You are looking at a new without tags pair of Karhu "sliding snowshoes" marketed by LL Bean. The seller bought these with all intentions of using them, then sustained a leg injury that prevented him from doing so. They have been in storage for a couple of years, but never used.

These unique, stable sliding snowshoes feature a Positrack no-wax base, which grips in one direction for traction as you climb and glide in the other direction for a smooth descent. Metal edges give you more control on harder snow. Great for recreational snowshoers looking for climbing power and a fun, stable glide on flat or rolling terrain. They are 120 cm long and wider than typical skis. These are a fresh approach that expands the traditional free-heel market – no special boot and binding combination are needed . The fat oversized design provides a stable and maneuverable platform similar to snowshoes, while the built-in bearfur base creates unbelievable grip going uphill and excellent balance between thrills and controlled glide on the downhill - no matter how steep the slope or tight the trees are! Full length metal edges for a solid bite when climbing and confident control when encountering downhills. The pre-mounted, fully adjustable & universal bindings allow you to use any flexible hiking boot or snow boot , no rigid specific ski boots necessary !

130 cm XC Backcountry snowshoe-ski poles included, also by LL Bean.

Thanks for looking!
