    MSR Men's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes - The Men's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes by MSR are the first choice of professionals, alpinists and everyday explorers alike, anyone needing to get from point A to point B, regardless of what lies between. Now even more durable thanks to new Torsion2 crampons, these aggressive snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of advanced 360 degree Traction frames and deliver a level of ultralight security that tubular frames simply can’t, especially on traverses. Dual-component PosiLock AT bindings offer the 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 modular flotation tails. If you want an unbeatable, lightweight combination of unrelenting traction and bombproof reliability, then you want the Men's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes by MSR.

    Ease of entry is fair. I must have my gate as natural as possible and it took a few adjustments to get the pivot point and foot position correct. Shoes pivot on a traction bar and do not have the lateral flex you get from the Atlas shoes, but is not too hard on the ankles while traversing. Handles all conditions, last trip I went from soft deep snow to wind blown hard pack on a single ascent with no issues. The tails are also a great addition as they come on and off quickly.




    Sweet as can get! Very versatile snowshoe. Aggressive, but really light. Easy to put on and off. Used it on some steep approaches and few ridges full of fairly deep snow in NH Whites, on frozen and steep snow, worked very surely. I'm 6 feet and 165 and with 20 pounds in my backpack had no issues at all, I got 22 inch model which supposed to be up to 180 pounds. I love them shorter, feel very compact, with not even a hint of under performing. Had other snowshoes in the past, 25 inch, but Ascents feel extremely feather weight and precise!
