Stomp Pads & Brakes!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

With the ever changing nature and range of shell design in AT Boots, it is crucial to make sure you are setting up your ZED Binding correctly. When you buy the ZED, make sure you or the shop technician installs the binding with the correct sized stomp pad or the brake. This will ensure that your are getting full support underneath the heel so the binding can operate as designed.

Many AT Tech/Pin compatible boots have varying heights and thicknesses of the heel and will require the brake (which is an add on purchase), a thin stomp pad or a thick stomp pad. The stomp pads and a measurement tool will come in the box with the binding to help you determine which one is correct for your boot.

I have attached pictures of boots with varying size heel heights. The green Dynafit boot is one that would be considered in the normal height range, while the blue salomon would be considered outside of the norm in heel height. The more you know!

Nothing eliminates boundaries like MSR’s Snowshoe Flotation tails, unique to MSR snowshoes. These Tails add flotation on-demand in deep snow or when carrying heavier packs. With them, you can start with a smaller, more agile snowshoe for most adventures. When conditions change, attach the tails easily for greater surface area. Light enough to carry on extended trips, they allow one pair of snowshoes to get you through it all. Modular Flotation Tails are available for all MSR snowshoes.

Our rugged Revo Ascent snowshoes are engineered to take you anywhere you want—or need—to go. That confidence starts with their ExoTract™ deck, which combines external steel teeth for gripping the contours of slopes, with supreme durability, and the torsional flex of plastic for excellent purchase. Steep terrain demands the security of our PosiLock™ AT bindings and Ergo™ Televators heel lifts, while the snowshoe’s reinforced nose and new higher-strength crampon withstand challenging conditions.

Our ultralight snowshoes are built on a solid foundation of our advanced 360° Traction™ frames and deliver a level of security that tubular frames simply can’t—especially on traverses. Dual-component PosiLock™ AT bindings offer our most secure attachment, while rugged decking ensures long-lasting durability. In technical terrain, the snowshoes’ steel cross members and easily engaged Ergo™ Televators back you up with every step. And like all of our snowshoes, Lightning Ascents offer the all-condition adaptability of our Modular Flotation tails.

Whether you’re snowshoeing, climbing or splitboarding, MSR’s DynaLock Ascent Carbon Poles were engineered to keep you moving fast and light through the alpine.
From fast ascents to remote traverses, DynaLock Ascent Poles keep snowshoers, mountaineers and splitboarders moving quickly on mountain objectives. Built of Kevlar-reinforced carbon fiber, these ultralight poles feature a quick-deploy design, and their tiny collapsed size fits inside alpine packs and travel bags. Equipped with our DynaLock mechanism, they offer 20 cm of length adjustability, and the ability to tighten the clamping force on the fly for no-slip security—perfect whether you’re bagging volcanoes or pushing hard from first light to last.
