Snowshoeing is a fantastic outdoor activity up in the country. The issue we seem to have with traditional snowshoes is that we are to able to comfortably walk on such wide surfaces attached to our feet. This unnatural feeling prevents us from walking correctly and even tires us out more quickly.
Claiming the silver International Design Excellence award, designer Eric Brunt has successfully redesigned the traditional snowshoe. His concept snowshoe automatically expands and contracts its surface, providing a more natural walk, and that is even capable of adapting to variable snow conditions and terrains.
