Perfect for beginners who want traction and flotation on gentle terrain, the Womens MSR Lightning Flash 25 Snowshoes are lightweight with easy-to-use bindings. Designed with a narrower frame width for women, these snowshoes are perfect for anyone with a narrow gait. The sturdy aluminum frames have teeth all the way around for additional traction beyond the ice-griping bite of the steel crampons underfoot. Speedlock bindings secure your foot in with a wide comfy toe strap that adjusts without having to take off your gloves and a heel strap that wont slip once you set it. If you find yourself drawn to more challenging terrain, you can add an additional instep strap for better security (sold separately). If youre out in deep snow with a heavy load, add the 5-inch tails for more floatation (sold separately). Explore the snow-drenched woods quietly and comfortably when youre hiking with the MSR Lightning Flash 25 Snowshoes for women.
