If you’re MSR and you’re thinking snowshoes, then you virtually redesign your entire line! New for 2011, MSR has taken this humble mode of winter transportation to new heights. Long one of the most innovative snowshoe manufacturers, they have taken proven features and integrated new and exciting technology which enhance performance and durability. Read on… From MSR: “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 Womenês 360ç TractionÈ 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 new, most secure, dual-component PosiLockÈ AT bindings to create our most secure attachment, Modular Flotation tails, PivotÈ Crampons and new, easily-engaged ErgoÈ Televators back you up with every step.”
