The MSR Revo Ascent Snowshoes are built for durability on all-terrain snow adventures. The Revo Ascent features ExoTract, a plastic molded decking with aggressive teeth on the perimeter for a combination that flexes and grips on snow for easier forward movement, whether you're on a flat field, rolling hill, or steeper slope. Steep upward ascents are made easier with the Ergo Televators, a handy little bar that lifts the heel to reduce fatigue, especially in the calves. Just pop it back down once you reach flatter lands. A variety of footwear can be secured to the snowshoes with the PosiLock AT bindings, featuring three straps across the toe and a single heel strap. They're super durable, freeze-resistant, and easily repaired in the field.

I bought a new pair of MSR-Revo Acent last winter to snowshoe around the Swiss Alps and I must say these are not your grandpa's snowshoes. I truly enjoy the new aggressive design, they bit in and hold on very well on a grade. They are comfortable for hours of shoeing. If you want so good snowshoes that will take you anywhere, I would recommend the MSR-Revo Ascent.

I used and abused my pair of Denali Ascents for 10+ years for everything from strolling through the woods to winter mountaineering, so I was a little heartbroken when the crampon finally cracked from fatigue this winter. I decided to take a chance on MSR's latest design and ordered the Revo Ascents. Being a die-hard fan of the Denali Ascents it may take me a while to come around fully, but here are my initial impressions:
Bindings: The primary reason I ordered the Ascent model was for this style binding, since I loved it so much on my old pair. The old bindings were simple, unbreakable, and never iced up. The only downside to the old bindings was that at cold temperatures, the straps tended to become difficult to stretch and thus difficult to put on tightly, especially with mittens... MSR has appeared to address this with a softer formulation. The bindings lay almost perfectly flat, making these snowshoes very packable. While it doesn't negatively affect the performance of the snowshoes, the strap retainer clips don't work, so they just seem like a sloppy/silly addition. I've played around with the foot positioning a bit; using the ball of foot indicator on the base of the binding puts my foot to far forward (to my taste), such that the front crampons seem less effective for climbing. If I move my foot too far back in the binding, my heel will occasionally catch on the Televator bar, not a serious problem - but annoying. Consequently, I've had to dial in an ideal positioning for my boots.
Traction: The snowshoes are not wanting for more traction. They seem to be more stable in slope-traversing situations than the Denali Ascents, perhaps because there is some flexibility in the crampon of this model. The traction around the edges of the snowshoes is a little more difficult to keep track of than more tightly space traction on other models. Consequently, I was more frequently catching the the snowshoes on ice and obstacles while traveling on tight trails.
Overall: The construction appears to be of the quality I expect from MSR. Hopefully I will manage to get as much use out of them as my old snowshoes.

Bomber SnowshoeYou honestly feel unstoppable with these strapped to the bottom of your feet. I've worn them on powder, crusted snow, packed snow, and somewhat icy slopes. The tails help when I have a heavy pack on. The crampon edges kept me from sliding while descending, while those with tubular frames were struggling.

Excellent Snowshoes for Excellent Adventures!I recently purchased these snowshoes after being frustrated with my older pair of Tubbs. The binding system on the Tubbs would often come undone and made it really hard to adventure into the back country. I'm an avid snowboarder (also a splitboarder) so having snowshoes that not only fit my snowboard boots but stay secured is very helpful. The binding system on the Revo Ascents is really easy to use and stays secure through all terrain. The crampons on the bottom and outer edges offer unparalleled traction on ice, snow and slush. The heel rise bars are easy to use with ski/ trekking poles and make ascending steeper grades less tiresome. I'm also really impressed with how light weight the pair were, I can easily attach them to a pack. Overall I am thrilled with my snowshoes and would recommend them to anyone looking to invest in a new pair!

Revo Ascent snowshoeThey were a gift for retirement. The design for the tails suck. After second use lost a tail in deep snow. This is defiantly a design flaw and this system should be totally scraped. A good friend also has the same snowshoes. Same thing happened to him. He was lucky enough that his daughter was right behind him. The tail came off, but he didn't lose his tail

Great snowshoe, almost perfect.These are light and burly snowshoes. The straps keep the snowshoes on better than regular webbing. Tons of grip with an aggressive metal frame. Also they are made in the USA. ,,,,The only thing that would make them perfect would be a ratcheting binding.

Bombproof!Used the Revo Ascents for two seasons now and love them. Last season was a poor snow year for Bend, OR and conditions were marginal at best. The Revo Ascents handled ice, deadfall and rocks without a worry. Bindings are super adjustable and easy to use.

Two years in, really enjoyI bought these to help out with back country snowboarding. So far, so good. But, the straps could be a bit longer. I have a lot of trouble getting them around my size 14 snowboard boots.
