Crescent Moon Magnesium 9 Snowshoes(Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2008) - 1
Crescent Moon Magnesium 9 Snowshoe

Crescent Moon’s new Magnesium 9 snowshoes come in at just under 3 pounds for the pair, yet feature a ratcheting heel strap, “one-pull” front binding and a set of aggressive aluminum crampons under both forefoot and heel.

With dimensions of 9″x27″ and capable of supporting 195 lbs, the Magnesium 9s should be a good match for varied terrain and most snow types Bob should encounter other than deep powder.

As a bonus, they’re made primarily from recycled and recyclable components, and the decking is made of a material that contains no PVCs, yet is stronger by weight than the decking material it replaced.
