When you live in Norway you must understand snow. And snowshoes. First, the Norwegian company Fimbulvetr did extensive research of 6000 years of snowshoe evolution -- give or take a few years. Then they used Grasshopper to help design a new snowshoe.
From their web site: "We set out to create a stronger, lighter, more durable and ergonomic snowshoe from scratch. Previous snowshoes typically have many breakable parts, feel detached and limit movements. Through redesign, prototyping and testing we developed a high-end tool for superior, personal, winter mobility. The result is a whole new snowshoe experience, best described as a natural extension of the foot. Try it, and never go back."
Fimbulvetr currently sells their snowshoes through their web site.
