Fimbulvetr (Old Norse: «The Great Winter») is committed to professionals and hardcore winter enthusiasts
After researching 6000 years of snowshoe evolution, 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.
Designed to support heavy loads in the backcountry. The large, but compact bearing surface, gives an unparalleled ratio between strength, low weight and maneuverability. RANGR is the original Fimbulvetr snowshoe, for maximum floatation in deep powder. An excellent tool for making first tracks in flat and hilly terrain.
Fimbulvetr utilizes the latest technologies to maximize the potential in performance materials. The main goal of the project is to push function, durability and aesthetics. The product is produced and assembled in Norway. In order to make this possible we had to be smart through design for assembly. Every component was thoroughly optimized using FEA and prototypes were produced as close to production as possible. The process from idea to production CAD files was completed all in house.
