MSR Lightning Ascent – Snowshoes: Reviews

   Photo: Mark Wiens


This do-it-all shoe scored high marks whether we were strolling a rec path or marching off with a multi-day load. The keys are low weight and a nimble feel made possible by the shoe's unique crampon design. Small teeth are cut directly into the frame, which presses points into the terrain as it flexes. 3.1 lbs, 22", 25", 30";

PAIR IT WITH Hi-Tec V-Lite Recon Mid eVent

Bonus: Fine-tuning the binding can be done while wearing gloves.

Bummer: Macro tuning the binding is best done at home.
