MSR Lightning Tail
Where to Buy
Optional tails make the snowshoe longer, providing more flotation in conditions that require it, such as breaking trail or deep powder. In the new MSR snowshoe line, modular flotation tails are now an option for all new lightning model snowshoes, making them more versatile than ever before.
Lightning Tails are sold separately and are not compatible with Lightning-frame snowshoes released before the 2010-2011 season.
