Product Info

The MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes aren't made for kung fu fighting, but they are fast as lightning. Built for rising to the top, they feature Ergo™ Televators that increase hiking efficiency and reduce fatigue. Paragon bindings wrap comfortable mesh securely around any boot and won't freeze up no matter how long you've been trudging through deep snow. 360° Traction Frames provide unrivaled edge-to-edge traction while the steel DTX crampons bite through the crunchiest, most challenging terrain, giving you a strong foothold anywhere in the alpine.
