The Lightning Ascent Snowshoes by MSR. Now equipped with the all-condition adaptability of MSR's Modular Flotation tails, MSR's most aggressive snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of MSR's advanced, 360 Traction frames and deliver a level of ultralight security that tubular frames simply can't–especially on traverses. New, dual-component, PosiLock AT bindings offer MSR's most secure attachment, while aggressive cross members, Pivot Crampons and new, easily-engaged Ergo Televators back you up with every step.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Regretted This Purchase I rely on reviews so much for purchasing things online and really struggled with this one. There really aren't a lot of reviews out there for snowshoes, but these really called out to me. I picked these up for snowshoeing around Mt. Hood. I'm 6'0 @ ~195 lbs and debated the 25" and the 30" and finally picked the 25's. I've taken these on maintained trails, powder, packed ice, and up hills and have found these to be very versatile. I picked up the tails but haven't needed them yet. Bindings aren't as easy to get into as other models but hold you much more securely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It makes me climb further I am backcountry snowboarding with this. The good things are 1) strong. It is stronger than MSR plastic snowshoe I used before. It is better for traversing icy surface. The tooth biting to the ice let you walk easily.,,2) light. 3) looks great.,,Bads are 1) the tooth on the aluminum frame scratch your pants if you do not walk carefully or you should not take care of it. 2) The lifter is not ease to move up with snow glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber Snowshoe I picked these up for the miles and miles of slogging I had to do on the Kahiltna. It had dumped all winter and without the 30" of flotation, I would have been up to my waist the whole way. The heel lifts are calf savers on steep hills and the traction on these things is awesome. Also, these pack much easier than other models, whether they're in your gear duffel or strapped to your backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent grip Excellent pair of snowshoes! Way more effective than tubular designed snowshoes in my opinion. Grip great up and down hill, great stability and control while also light. The straps can be finicky with cold hands but no more than anything else. These are not crampons! Don't listen to people complaining about traversing ice or whatnot.,,All in all bomber!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best snowshoe for climbers on the market! Light weight, bindings pack down, televator bar, great crampons. What else do you really need. Got to love the 5 inch floaters you can put on there too. I will have these snowshoes for many years to come
