The Yowie Company claims their radically-different Yowie snowshoes are the world's most agile. They use an injection-moulded flexible deck with an all-over grip, a fast binding and tough crampons. Yowie claims the shoes are used in the Iditasport Extreme in Alaska on snow, and by Army Commandos in Afghanistan on sand. They claim you can walk in them in any direction you like, just like walking without them. They also claim a very fast and reliable fastening system which is tailored to your shoes.
