MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoe - Women's

Item #: 71513

Our Price: $269.95

Sky Blue

Regardless of what wintry terrain lies between were you've been and where you're going, the women's Lightning Ascent snowshoe will get you there. This snowshoe is the top choice of anyone with a narrow gait, or those seeking the lightest possible alternative in MSR's most aggressive snowshoe. The Women's 360 Traction™ frames were designed in conjunction with a renowned expert in athletic biomechanics, resulting in a lower-profile frame that saves weight and improves agility with narrow gaits. Paired with PosiLock™ AT bindings to create the most secure attachment, new, aggressive Torsion2™ crampons, and the easily engaged Ergo™ Televators, they'll back you up with every step.
  • Narrow frames are ideal for women, those with a narrow gait, or anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible.
  • 360 Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and split teeth of Torsion2™ crampons better distribute forces and offer more continuous contact?delivering unmatched traction on any terrain, in any conditions.
  • Two-piece, independently conforming PosiLock™ AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • Ergo™ Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps with an ergonomic design that engages with a simply flick of a pole grip.
  • Add-on Modular Flotation tails allow you the maneuverability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the added, on-demand flotation of optional, 5-inch (13-cm) tails. (Campmor style # 71507)
  • Made in the USA

    Comments about MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoe - Women's:

    These snowshoes rock! They're so light and with a narrower base I couldn't even tell they were on. A huge improvement from the clunky, cumbersome norm. Plenty of float even in deep powder but there are optional tails available for additional float. Easy to put on and take off, plus they have a heel lock to make stepping over logs and stuff a breeze. And they're cool looking! I couldn't be happier. These are top of the line women's snowshoes that retail for almost $100 more elsewhere. Get em before they sell out!
