New Summit Viper Treestands


The new Summit Viper treestands boast Summit’s most innovative features in two impressive treestand designs. The Summit Viper Elite SD (closed front) and the Summit Viper Specialists SD (open front) are the culmination of years’ worth of improvements and additions to Summit's no.1 selling stand, the Viper.

Summit first began with the 28lb steel Viper Classic. A year later, Summit developed the aluminum Viper weighing in at 20lbs. Last year, Summit made them quieter with the introduction of the Dead Metal Sound Dampening Technology. This year, Summit put it all together for the greatest versions of the Viper: The Viper Elite SD and The Viper Specialists SD.

The foundation for both additions to the Viper family is noticed at first glance…the round tubing.  This high tech aluminum tubing gives tremendous strength to the new Vipers, while also shedding a few pounds…4 pounds to be exact.

Other new features found on both the Elite SD and Specialist SD are newly designed platform slats and a comfortable mesh/foam “hammock style” seat.
