MSR has issued a warning and recall for Denali Ascent and red Denali Classic snowshoes made between September and November 2001. While there is absolutely no danger to consumers, MSR has discovered that as a result of using a new plastic formulation, the snowshoe decks may begin cracking near the toe under extreme flexing or hard impacts. MSR is encouraging users to exchange shoes made during that period. Two date code dials on the bottom of the shoes can identify affected snowshoes. Those reading 9/01, X/01 and Y/01 should be exchanged. MSR has corrected the problem by reverting to its original plastic formulation.
