The MSR Lightning Explore All-Terrain Snowshoes for men and women are the lightest, most comfortable snowshoes in the MSR line. Designed with superior traction for hiking, trekking, and extended backcountry trips, they provide exceptional performance, without sacrificing ease-of-use. A 360-degree traction frame offers edge-to-edge grip, and crampons provide extra bite on traverses and steep slopes. HyperLink bindings feature a cushioned cradle that eliminates pressure points, and a macro-adjust strap keeps feet centered and accommodates a wide range of footwear. Rugged, lightweight polyurethane decking offers 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 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 3.8 pounds/pair, and carry a 180-pound load; 25-inch snowshoes measure 8 x 25 inches, weigh 3.9 pounds/pair, and carry up to 220 pounds; 30-inch snowshoes measure 8 x 30 inches, weigh 4.5 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.
