Snowshoe Bindings - The Crescent Moon Difference and Gold vs Silver Series Features
Ever since Crescent Moon bindings got top pick and "best binding" rating in Backpacker Magazine's 2009 Fall/Winter Gear Guide, these snowshoes have won the hearts and minds of snowshoers everywhere.
The SPL captures and holds your foot securely in place using compression from the top down, from side to side, and most uniquely from the toe to the heel. (compared to other snowshoe vendors which have open-toe designs). The bindings are left and right specific with an anatomical shape to wrap around your feet in every direction – this unique feature is what makes the SPL fit (and feel) like no other binding. With the SPL binding, your snowshoe becomes a natural extension of your foot's motion, it moves where you move, it does what you do, uphill, downhill, across the rolling tundra, on or off trails.
About Crescent Moon Gold Series Snowshoes
Crescent Moon recently made some changes to their SPL (single-pull-loop) binding, including: enlarging the harness to capture more of your foot, adding a horizontal stabilizer beneath the footplate for greater control, and significantly changing the size of the stomp pad to increase both traction and comfort. All the Gold series shoes have thicker, abrasion resistant decking material which makes them more durable. And the features which have made Crescent Moon one of the most recognizable brands in the category, such as the unique tear drop shaped TIG welded frame and 3 claw traction system, remain the same. Crescent Moon’s unqiue 3 claw traction system which, in the Gold series are stainless steel (except for the Gold 12 running shoe) and finally,each TIG welded frame is brilliantly colored which makes Crescent Moon distinctly different from the rest of the market, both in the store and on the snow.

About Crescent Moon's Silver Series Snowshoes
The Silver Series is constructed with the same molded stirrup as the Gold series binding including the the Single pull loop strap adjustments, but instead of using ratcheting buckles in the heel strap as they do in the Gold series, the Silver series is made with tension lock buckles and a spring cam buckle heel strap. Silver Series snowshoes are built with aluminum crampons (instead of stainless steel) and the frames in the Silver series are all polished aluminum instead of the brilliantly colored frames found on the Gold series. Many of the features and benefits are shared between the Gold and Silver series, but the Silver series are “value” priced because of the different components used and a lifetime warranty on the Golds vs. a 2 year limited warranty on the Silvers.
