The most aggressive snowshoes that MSR produces, the MSR Ascent Snowshoes Womens are packed with features designed to improve performance without adding unnecessary weight and bulk. Built to work with a narrower gait while using a narrower frame and engineered for a woman's natural biomechanics, these snowshoes offer all of the features of the Lightning Ascents but with a lighter weight. Perfectly designed for races and technical traverses, the Lightnings provide an amazingly amount of versatility and functionality built to handle most any situation. Compatible with MSR's Modular Flotation Tails, the Ascents allow you to customize the degree of flotation for current conditions while you're on the go. Allowing you the maneuverability of smaller snowshoes while allowing the option of on-demand flotation, these MSR snowshoes transition between packed snow and powder fields easily and seamlessly when used with Modular Flotation Tails. The glove-friendly PosiLock AT bindings offer the most secure attachment of any binding option and work in tandem with the woman's specific 360° Traction Frames and Pivot Crampons to deliver unmatched traction and security on any terrain in any conditions. And when it comes to traction in steep conditions, the Lightning Ascents utilize the new Ergo Televator technology that is easily engaged with a simple flick of a pole grip and increases traction for more efficient uphill movement. Considered by many to be the pinnacle of snowshoe technology and design, the MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes Womens are aggressive and designed for performance snowshoeing, but are versatile enough to be practical on any almost any kind of ice or snow.

Key Features

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Low-Profile: Narrow frames are idea for women, those with a narrow gait, or anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible.
  • Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming PosiLock AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • 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.
