Lightning Ascent

MSR

MSR's ultralight snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of MSR's advanced 360° Traction frames and deliver a level of security that tubular frames simply can’t—especially on traverses. Dual-component PosiLock AT bindings offer MSR's most secure attachment, while rugged decking ensures long-lasting durability. In technical terrain, the snowshoes’ steel cross members and easily engaged Ergo Televators back you up with every step. And like all of our snowshoes, Lightning Ascents offer the all-condition adaptability of MSR's Modular Flotation tails.

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and new durable steel DTX crampons provide serious bite in challenging conditions—delivering unmatched traction in technical terrain.
  • Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming PosiLock AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • All-Condition Adaptability: 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.
  • Uphill Efficiency: Ergo Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps with an ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.
