The Tubbs Flex NRG won our hearts over from step one, actually, before the first step! The Tubbs Flex series is a lightweight, functional, and extremely easy group of snowshoes to use. Snowshoes can sometimes be intimidating for some people as the sport looks to be too technical or complicated. Tubbs has been known to offer snowshoes that make the sport as easy and simplistic as possible. The binding system in the Flex series is extremely easy to use; it has a snap in front binding that secures your front foot to the snowshoe deck and it comes with the typical rubber rear strap to secure your heal. A complaint many people often have with a number of snowshoes is that the snowshoe tails flick snow up on the bum and back, but the flex series is a little different. When walking in these snowshoes, the tail actually falls to the ground as you step versus the typical binding system that flings snow on you. We found the Flex NRG to have a nice flow while walking and hiking, putting less stress on your joints and bones. The Crampon under the deck for the NRG is a middle of the road crampon, meaning it is not meant for hardcore mountaineering, but it meets the needs of 90% of people out there. We had a number of our testers test all the snowshoes, and the Tubbs Flex NRG was the overwhelming favorite. So, if you’re in the market for a new pair of snowshoes, the Tubbs Flex series should make it on your list of snowshoes to try out.
