The MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes for men and women are the lightest, most technical snowshoe in the MSR line. Designed with superior traction for mountaineering, backcountry pursuits, and rugged terrain, they provide security and stability in challenging conditions. A 360-degree traction frame offers edge-to-edge grip, and steel crampons, with two fang-like teeth, provide bite on traverses and steep slopes. The PosiLock bindings create a secure, freeze-resistant attachment that is compatible with all types of footwear. Rugged, lightweight polyurethane decking offers superior floatation and durability, and easy-to-engage Ergo Televator heel lifts offer help on the steeps, reducing fatigue. The MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes are compatible with MSR Modular Floatation Tails (sold separately), for extra float when carrying heavier loads, or encountering varied terrain and changing snow conditions. Available in three sizes to accommodate a range of body weights/gear loads: 22-inch snowshoes measure 8 x 22 inches, weigh 4 pounds/pair, and carry a 180-pound load; 25-inch snowshoes measure 8 x 25 inches, weigh 4.2 pounds/pair, and carry up to 220 pounds; 30-inch snowshoes measure 8 x 30 inches, weigh 4.8 pounds/pair, and carry up to 280 pounds. Bindings fit men’s shoe sizes 4.5-15. Maximize maneuverability with the smallest snowshoe that will float body weight, plus gear (outerwear, backpack, trekking poles). Sold as a pair. Made in the USA. Three-year limited warranty.
