Exposing Unfair Practices: Waste and Obsolescence in the World of Snowshoes


Refuse waste and obsolescence. Opt for durable, proven, and first-class snowshoes.
Manufacturers who only think about their profits

Enough is enough! Say no to waste and obsolescence, even in the world of best snowshoeing.


It's time to shine the spotlight on a disconcerting reality: most snowshoe manufacturers contribute to waste and planned obsolescence, especially those who are not specialized in this equipment. Some favor the production of goods intended to be thrown away rather than to last. A troubling observation, but at Simard Sport, we are determined to continue to change this situation.



The Troubling Game of Planned Obsolescence:

Planned obsolescence, a practice aimed at reducing the useful life of objects sold, is unfortunately commonplace. Often orchestrated for the sole purpose of increasing profits, it manifests itself in short-lived 90-day warranties, unobtainable parts and exorbitant repair costs. It is not uncommon to have to deal with paid diagnostics, costly repairs or the forced purchase of replacement goods on products with a lifetime warranty.


Disconcerting Scenarios:

It is very likely that you have already been faced with one of these situations:

  1. Inability to obtain manufacturer customer service by telephone or email during or after the warranty period.

  2. Inability to obtain parts during and after warranty.

  3. The cost of repairing your equipment is almost the price of a new product.

  4. You are forced to ship your device halfway around the world, for exorbitant fees, in the uncertain hope that it will be repaired.
