Going snowshoeing feels like more of a necessity for eskimos rather than a fun outing for urbanites, yet that won't be the impression anymore after people lay their eyes on the Fimbulvetr Snowshoe. While some people will conjure up an old tennis racket-like design made out of hardwood frame with rawhide lacings when thinking of a snowshoe, the Fimbulvetr Snowshoe is much sleeker and futuristic.

Made in Norway, the Fimbulvetr Snowshoe is constructed out of Dupont Hytrel, a thermoplastic elastomer known for its combination of flexibility and strength. It is made even more flexible thanks to its honeycomb pattern, which also helps distribute weight evenly on the snow. Finished with an all-direction hinge, lightweight construction, comfortable bindings, and steel Fenris crampons, the Fimbulvetr Snowshoe is quite the design.
