Made in USA.
Take your first step in the MSR Women's Lightning Ascent snowshoes and you'll recognize at once the 360° grip of this incredibly lightweight snowshoe's Total-Traction frame design, a level of ultralight security and stability that tubular frame style snow shoes simply can’t deliver — especially on traverses. Redesigned with more innovative features than ever, the MSR Women's Lightning Ascent snowshoes include the revolutionary new PosiLock AT bindings and now also offer flotation tail compatibility. Simply attach the 5" MSR Lightning Flotation tails (sold separately; see accessories below) and gain dramatically increased traction and float when encountering deep snow conditions, extreme terrain or carrying a sizeable backpack cargo load etc.
Total-Traction frames are made with one vertical blade of aerospace-grade aluminum, supported by two cross-members of high-strength steel. The sharp, aggressive edge profile digs into snow and ice for unrivaled traction, even when side traversing icy slopes. The all-new split teeth Torsion2 crampons better distribute forces and offer more continuous contact. The proprietary urethane decking material is waterproof, durable, and extremely lightweight. The four strap PosiLock AT bindings employ a two-piece design for optimum comfort and fit that conforms to virtually any winter footwear, from light hiking shoes to mountaineering boots & snowboard boots. Features low friction speed straps that slip easily through the stainless steel tabs and lock down to ensure a solid strap
engagement that will not budge. The MSR Lightning Ascent True-Hinge steel crampon not only grips, it provides stability and reduces heel drift for a more efficient gait. Includes integrated MSR Ergo Televator heel riser lift, which dramatically reduces fatigue on long climbs, and can be raised or lowered easily by using either the grip of your snowshoe poles or with your hand. All materials are waterproof, will not soak up any water, freeze, and turn heavy. Straps remain adjustable and easy to use in all conditions.
- Low-Profile - Narrow frames are ideally suited to a woman's narrower gait, resulting in a more natural stride. Also for anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible.
- Unrivaled Traction - 360° Traction frames deliver advanced, edge-to-edge grip and split teeth of Torsion2 crampons better distribute forces and offer more continuous contact for unmatched traction and security on any terrain, in any conditions.
- Reliable & Proven Materials - Construction methods and improved design result in an extremely durable snowshoe.
- Versatile All-Condition Adaptability - 5” Lightning flotation tails (sold separately; see accessories below) allow you to fine tune the snow shoes to the snow conditions and backpack weight. Snowshoe tails provide additional float and traction.
- Accommodates Large Boots - Enlarged boot hole in frame allows use of snowboard and/or ski boots.
- Easy to Use - all-new four strap PosiLock AT bindings allows easy entry and exit from the snowshoe and provide a comfortable, secure fit that doesn’t budge.
- Climb Easier - Ergo Televator Heel Lifter Bar dramatically reduces calf fatigue to make climbing easier and more efficient. Ergonomic design that engages with a simply flick of a ski pole grip or with one hand.
- Secure Fit - Heel drift is eliminated and four-strap binding provides a great fit and a secure attachment to the snowshoe.

- 25” Load: 120-210 lbs. (up to 270 lbs. with tails)
