Description

What began as a solution for women has become the top choice of anyone with a narrow gait, or those seeking the lightest possible alternative in our most aggressive snowshoe. MSR engineered our Women’s 360° Traction™ Frames 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 our new, most secure, dual-component PosiLock™ AT bindings to create our most secure attachment, Modular Flotation tails, Pivot™ Crampons and new, easily-engaged Ergo™ Televators back you up with every step.
  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames and Pivot crampons deliver unmatched, edge-to-edge security on any terrain and in any conditions, with advanced ergonomics tailored to a narrow gait.
  • Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming PosiLock AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • All-Condition Adaptability 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 simply flick of a pole grip.
  • Low-Profile: Narrow frames are idea for women, those with a narrow gait, or anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible.

      Great aggressive shoe, perfect traction on deep powder or sloping ice. Crampons aggressive enough for steep pitches, televators take all the calf strain away on the unrelenting ups.

        Comments about Lightning Ascent Snowshoes - Women's:

        I have been snowshoeing every Winter for the last 10 years. The first 2 pairs of snowshoes I purchased failed in one way or another and then I joined an outdoor hiking group and every single person on the first snowshoe I went on was wearing MSR Lightnings.
        I bought a pair and wore them for 8 years - could have continued to wear them but wanted to try the televators on the newer model. The straps are a little stiff but get easier as you use them more. I reversed the direction of the clip on the front strap and that helped it stay in place.
        I recommend these to everyone I snowshoe/hike with!

          Comments about Lightning Ascent Snowshoes - Women's:

          I have used a version of these snowshoes for the last 8 years every Winter and would not even consider purchasing another brand. I have used them on icy surfaces and not slipped, in soft snow and stickly snow that sticks on the bottom of some of my friends snowshoes but not these. So I am replacing my older pair - just slight tearing of the platforms after all these years. Hope to get many more years from the new ones too. Worth the money over so many years.
