Drawing on the tried-and-true performance of the classic Evo Ascent, MSR has equipped its Revo Ascent snowshoe with maximum traction, increased durability, and secure bindings for challenging conditions and demanding climbs.
The streamlined profile of the Revo Ascent snowshoe optimizes agility and efficiency by promoting an easy, natural stride. The ExoTract platform is comprised of aluminum framing with aggressive teeth and injected-molded decking has reactive flex that enables the shoe to respond properly on uneven surfaces. A stainless steel, pivoting crampon moves freely but is designed to not over rotate, allowing you to maintain a free range of motion without jeopardizing balance.
The PosiLock AT Binding has a 2-piece body and four low-friction straps that conform to any footwear. The binding provides easy adjustability and security in any type of weather. On steep terrain, the Revo Ascent's Televator heel lifter can be easily pulled into position with a gloved hand to reduce calf fatigue and better distribute load across the entire frame.
The Revo Ascent is available in 22-inch and 25-inch size options. MSR's suggested weight recommendations are as follows: up to 180 pounds for 22-inch snowshoes and 120-220 pounds for 25-inch snowshoes. A modular design allows you to attach the Revo Ascent snowshoe to the MSR Revo Tail (sold separately) when conditions and weight demand greater flotation.
The MSR Revo Ascent snowshoe is sold in pairs.

Real Customer Reviews
- Well Made. Secure
Likes: Seem well made and I like the 3 straps over the boot top to better secure the boot to the deck. Time will tell about the longevity of the rubber straps.
Dislikes: With my size and weight ( 6'3" and 200 lbs) they don't seem to keep me floated well on top of the snow. I thinks I'll need the extra tails for anything other than packed trails-in which case I might be able to use just my hiking boots.
In general, these and other snowshoes from other manufacturers as well, are WAY overpriced in my opinion.
- Excellent Product
Likes: I was looking for a snowshoe that fit my 10.5 mens shoe size well and was the right area to support 165 lbs. This product works well for my size. The design seems very durable so far. The binding fits well with the boots i have. The rigid metal area below helps grip on ice.
Dislikes: So far, I have not found any big downsides to the product. A little more plastic or some sort of protection on the sides would help the aesthetics because the shoes easily hit one another when trekking.
