MSR Logo, 5 kbIn 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 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,” says Parkhurst. “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.
