Packed with the latest technologies, the MSR Lightning Axis Snowshoe for Women represent a giant leap in snowshoeing performance, ease and comfort. First, the new Axis Gait Efficiency system allows you to laterally adjust bindings independently of the frame, ensuring efficient, parallel-tracking snowshoes regardless of natural toe-out and toe-in stances. Combined with an aggressive and low-profile 360° Traction frame adapted for a women's narrow gait, these shoes offer absolute snowshoeing efficiency. In addition, new SpeedLock bindings offer set-it and forget-it simplicity with all-terrain comfort, while new Ergo Televators save you on the steeps. And of course, you get the benefit of our most aggressive, 360° Traction frames and Modular Flotation tails to provide you with the confidence and versatility you want to enjoy broad range of snowshoeing experiences.

Love these snow shoes! They are light and the narrow width is more comfortable for my hips. They grip well on hills and slopes and they are quick to put on and take off. I did not change the axis angle yet because I haven't needed it. I would highly recommend spending the extra money and getting the MSR snow shoes even if you did not pay the extra for the axis feature.
Great shoe once you figure out the binding.
