SYMBIOZ - FOR A NATURAL STRIDEBack
The Snowshoe of the future is born.
The user’s stride has always had to adapt to the structure and shape of the snowshoe. But take a moment to imagine the opposite. Imagine that the snowshoe has to adapt to your foot, your stride and the terrain in which you are walking. Imagine that each step is unrestricted... Imagine lightness, grip and a totally natural foot movement during your winter walks... Imagine yourself quite simply in total symbiosis with nature. STOP! No need to imagine any more... The product now exists... Remember the name: TSL SYMBIOZ.
HYPERFLEX CONCEPT FOR A NATURAL STRIDE
Hyper-flexible and lightwieght with an ergonomic binding, the Symbioz adapts to the unevenness of the terrain to give extraordinary traction. The inserts provide elasticity and responsiveness and to offer a feeling of freedom.
For the first time, TSL has used a design containing reinforcements each having their function that are essential to the effectiveness of the Hyperflex concept. They support the product’s distortion constraints during walking and give the Symbioz its overall qualities: flexibility, rigidity, elasticity and light weight.
Carbon reinforcements store energy during the flexing phase and restore it at the end of the stride to increase stride power and reduce effort and vibration. Distortion of the Symbioz Elite frame is progressive, responsive, precise and uniform in both the bending and twisting phases.
Texalium reinforcements allow effort to be transmitted evenly across the whole frame. They give the Symbioz Expert a high level of elasticity for harmonious suppleness and excellent stride absorption.
Thermoplastic reinforcements support the Symbioz Hiker distortion constraints to provide a natural stride in both the bending and twisting phases.
NEVER HAS A SNOWSHOE OFFERED SUCH OUTSTANDING GRIP. Combined with the vertical blades, the stainless steel bidirectional crampons placed under the foot give incredible traction (uphill), excellent grip (downhill) and perfect drift control (incline). The flexible frame follows the shape of the terrain, provides superb stability and complete safety to avoid sudden sliding in powder snow.
The front teeth provide maximum traction on steep slopes.
8 large independent claws in stainless steel for abrasion resistants (inspired by mountaineering crampons) are always located under the support points of the foot for all the shoe sizes, thus avoiding the loss of energy. They provide excellent traction [uphill], traction [downhill] and great sidehill grip [downhill slope] all the time during the trek.
The vertical blades provide superb traction and control on inclines or steep slopes in soft or compact snow.
BINDINGS / COMFORT
GLOBAL MEMORY BINDING : The Symbioz range provides a complete memory system for the shape of the shoe (size and front volume). This gives excellent control of the foot across a wide range of sizes and in all types of situations. Once these pre-adjustments have been made, the snowshoe can be put on easily and quickly before each outing.
The Easy Ascent heel lift is incorporated into the binding and is activated by simply pushing downward with your pole. Also, during ascents, you will not have any feeling of discomfort under your foot as your weight is spread across the entire heel of the binding.
