The MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes with Paragon Bindings are the lightest, most technical snowshoe in the MSR line. Designed with superior traction for backcountry pursuits, they provide security and stability in rugged terrain. Minimalist Paragon bindings feature a one-piece mesh contouring strap that wraps securely around boots for a glove-like feel that eliminates pressure points and promotes alignment and foot control. The ultra-durable, variable-thickness TPU mesh conforms to a wide range of boots, and maintains strength and flexibility in frigid weather; bindings are field-maintainable. A 360-degree traction frame offers edge-to-edge grip, and steel DTX crampons provide bite on traverses and slopes. Rugged, lightweight polyurethane decking offers floatation and durability, and easy-to-engage Ergo Televator heel lifts offer help on the steeps, reducing fatigue. Available in three sizes to accommodate a range of body weights/gear loads: 22-inch snowshoes measure 8×22 inches, weigh 4.18 pounds/pair, and carry a 180 pound load; 25-inch snowshoes measure 8×25 inches, weigh 4.33 pounds/pair, and carry up to 220 pounds; 30-inch snowshoes measure 8×30 inches, weigh 4.93 pounds/pair, and carry up to 280 pounds. Bindings fit men’s shoe sizes 4.5-15. Sold as a pair. Made in the USA. Three-year limited warranty.
