Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome snow shoes These are by far the best snow shoes! The boot straps are very easy to use and hold your foot into the snowshoes effectively. Once you use these straps for your boots you well never recommend any other snow shoes that you have ever used. The snowshoes are very light and so easy to walk in. For walking up step inclines you can use the elevation features which reduces the effort for climbing. Really like the flat aluminum construction and the ice grips on the frames. These are well worth the cost!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved my Denali's. Will never Loved my Denali's. Will never let them go. However-My holiday gifted Ascents are wonderful, especially in steeper terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snowshoe system. They are great thank you. I appreciate the opportunity to purchase these. I will be using them for both my employment with the Government of Canada as a field supervisor and for recreational use as well. I am very impressed with the design. I purchased the tail extensions, maintenance kit and snowshoe pack as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSR Snowshoes are Alaska worthy. I have put hundreds of miles on these bad boys in some world class terrain. I have used these to climb the Grand Teton in winter, approached peaks on Thompson Pass and Hatcher Pass Alaska. They have proved worthy on short WI2 bulges and class 3 terrain. I have used these snowshoes so much I swear I have grown nerve endings on the bottom. On hard packed snow the crampons on the bottom are good enough to ascend up to 45-degree terrain. The only con of these snowshoes is when ascending ski lines without skis I get some really dirty looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anti-snowshoe I have been snowshoeing a few times. Each time I went I hated it, slower than skies and harder than walking with boots had been my experience. I avoided snow shoes for years. But I needed a pair for a trip and decided to get the best so hopefully snowshoeing would be, at least, tolerable. The Ascent Lightenings showed up and sat int he box a few weeks as I wanted for snow. We just had some and I put the shoes on to take a quick walk in the backyard just to see if the bindings worked. The bidding are fantastic and I felt so good in the snowshoes I went for a 4 mile hike. Then went out the next day and the next day. WOW love these show shoes, I love snowshoeing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best traction in a snowshoe If you’re winter hiking along steep trails, these are the best snowshoes you can buy. I used the same pair of Lightning Ascent™ snowshoes heavily each winter across 5 years in the White Mountains of NH. Peaks here get very icy & very steep in the winter, so taking on any of the higher summits demands a snowshoe with impressive traction. Lightning Ascent™ snowshoes have the best traction on the market - there really isn’t another snowshoe that comes close, except for similar MSR designs. Most snowshoes have the bulky tubular perimeter, but the heavily serrated perimeter of these shoes cut into ice, along with the sharp crampon on the foot. Be aware that the aluminum construction unavoidably makes the snowshoes much softer than steel. I used my shoes until the sharp sides were flat, and each tooth of the crampons completely snapped. While the crampons under the foot are replaceable, no amount of sharpening can enhance the dull sides. PROS - •Very lightweight •Best traction of any snowshoe •Replaceable parts CONS- •Aluminum less durable than steel •Less flotation on snow than tubular snowshoes Best snowshoe for steep winter terrain. For fluffy powder & deep snow, with little ice, snowshoes with a bigger focus on flotation rather than traction is preferred.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightning Ascent Short comings! I love the Lightning Ascent Snowshoes and have worn out several pairs. However the "New" Paragon Binding is not my favorite I would much rather have the the option of ordering the previous style binding. In soft snow the new heal strap is harder to get a good hold on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bindings, love the traction. Have put these through a few good snowy ascents. Bindings are quick. The televators are amazing. And the traction was solid. Ice/snow/packed powder.
