The pinnacle of ultralight, aggressive all-terrain performance, the women's MSR Lightning Ascent snowshoes have tough, reliable decking for exploring mountainous winter wonderlands.

  • Features

    • PosiLock AT bindings offer maximum foot security and packable performance, ideal for mountaineers
    • Heel lifts deploy with the simple flick of a pole grip to reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps
    • 360° Traction frames deliver a level of security that tubular frames simply can't, especially on traverses
    • Women-specific frames were engineered with a renowned biomechanics expert, resulting in a lower profile that saves weight and improves agility for those with a narrow gait
    • Aggressive crampons with external traction teeth ensure control and tenacious grip, especially on challenging terrain
    • Add-on modular flotation tails (sold separately) accommodate heavier loads, or allow you to go from packed snow to deep powder with a single pair of snowshoes

    Made in USA.

    Max recommended load specification includes weight of hiker with gear.
