Here's what other sites are saying:
It's like putting tire chains on a sports car! The Voile Vector BC skis have the proven nimble performance of the Vector and the addition of a no-wax pattern base, for skinless climbing. The hybrid rocker tip profile keeps you out of trouble in variable conditions and the narrowish waist makes for quick turns on firm snow. Rockered tip, traditional camber, and a raised tail Patterened waxless base Cap construction and aspen wood core for weight reduction and durability Handmade in USA
Inspired by the hybrid rocker design of Voile's award winning Drifter and Charger skis, the Voile Vector is an ultra lightweight, vertical grabbing, edging machine. From long backcountry tours to a day of cranking turns inbounds, the Vector is a truly unique package with it's mid-fat width, super light weight, and powder friendly hybrid rocker design.
Your backcountry gear just got a whole lot lighter since you can now leave your skins at home when you tour with the Voile Vector BC Ski. With the same killer dimensions as the Vector Ski, the Vector BC features an advanced, waxless base pattern that facilitates backcountry touring on flat or rolling ground and provides the ability to climb straight up moderate-angle ascents and traverse across steeper uphills without the hassle of having to use climbing skins. Clearly a game-changer in the touring ski industry, the BC offers optimal simplicity when you don't want to sacrifice the weight, space, or expense of skins. Designed with a tip rocker, regular camber underfoot, and slightly raised tail profile, the Vector BC floats through ankle-deep pow and busts through crud, yet is narrow and shapely enough to hold a solid edge on hardpack and wind-slab terrain. Thanks to its cap construction and lightweight aspen wood core, the Vector BC doesn't bog you down on long, epic backcountry tours. Cap construction also reduces weight for quick climbing and easy maneuverability. Its semi-wide-radius sidecut gives you high-speed stability when you strategically navigate down a tight chute or enjoy floaty turns on wide open bowls. In other words, the Vector BC lightens the load and speeds up the pace.
Using the rockered shape of a true powder ski, Voile created the Vector BC, a lightweight ski that's just on the skinny side when compared with its big powder brothers. With 94 mm at the waist and a shorter running length, it gets you through icy crud and bulletproof hardpack - but turn it loose off-piste and you get a super-light ride that still knows how to float.
