Difference Between Elite and Quicksilver 25? on 11/25/2011 17:50:39 MST Print View

The only clear difference in the specs between the Northern Lites Elite and Quicksilver 25 is the Elite's are listed as 1 ounce lighter. The length, width and surface area are the same for both models.

Does anybody know if there are other significant differences? For me, 1 ounce wouldn't be worth the significant price upgrage of the Elite's unless there are other differences, such as the crampons or durability, etc.

No direct experience and I haven't done any research on the snowshoes that you mentioned but my guess would be that the Elites have a more aggressive crampon that is more suitable for climbing, while the Quicksilvers are more at home on gentle rolling terrain.
