The MSR Lightning Explore Snowshoes are backcountry flotation devices for snowy trails. Explore a little further with lightness in your feet and plenty of traction thanks to a 360° Traction™ frames. The Pivot™ crampons grip with each step, be it upon a field of snow or icy patches and traverses. Going up? Reduce the strain on your calves by popping up the Ergo Televators.

FEATURES of the MSR Lightning Explore Snowshoes

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames and Pivot crampons deliver reliable grip in variable terrain and conditions, both on the trails and off.
  • HyperLink Binding: Easy-entry cradle with new EVA foam cushions for all-day comfort and a simplified two-strap ratchet system for even faster entry and exit. Includes macro-adjustment straps for comfort with a wider range of boot sizes.
  • All-Condition Adaptability: Modular Flotation tails allow you the maneuverability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the added, on-demand flotation of optional, 5-inch (13-cm) tails.
  • Uphill Efficiency: Ergo Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps, with a new, ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from the notched straps I bought this pair snowshoes. On the third hike, the notched straps have loosened. to be continued....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad design, decent company follow up I purchased these snow shoes a couple of weeks ago and took them for the first time this week. About an hour and change into the day, I noticed one of the bindings had become very floppy . I removed the snowshoe and discovered that the pin holding the binding to the frame had sheared off. I cut the trip short and had to posthole in mid calf snow for about a mile to get to a more firm surface for the return to my car. I contacted MSR immediately, and to their credit, they were very responsive. Apparently the "clevis pin" which holds the binding to the snowshoe came off. Based on the photos i provided, they said "all you needed was a clevis pin, and you'd've been back in business" and that "this is a rare case/doesn't happen often. " I wouldn't expect to need to carry a "clevis pin" as a spare part the next time I snowshoe. Bottom line: I like the ratcheting system which makes shoe/boot adjustment much easier for those with arthritic hands (like myself) I think MSR has a design problem here. I would have rated the product one star, but I appreciate the prompt customer followup, so two stars it is. And I would definitely order some "clevis pins" along with the snowshoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best from two world the straps are easy to remove. It lacks a strap in the middle. I added it personally. best outfit super satisfied. good flotation on the snow. I can't say anything about sustainability. It's difficult to descend in a straight line on a certain slope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from with a second HyperLink bindings, the best I added a second binding near the ankle. It share the traction points
Date published: 2021-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Snowshoes These work great. Sturdy & comfortable. The metal crampons provide great grip in icy conditions. The shorter 22" length is good for steep hikes, yet adaptable with the extensions for deeper snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly light These are the easiest snowshoes to put on and adjust. The new binding system is great. They are also very light and maneuverable. Apparently I need to use more words.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, with some limits To offer context, I've used these exclusively for winter hiking in the Catskills, doing the 3500 ft. high peaks. I have found these snowshoes to be more than adequate for these mountains. There are a few drawbacks. The first is the single binding that goes over the top of each foot. It has been a source of some pain going downhill (not as bad as reported by some reviewers, but still...) due to the pressure placed on the single binding. Similarly, if that binding were to break while you were out, you would be out of luck; there is no back up strap. Second, these worked well in steep conditions (no more than 45 degrees), though the front crampon has only 2 spikes, as opposed to the 4 spikes that the Ascent series has. You might want to double check this, but I believe this is a key difference. Third, these are longer than the Ascent series, which make them less maneuverable than the Ascent model. Again, not a deal breaker, but something to consider. Finally, the fit can be tight at first. I've discovered that hiking in them for a bit can loosen things and allow for further tightening after. Just a tip. Overall, this model is capable for most winter mountain hiking, including going up and down moderate to difficult winter peaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, tough and a pleasure to walk in. Very happy with these snowshoes - easy to put on and great to walk in. Tough and durable, they should last a long time. Highly recommend them.
