Now even more reliable thanks to new tougher decking, MSR's ultralight snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of our advanced 360° Traction frames and deliver a level of security that tubular frames simply can’t—especially on traverses. Dual-component PosiLock AT bindings offer MSR's most secure attachment, while aggressive steel cross members and easily engaged Ergo Televators back you up with every step. And like all of MSR snowshoes, Lightning Ascents offer the all-condition adaptability of their Modular Flotation tails.


  • 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 our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • All-Condition Adaptability: Add-on 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.
