No other snowshoe provides the 360-degree traction of the Lightning Ascents. Engineered for moving quickly in technical terrain, Lightning Ascent snowshoes represent the pinnacle of ultralight and aggressive all-terrain performance. 

Updated: Introducing the new Paragon Binding- Simplicity has its strength. MSR has called this design their simplest, most effective binding ever, and they're not wrong. The new binding system will deliver the ultimate in comfort and foot control while traversing demanding terrain and is featured on the premium Ascent series.

  • ​​Ultimate Security: Mesh strap stretches over your boot for maximum stability and control, while toe stops keep it in place when descending.
  • No Hot Spots: Glove-like fit is free of pressure points, providing the superior comfort needed to hike, climb and traverse all day.
  • No-Fuss: Minimal straps and toe stops make foot placement fast and easy. And durable urethane sheds snow & water, keeping things light.
  • No Tools Needed: Simple key-lock allows for tool-free field maintenance, adding peace of mind when exploring remote areas.
    ​MSR Women’s Lightning Ascent snowshoes feature a lower-profile frame that’s ideal for those with a narrow gait or anyone seeking a lighter alternative in this aggressive snowshoe. 


    • Unrivaled Traction: 360 Traction frames deliver superb edge-to-edge grip, and durable steel DTX crampons provide serious bite in challenging icy conditions—delivering unmatched traction in technical terrain.
    • Paragon Binding: Comfortable, freeze-resistant mesh strap wraps securely around a wide range of boots for ultimate security, while toe stops offer fast, precise foot alignment.
    • All-Condition Adaptability: The ability to add on Modular Flotation Tails allows the maneuverability of a smaller, primary snowshoe with the added, on-demand flotation of optional 13-cm tails. 
    • Uphill Efficiency: Ergo Televators reduce fatigue and increase traction on steep inclines with an ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.
    • Lightweight Strength: The Ballistic-grade deck material is exceptionally durable despite its light weight and will not let you down in the field.
