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.
FEATURES of the MSR Women's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes
Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and split teeth of Torsion2 crampons better distribute forces for more continuous contact-delivering unmatched traction on any terrain, in any conditions
Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming Women's PosiLock AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment for smaller footwear
Uphill Efficiency: Ergo Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps with an ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip
Low-Profile: Narrow frames are ideal for women, those with a narrow gait, or anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible

good fitBought these for my wife and they fit great. She's 4'10" and about 100 lbs. I have had some difficulty trying to find snowshoes for my 9 year old. Kids snowshoes are usually junk but adult shoes are still a bit big. Too my surprise these fit my 9 year old. So ill be ordering a 2nd pair
