  • Bindings fit a variety of boots, open wide for easy access, and feature 3 easily adjustable silicon instep straps and a heel strap for a secure fit
  • Steel crampons underfoot not only grip well, they provide stability and reduce heel drift for an efficient gait
  • Heel lifts ease the strain on your calves during steep ascents
  • All materials are waterproof, so they don't soak up water, freeze and get heavy; straps remain adjustable and easy to use in all conditions
  • Lightning Flotation Tails (sold separately) add buoyancy when walking in deep powder snow or carrying heavy loads
  • Please note: without tails, recommended load is 150 - 280 lbs., and with 5 in. tails, recommended load is 180 - 300 lbs.+
  • Recommended load specification for the MSR Lightning Ascent 30 snowshoes includes weight of hiker with gear; flotation will vary with snow conditions
