The Women's Lightning Ascent snowshoes from MSR have long been a proven classic. And, they're constantly being improved. The all-round serrated steel frame bites into steep, icy terrain and masters traverses with ease. The shape of the aggressive frame with its two aggressive cross members make these snowshoes superior to snowshoe models with tubular frames in steep, icy terrain. In addition, for steep climbs, there are sharp front teeth made of hardened steel suspended on strong hinges. No other type of snowshoe offers more stability in steep terrain than the MSR Lightning Ascent.
The Lightning Ascent from MSR also offers all-condition adaptability. If you're travelling in deep snow with a lot of gear, the Lightning Ascent can be extended with the Lightning Tails (not included), giving you an even larger contact surface for better flotation. The foldable Ergo climbing assistant will reduce the amount of effort required in steep terrain but does require some practice.
The MSR Women's Lightning Ascent snowshoes from MSR are an absolute classic and will provide the traction and security you need on any terrain.
