Which model is for you? Ascent snowshoes are the first choice of professionals, alpinists and everyday explorers alike–anyone needing to get from point A to point B, regardless of what lies between. If you prioritize all-day comfort and efficiency, yet refuse to compromise elite performance for off-trail forays, our Explore series of snowshoes are your match. Be it a casual day trip close to home or a multi-day traverse through the frozen expanses of the Yellowstone Basin, Trail snowshoes are built for maximum efficiency across rolling terrain.

Product description

Now even more reliable thanks to new tougher decking, our ultralight snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of our advanced 360 Degree Traction frames and deliver a level of security that tubular frames simply can't-especially on traverses. Dual-component AT bindings offer our most secure attachment, while aggressive 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 our Modular Flotation tails.
