Shipping Info

This MSR snowshoe model attempts to combine the best features from the EVO and Lightning models into one. It uses a thin low-profile front design like the MSR EVO snowshoe for smooth glide and float when breaking trail, and some of the cookie cutter-like traction of the aluminum frame of the MSR Lightning snowshoe design.  One additional "toothed" section runs perpendicular across the bottom of the snowshoe directly under the ball of the boot for further increased grip while ascending.  Steel crampon-like points under the toe of the boot provide extra purchase up front when it's needed.  The MSR Hyperlink binding is their quickest and easiest to put on and off and adjust, and uses two straps with rachet-style buckles incorporating a micro-adjust lever feature for fine-tuning the tension on the go. The connection of the binding to the snowshoe deck pivots freely as you stride, but is extremely torsionally rigid side-to-side. This rigidity combined with the full-width traction of the snowshoe frame give the shoe superior performance when traversing across a slope by helping to keep your foot from twisting off of the edge of the deck and remain solidly on top while allowing the side edge of the snowshoe to bite in to the slope.  Additional Ergo™ Televator heel lifts can be deployed to lift your heel up off of the deck of the snowshoe to relieve the strain off of your calve muscles when ascending uphill as the snow gets firmer and steeper.  The purposeful blend of the flexible plastic ExoTract™ deck material with the rigid metal traction frame system allows for the shoe to have a small of torsional flex for subtle extra conformation of the snowshoe to varied surface conditions.  While most people will be happiest and most comfortable using snowshoes that are no longer than 20-25 inches for the vast majority of outings, MSR does also make optional Modular Tails that can be added to this model for extra flotation if desired.  These snowshoes climb firm snow well enough that it is easy to put yourself in situations where you may be finding yourself wanting an ice axe in your hand and could be considering putting mountaineering crampons on your boots instead. The right tool for the right job.
