Ya, in case you're wondering, the Voile V8 skis are as good as they look! Backcountry magazine calls them ''Voile's best skis to date''. It's a powder ski that's quick and lively on hard pack, and a BC touring ski that can rip at the resort. This is very impressive, because it weighs less than the Voile Charger. Fall 2013/Winter 2014 cosmetics Built with Voile's signature, lightweight ski construction Wide shovel and rockered tip offers plenty of float in powder Tapered, slightly raised tail for smooth turn completion Turn radius for 186 cm: 18.4 meters Made in SLC, UT USA
The Voile V8 backcountry skis have wide tips and narrow tails for lots of float in powder, while the tight sidecut radius and short running length keep them playful and easy to control when carving. Lightweight construction makes the V8 skis a good choice for long tours; aspen wood cores are wrapped in fiberglass that is woven with carbon for a light, snappy feel. Wide 146mm tips and 115mm waists (186cm ski) provide ample flotation in soft snow, while the large sidecut and short turning radius keep them fun on harder snow. Early-rise tips help you float through the deep powder on the descent and ease trail breaking in deep snow during the ascent. Tails of the skis turn up just a touch and are compatible with the tail attachments of most climbing skins (sold separately). Traditional sidecut underfoot lets you carve turns on firm snow as you make your way out of the woods. Voile V8 skis have sintered bases that retain wax well and provide good glide. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo.
Possibly Voile s best ski yet, the V8 has a wide shovel and a narrow tail so you ll get plenty of float in powder.

By all accounts, the V8 from Voile is one of the best skis to come out this season for the varied terrain & conditions encountered by dedicated riders. There's a wider tip to push float to the limit and less weight in the layup for uphill efficiency. The added sidecut makes slicing and drifting a cinch while providing positive traction over icy conditions.
