Women's Lightning Ascent

What began as a solution for women has become the top choice of anyone with a narrow gait, or those seeking the lightest possible alternative in our most aggressive snowshoe. We engineered our Women’s 360° Traction™ frames in conjunction with a renowned expert in athletic biomechanics, resulting in a lower-profile frame that saves weight and improves agility with narrow gaits. Paired with our PosiLock™ AT bindings to create our most secure attachment, new, aggressive Torsion2™ crampons, and the easily engaged Ergo™ Televators, they’ll back you up with every step.

  • Unrivaled Traction: 360° Traction frames deliver edge-to-edge grip, and split teeth of Torsion2™ crampons better distribute forces and offer more continuous contact—delivering unmatched traction on any terrain, in any conditions.
  • Secure Attachment: Two-piece, independently conforming PosiLock AT bindings create our most secure, freeze-resistant attachment, regardless of footwear.
  • 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 an ergonomic design that engages with a flick of a pole grip.
  • Low-Profile: Narrow frames are ideal for women, those with a narrow gait, or anyone seeking the lightest snowshoe possible.
