The MSR Women's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes are an aggressive and ultralight snowshoe for explorers with a narrow gait. The Lightning Ascent is all about lightweight performance in a narrow frame, that will get you through any type of terrain in all conditions. The 360° Traction frames are aggressive, teethy, and are connected to the super durable ballistic fabric decking. Torsion2 crampons feature a split point, gripping the ice or snow like a champ to propel you forward upon the mountain. Use the grip end on your trekking poles to flip up the Ergo Televators to ease the strain on your calves for uphill battles, then push 'em back down when you reach flat lands. Throughout your adventure the PosiLock AT bindings secure your footwear of choice with 3 over the foot straps and a single heel strap, all freeze-resistant and easily field repairable if you run into troubles.
Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.
