MSR® Unveils All-New Revo™ Series Snowshoes


MSR (Mountain Safety Research®), the Seattle-based manufacturer of high-performance outdoor equipment, has gripped the snowshoe market for more than a decade with innovative designs that provide the best in traction, flotation, and versatility.

In Fall/Winter 2014, MSR debuts its all-new Revo™ Series snowshoes that, for the first time, combine the superior grip of metal perimeter traction with the unrivaled durability, torsional flex and cold-temperature performance of its proven plastic decks.


“MSR has always focused on traction for security, and precise flexibility for comfort and performance,” said Chris Parkhurst, vice president of MSR. “The Revo Series is a stellar performer in all of these areas and is the most versatile design we have ever created.”

The comfort-driven Revo Explore snowshoes provide durability and ease of use, and are built for all-day explorations on a variety of snow conditions and terrain. The design features a proprietary ExoTract™ Deck with surefooted steel traction walls that meld the power of perimeter traction with a flexible deck. Combined, this engineering delivers exceptional grip and a more natural foot position on traverses, climbs and descents.

The Revo Explore is further enhanced with an all-new HyperLink™ Binding that pairs comfort and security with a familiar, glove-friendly ratchet system and an easy-entry cradle. The two-strap design eliminates pressure points and can easily be adjusted on the go with minimal effort.

The American-made Revo™ Series includes three models: the Revo Ascent, Revo Explore, and Revo Trail. All MSR Lightning™ and Revo Series snowshoes are available in 22- and 25-inch sizes to accommodate height and weight.
