The MSR Lightning Ascent Snow Shows are not only the pinnacle in ultra light alpine travel but also in how their aggressive crampon and toe pivot provides the best holding power on steep icy terrain. They provide the type of holding power that tubular style frames simply can't on any angle of terrain but is particularly evident on traverses. This "Ascent" model of MSR snow shoe also feature the Ergo™ Televators which elevate your heel on ascents totally taking the burn from your calf muscles. 

If you love your snow adventures, don't settle for anything else. Seriously these things are the best an absolute Mountain Equipment staff favourite for many years!



  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and new durable steel DTX crampons provide serious bite in challenging conditions—delivering unmatched traction in technical terrain.
  • 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.
