The MSR Lightning Explore Snowshoes are a lightweight and comfortable snowshoe that don't skimp on technological advances. The Lightning Explore starts with 360° Traction frames, with aggressive teeth for stellar grip on all types of terrain. The super durable ballistic fabric creates a solid decking for you to float upon snowfields that won't back down, even with trek after trek of abuse. The combination of an aluminum framing and ballistic fabric creates a lightweight package that allows you to move with efficient speed. Further enhancing your speed is Axis Gait Technology, which uses the bilateral binding adjustments to neutralize your natural foot position allowing for a more parallel stride. Your footwear of choice is solidly strapped in via the new HyperLink binding, which cradles your foot and straps it in with a two-strap ratchet system. Super comfy for a long day out in the snow, just pop the Ergo Televators for calf-friendly uphill battles.

Dig these shoes. You should buy them.I love these snow shoes. The televators are great but I really love the ratchet system. Much easier than the 4 different straps that keep coming undone on other MSR's I have owned.
