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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Snowshoes but not for NorthEast Bought these to do NYS 46ers and the rest of the 4000'+ peaks in the NE. Awesome design weight and use of materials. except for using aluminum for the traction system. The nature of our trails means lots of exposed rocks even in the dead of winter and because of this it really takes its toll on the aluminum teeth. used for maybe 3 peaks and decided to sell them off befor there was nothing left. went back to using the Good ol MSR Denali accents. heavier but more durable, a true 5 star snow shoe..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rocky Mountain Charger and Escape Genius Just bought these two days ago. I took them out on 22.5 mile hike and got way in over my head with snow depth, avy conditions, and a basin that had waist deep snow. I beat the crap out of these snowshoes and slowly got out after a 12 hour slog. As I lost elevation, I learned a lot about these snowshoes as conditions changed and got better. ,,,,I bashed the front end off a rock and bent it pretty bad. When I got home, I was able to fix it. Overall, I benefit these snowshoes to pretty much saving me from spending a night out in the wilderness. They don't do great in deep snow but what shoe really does? They aren't cheap but I can't think of any other snowshoe that could survive the kind of abuse these took. Also, some people complain about paint chipping. My advice is buy the silver ones. Mine still look good after miles of hitting rocks under powder snow and bouncing off trees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Fast. Great for climbing. I've taken these on a number of backcountry runs and the combination of the ascender bar and light construction kept me from postholing all the way up the mountian. the strapping system i found to be intuitive and solid. The full crampon style frame kept me stuck to the icy parts while my jealous travel buddies slid and skied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight with the grit. I like these! They work perfect for backcountry walks or a walk to the mailbox when you don't feel up to challenge of telemark BC. Work great in deep powder or icy surfaces. The elevator is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I bought these a few weeks ago and, while it has yet to snow and is still 50 degrees outside in the upper midwest, the snowshoes look really cool in their packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Impressions Haven't used them yet, but build quality seems good and appears to be a well made product. Hope to get some millage on them once the snow falls.
