Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, October 17 - Louis Garneau revolutionizes the world of snowshoeing by using the BOA system and wins several prizes, including the prestigious Gear of the Year award presented by America's leading active-lifestyle and adventure-travel magazine, Outside magazine. Earlier this year, the Course snowshoe won the Best in Show award presented by Gear Junkie, while the Yeti snowshoe was named best in Show by both Gear Institute and Gumption Gear.

Louis Garneau has been developing snowshoes for nearly 10 years, and the arrival of the BOA system will make these new snowshoes a must-have in the world of outdoor sports. "We have been working in collaboration with the company BOA for a few years for our cycling shoes, and the snowshoes equipped with the BOA system was the logical continuation to providing our clients with what they expect from Garneau products: quality, comfort and innovation."

The future of snowshoeing is the BOA reel, a patented lace system that allows a quick and precise adjustment and ensures a 360° retention of the foot, top, heel and toes. A quick release guide allows a fast and easy entry and exit without even having to remove your gloves. Our snowshoe harnesses with the BOA closure system weigh the third of traditional systems. The cable that ensures the closure of the harness is made with aircraft-grade stainless steel and is backed by a lifetime warranty for an ensured reliability and durability.

Garneau snowshoes are available at all our authorized retailers.
