Packed with MSR's latest technologies, the Women’s Lightning Explore snowshoes represent a giant leap in snowshoeing performance, ease and comfort. First, MSR's new Axis Gait Technology allows you to laterally adjust bindings independently of the frame, ensuring efficient, parallel-tracking snowshoes regardless of your natural toe-out or toe-in stance. Combined with an aggressive and low-profile 360° Traction frame adapted for a women’s narrow gait, these shoes offer absolute snowshoeing efficiency. In addition, new HyperLink bindings are MSR's easiest and most comfortable binding. Ergo Televators save you on the steeps and, of course, you get the benefit of our Modular Flotation tails to provide you with the confidence and versatility you need across a broad range of snowshoeing experiences.


  • Unrivaled Traction: Low-profile, women’s 360° Traction frames plus Pivot crampons deliver advanced, edge-to-edge grip, delivering unmatched traction and security on any terrain, in any conditions
  • Axis Gait Technology: World’s first bilateral binding adjustment neutralizes variances in natural foot positions to ensure a parallel stride
  • Women’s HyperLink Binding: Easy-entry cradle and fast two-strap ratchet system offer exceptional all-day comfort and efficiency for smaller boots, including a set-it-and-forget heel strap
  • All-Condition Adaptability: Modular Flotation tails allow you the maneuverability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the optional, on-demand flotation 5-inch (13-cm) tails
  • Uphill Efficiency: Ergo Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on the steeps, with a new, ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip
