  • Sale
  • Regular price $286.00

Lightning Explore snowshoes represent a giant leap in snowshoeing performance, ease and comfort. It begins with the elite performance of MSR's 360° Traction™ frames, featuring advanced, edge-to-edge grip. Next, new HyperLink bindings feature a redesigned fast and easy ratchet system and get a comfort boost from EVA foam cushions that cradle the foot. Finally, you get the benefit of MSR's Ergo Televators for steeper slopes, and add-on Modular Flotation tails—all to provide the versatility you need to enjoy a broad range of snowshoeing experiences.

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames and Pivot™ crampons deliver reliable grip in variable terrain and conditions, both on the trails and off.
  • HyperLink Binding: Easy-entry cradle with new EVA foam cushions for all-day comfort and a simplified two-strap ratchet system for even faster entry and exit. Includes macro-adjustment straps for comfort with a wider range of boot sizes.
  • All-Condition Adaptability: 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 a new, ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.
