For technical snowshoeing and for extremely icy and rocky conditions, the Dura-Alum cleats used in Northern Lites' standard snowshoes can be marginal in providing the needed traction. In response to requests from customers, Northern Lites developed the Predator models incorporating a highly aggressive, stainless steel cleat system. These cleats are actually quite similar to ice climbing crampons, modified to work with the flotation of a snowshoe deck. They are perfect for the challenging conditions of extreme snowshoeing. As expected, these cleats are a bit heavier than the standard cleats but still weigh less than any other comparable snowshoe. These snowshoes may be ordered with the traditional Northern Lites TruTrak binding system or the new Northern Lites Speed Binding when you need the ultimate convenience for getting your snowshoes on and off quickly. Both Binding Systems are highly effective and reliable, providing positive and consistent attachment to your footwear. In the event of damage to the cleats, these are user-replaceable and also backwards compatible with our standard cleats. We even include a set of our standard cleats in the event you want to save weight on less challenging excursions.
