MSR Women's Lightning™ Ascent Snowshoes

  • $329.95

Our Women’s Lightning Ascent snowshoes feature a lower-profile frame that’s ideal for those with a narrow gait or anyone seeking a lighter alternative in this aggressive snowshoe. Built for technical terrain, the snowshoes boast our Paragon™ Binding, which conforms to your boot without pressure points, offering maximum foot security and comfort. Combined with the Women’s 360° Traction™ Frames for unparalleled grip, tough decking, and Ergo™ Televator heel lifts, these ultralight snowshoes deliver confidence behind every step.

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, while durable steel DTX crampons provide serious bite in challenging conditions—delivering unmatched traction in technical terrain.
  • Paragon™ Binding: Comfortable mesh strap wraps securely around a wide range of footwear, including smaller boots, offering ultimate control. Toe stops ensure fast, easy foot placement.
  • 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 flick of a pole grip.
  • Low-Profile: Narrow frames improve agility for those with a narrow gait, and are ideal for anyone seeking a lighter snowshoe.
