MSR Lightning Explore Snowshoes - Women's

Need a trail partner that’s as comfortable in the varied terrain and harsh conditions of winter as you are? May we introduce the MSR Women’s Lightning Explore snowshoe. With a narrower shape designed to match a woman’s stride, this all-terrain snowshoe is founded on the unsurpassed stability and grip of the 360° Traction Frame. Constructed of the highest grade 7000 series aluminum serrated traction and with a Pivot toe crampon also included, the Lightning Explore excels even in steep ascents and icy traverses. Customizability comes courtesy of Axis Gait Technology, with seven lateral binding adjustments to achieve a parallel stride that fits your natural stance, while control comes from the mitten-approved HyperLink binding that micro adjusts with two ratchet straps for a snug fit, and cradles the foot for comfort and support. Ballistic-grade fabric adds durability without adding weight, and the easy-engage Ergo Televator delivers much-needed relief from calf strain when you’re marching up steeps. And don’t forget about the brand-defining versatility of MSR’s modular design—explore day in and day out on your shorter, more maneuverable snowshoe, and attach the MSR Lightning Tails (sold separately) for an extra 5” of flotation only when you need it for carrying a heavy pack or hiking through deep snow. Available in 22” and 25” sizes.
