The MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes are lightweight and aggressive to take you onward and upward through all types of terrain. The advanced 360° traction frames provide grippy traction beneath while surrounding a lightweight ballistic decking to keep you up on top instead of postholing your way through the snowfield. The frame and deck combination is super durable and ready to take on all types of snow through changing terrain. The Torsion2 crampons feature split teeth for extra grip as you trek. To ensure you're always connected to the Lightning Ascent, PosiLock AT bindings strap around a wide range of footwear styles and are freeze-resistant for adjustments along the way. Once you reach the beginning of an uphill battle, quickly engage the Ergo Televators to reduce fatigue. Your calves will thank you. Baby cows.
