Lightning Ascent Features:
PosiLock AT Bindings
Our Posilock AT binding utilizes a two-piece urethane body that locks down tight to the contours of a wide range of footwear, making it our most secure binding for aggressive ascents and all-terrain stability.
Built into our Ascent series snowshoes, innovative Televator heel lifts conserve energy on the steeps. They reduce calf fatigue while climbing and help to distribute pressure across the frame, increasing traction and safety.
Small and light enough to bring on any trip, you can take advantage of the agility of a smaller, primary snowshoe in packed conditions, while adding 5-inches (13 centimeters) of flotation on-demand for deeper snow, or when carrying heavier packs (tails sold separately).
Precision Engineering Inspired By Unruly Dreamers
For 40 years, the MSR brand has stood for cutting-edge backcountry-gear engineering. Our passionate fusion of mountaineering and engineering has led to a succession of groundbreaking products—from stoves, tents, and snowshoes to cookware, water filters, purifiers and camp towels—that have revolutionized the outdoor industry.
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.
