MSR Lightning Ascent Womens Snowshoes (2011)
The MSR Women’s Lightning Ascent snowshoe is designed and engineered especially for a woman's gait. The MSR Women's Lightning Ascent is a high performance women’s snowshoe that accounts for subtle differences in the female stride. The Lightning Ascent is an efficient snowshoe for anyone with a narrow gait, or those seeking the lightest possible alternative in our most aggressive snowshoe.
