The MSR Lightning Ascent are probably the best snowshoe for more technical use available in our opinion, giving superb performance on steep and rugged terrain. They have heel lifters for steep slopes so that your calf muscles are always on a level platform, and the 20cm wide frame, cut from a single, vertical blade of aerospace-grade aluminium, delivers really grippy traction especially on traverses. Hinged steel crampons add extra security on icy ground, and the weatherproof, non-freezing and glove-friendly bindings are easy to use.

Three lengths are available: 22" or 56cm, 25" or  64cm, and 30" or 76cm - the length you need depends on your weight (see chart below). In addition,  Flotation Tails are available as an add on product and can be useful in deep powder conditions. In 2017 they retailed at £55/pair including VAT. Please email us if you want a pair of these and we'll check availability.

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and split teeth of Torsion2™ crampons better distribute forces for more continuous contact”delivering unmatched traction on any terrain, in any conditions.
  • Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming PosiLock™ AT bindings create a secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • All-Condition Adaptability: Add-on Modular Flotation tails allow you the manoeuvrability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the added, on-demand flotation of optional, 5-inch (13-cm) tails, adding about 25kg equivalent to the weight the shoes can carry - please email us if you want to order these.
  • Uphill Efficiency: "Ergo™ Televators" (heel lifts in normal English!) reduce fatigue and increase traction on steep sections with an ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.

They are available in black and blue - however we don't specify colour when we order as MSR often run out of one colour or the other. But if you want a particular colour please email us and we'll check our stock and/or what MSR have available.
