Don't miss out on your next trek through a winter wonderland due to improper footwear. Throw the Women's Lightning Ascent Snowshoes on your boots and stride through the snow with confidence. The decks are made from durable ballistic nylon to make sure they're tough enough to handle just about anything. 360-degree traction frames ensure a solid grip on any surface, while the Torsion2 crampons combine to offer stability on steep, sideways, or flat terrain. PosiLock AT bindings are an excellent blend of stability and support, and the Ergo Televator heel risers prevent your calves from cramping up during extended periods of uphill traffic. If the snow gods see fit to reward you with lots of fluffy goodness, throw the modular flotation tails on the back (flotation tails sold separately) for extra float, especially when using a heavy pack.
