Atlas' newest backcountry snowshoe, the Helium-BC, is the lightest in the Helium quiver with the 23” coming in under 3 lbs! Combining the new Helium Deck and BC Crampon with anodized aluminum traction rails and the tried-and-true Packflat™ Binding this is a do-it-all snowshoe in the ultimate lightweight package. The new low-profile, tempered steel BC crampon sits lower in the frame to compliment the PackFlat™ binding and allow for a more natural rotation feel with every step. A backcountry necessity, this binding features urethane Z-straps that hold the foot securely and are field-serviceable with the included BC utility strap. Adding to the grip of the BC crampon, anodized aluminum traction rails provide a secure grip when ascending, descending and traversing. When weight and space are limited, but reliability and performance can’t be, you need the Helium-BC.

Snowshoe Series: Backcountry
19° Heel Lift: On steep climbs, calf muscles tire quickly and traction decreases when your foot matches the slope angle. The heel lift bar on Atlas snowshoes eases fatigue when climbing and ensures better grip when the terrain gets steep.
Helium Deck: The deck of the all-new Helium series provides the foundation making these the lightest composite snowshoes available. The unique louver sheds snow to keep them lightweight, while also creating traction.
Helium BC Crampon: Designed and tested to meet the standards of alpine adventurers, the BC is the lightest crampon in the Helium series. Crafted from tempered steel, this crampon’s tangs provide the bite needed in variable snow conditions. The BC Crampon also maintains a low profile to complement the PackFlat™ Binding.
PackFlat™ Binding: Designed for backcountry snowboarding and climbing, the new PackFlat™binding features quick-lashing urethane straps that are fully field-replaceable with the included BC Utility Strap. Able to accommodate bigger snowboard boots, the bindings collapse flat for easy storage in your pack.
Full Length Aluminum Traction Rails: Aggressive saw-toothed traction provides a secure grip on steep slopes, in all snow conditions. The steel traction rails provide the grip needed when trails become packed down or uneven.
