Demanding winter ascents require equipment as tough as you are, which is why we created the Denali Ascent snowshoes. These lightweight, technically superior snowshoes offer incredible performance on ice and snow-covered landscapes.
Deck Platform: Expedition proven, nonstick deck sheds snow and ice.
Modular: 4- and 8-inch flotation tails make MSR snowshoes a 3-in-1 package, eliminating the need for multiple pairs of snowshoes.
Steel Traction Bars: Serrated edges run the length of the shoe on both sides and grip the snow for unmatched traction while traversing.
Televator Heel Lifter: When needed, they support the heel to reduce calf fatigue on long ascents.
Durable Steel Crampons: Hardened steel crampons with four aggressive front teeth and three rear teeth offer unrivaled traction. *
Steel Saber Teeth: Provide extra grip in hard-packed snow.
Braking Bars: Quad-point braking bars work in conjunction with the steel crampons to stop you in your tracks.
Heel Stabilizer: Crampon extension eliminates heel drift while traversing.
Flexible Binding: Packs flat; stays moisture-free and adjustable in freezing conditions.
* Not a substitute for crampons
