Tubbs 1906 Series Brings New Vermont-Inspired Model into 2016 Collection

Continuing with its Limited Edition 1906 Series, Tubbs introduces the Mount Mansfield

Seattle, Wash. (December 9, 2015)Tubbs Snowshoes, the leading manufacturer of lightweight, versatile snowshoes, is excited to announce the launch of its second limited edition snowshoe of the 1906 Series, the Mount Mansfield. With inspiration drawn from Tubbs Snowshoes’ Vermont heritage, the Mount Mansfield features a clean aluminum frame with a minimalist aesthetic, befitting of a model designed to provide confidence across varied terrain.

Launched in 2015 and named after Tubbs Snowshoes’ inaugural year, the 1906 Series evokes an appreciation for nature. This series is as much a testament to the brand’s successful history in snowshoe manufacturing as it is an opportunity to inspire the modern demographic of young, urban professionals that flee to the wilderness for weekend getaways.

Inspired by the tallest Vermont peak in the Appalachian rage, the Mount Mansfield showcases Tubbs' attention to detail and commitment to modern innovation with the REACT LTD™ binding to keep you comfortable and secure on both short and longer winter excursions.

Key features of the Mount Mansfield snowshoe include:

The Mount Mansfield – MSRP $249.95
·      Frame: Pro-Step Frame with SoftTec decking for the perfect blend of flotation and durability
·      Articulation: Rotating Toe Cord with Rotation Limiter to reduce cardio-respiratory strain by 7 percent
·      Traction: Cobra™ toe crampon and Tubbs heel crampon for confident footing in variable snow conditions
·      Binding: ReAct™ LTD binding for a proven, secure fit with rich leather detailing
·      Weight/Pair: 4.5 lbs / 2.04 kg (25”)

Tubbs Snowshoes’ new Mount Mansfield snowshoe will be introduced at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Market tradeshow before being made available to select retail shops in the fall of 2016.
