competitive to the fitness enthusiast, we split the category in 2 snowshoes for 2014-2015: the Aerobic and the Challenge
Weighing in at a mere 2.15 lbs and featuring traction with some real bite, the Aerobic snowshoe is perfect for the fitness enthusiast. Built with the patented traction wing decking and the patented live pivoting system, the snowshoe is made to minimize back kick in order to offer you a good running experience.
The Aerobic is offered in a standard 8’’ x 22’’ size, allowing you to compete in the U.S. and in Canada. The Quattro Zenith buckle binding is combined with an aluminum front crampon to provide an excellent control of the snowshoe while remaining very light.
Not only does our Aerobic can compete at races, but it is also perfect for any trail. Snowshoeing on trails will burn almost as much calories as jogging, so if you love walking and hiking, this snowshoe is for you. Not only will you be able to explore new trails during the winter time, you will also get a better workout and be in better shape.
The small size of this snowshoe also makes it one of the best pack snow condition snowshoe; the Outside Magazine actually named the Run the Best women’s snowshoe of 2013. Here is what they had to say:
“ To get more grip with less bulk, Faber shrank the toe claw and finished the Run’s cleats with stainless-steel spikes (like the tips of hiking poles). There’s enough bite for steep and icy trails, but the Run excelled at everything else, too, including uneven terrain, thanks to the shoe’s split-tail design, which allows each side of the frame to flex independently. “

But have been on backorder due to a shortage of parts but are due in and we expect our next shipment on 1/21/16.

The bad news is that Faber has made the decision to discontinue the Sommet snowshoe. There are still some 8x26" models left but once gone they will be out and discontinued. Get some of the last ones now.
