The Women's Lightning Explore Snowshoes from MSR are packed full of fun features to help you out on your next snowshoe adventure. Ballistic nylon on top will hold up to the most rigorous of outings, and the HyperLink bindings provide excellent support. 360-degree traction frames let you find purchase when the ground is anything but level, and the pivot crampons make sure your feet and ankles stay comfortable as well. Additionally, these snowshoe bindings can be adjusted laterally with the Axis Gait technology, independent of the frame, to ensure a good fit and smooth stride. Ergo Televator heel-risers prevent premature leg-fatigue when you're out climbing something steep.

Nice Snow Shoes
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Got these for my wife for Christmas, and she's enjoyed them quite a bit.
They are very supportive and heavy duty snow shoes. The bindings are strong, can be adjusted to just the right fit, and you don’t have to worry about them slipping or becoming unhooked. Great for hiking, though a bit heavy if you are looking to run or cover distance for time.
10" Straps Are Available...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The 2016 snowshoes using the Men’s HyperLink binding (Revo Explore & Lightning Explore men’s models) are now coming with two additional 10” straps to accommodate customers with bigger feet and larger boots. IN fact, since the Hyperlink Snowshoe binding has been produced (2 seasons now) 10” strap kits are available free of charge from MSR and can be installed easily by the user. Please Note: the 2016 (current season) version has the straps tucked between the two snowshoes.
MSR Snowshoes HyperLink Binding Overview
what would be the best snow show for park city, utah. I want to be able to use it in all terrain. New to snowshoeing but athletic. grip is important to me and would like a snow shoe I could use on areas with powder but also "run" with on more packed terrain. Also, can I use my ski polls for snow snowshoeing? I was looking at the Tubbs Flex (leaning to the trek model versus the alp), Tubbs Expedition, and MSR lightning. I am wondering if utah has too much powder for Tubbs Flex... I don't plan on carrying weight or camping.... day exploring/exercise all over the terrain. Is there a lesser priced shoe that would work for my needs? Grip and side stepping feel important (I am 5'8, 125 without snow gear and 31yrs old) --- I could be in powder, on an icy hill, or semi packed hill or groomed areas all in the same day.
Thank you. (I like the mobility the lighting showed when a guy "ran" in it- could the Tubbs do the same? Is one brand better than another?
I commented on your other questions but I'd go for the MSR Revo Ascent over these due to the bindings having better adjustability on the Ascent series. The bindings on the
Lightning Expore snowshoes will be faster to get in and out but not what I'd want in terms of having a secure connecting for what you're looking to do.
