The new collection features three models that combine MSR’s best comfort and traction features in profiles that complement a narrower gait and feminine stature. Each women’s-specific model is built with a low-profile, tapered construction that minimizes weight and improves agility. 

“A properly shaped and fitted snowshoe helps reduce fatigue by enabling a more natural stride,” said Chris Parkhurst, vice president of MSR. “Rather than having to adapt to the discomfort of wider snowshoes, each Revo women’s design ensures women can spend more time enjoying winter environments on their own terms.” 

All MSR women’s-oriented frame shapes, engineered with input by an athletic biomechanics expert, are fitted with slightly narrower bindings that accommodate a complete range of women’s winter boots. 

Each Revo model features a proprietary ExoTract™ Deck with surefooted steel traction walls that meld the power of perimeter traction with a precision-built flexible deck that ensures superior grip and allows the feet to maintain a natural position on traverses, climbs and descents.
