Easton Artica snowshoe revamp

Easton Outfitters out of Salt Lake has revamped its Artica snowshoe line and produced new Composite Deck snowshoes for 2014. The revamp has also led to a price reduction dropping prices on the Artica Backcountry $90 to $169.99, the Hike $60 to $139.99 and the Trail $50 to $109.99. Easton took away some of the extra features to accomplish the price reduction, but it kept the quality and performance the same. There are trail and hike models in the new Composites and each comes in 22-inch or 27-inch models for $119 and $149, respectively. eastonmountainproducts.com
