To remain a contender in the backcountry ski category, the folks at Voile have learned two valuable lessons. (1) Never rest on your laurels. (2) Never think that minuscule tweaks in any ski's design will not alter its performance. Introducing the Voile SuperCharger. Now, before you think it's an even-stiffer and more-aggressive version of our original Charger, think again, because the SuperCharger is absolutely none of those things. In fact, it's a ski probably more akin to their venerable V8. Except that it's not quite as fat. And has a slimmer waist. As well as a wider, hard-working tail, and a more-subdued version of their signature "Voile Hybrid Rocker."

Blast through bump fields and weave between tight trees with the men's Voile SuperCharger skis, featuring a lightweight wood core and a hybrid rocker that lends float in fresh snow.

A supercharged ski season consists of traveling between hemispheres in search of the best backcountry turns, which means you'd have to take whatever condition you get as soon as your flight lands. Lucky for you, the Voile Men's SuperCharger Ski is versatile enough to handle windblown peaks in Bariloche and blower pow in the Wasatch.The SuperCharger's versatile 106mm waist and rockered tip and tail may lead you to assume that this ski is a solid powderhound (which it is), but camber underfoot makes sure it holds an edge on firmer snow. Voile built the SuperCharger with a lightweight aspen wood core that's been capped for a lightweight feel. Then, Voile added carbon and triaxial layers to ensure a stiffer feel and the torsional rigidity required to charge down just about any line.

"Voile Backcountry Skiing Supercharger Orange/Black 171 cm 52041711718. To remain a contender in the backcountry ski category we at Voile have learned two valuable lessons. (1) Never rest on your laurels. (2) Never think that minuscule tweaks in any ski's design will not alter its performance. Introducing the Voile SuperCharger. Now before you think it's an even-stiffer and more-aggressive version of our original Charger think again because the SuperCharger is absolutely none of those things. In fact it's a ski probably more akin to our venerable V8. Except that it's not quite as fat. And has a slimmer waist. As well as a wider hard-working tail. Oh and a more-subdued version of our signature Voile Hybrid Rocker. You can expect it to stick and hold a well-carved turn yet weave through tight trees and rocks with ease. It's definitely not a ski for riding switch but it may be our best ski ever for the bumps. (Did we just say that?) And of course it wouldn't bear our quirky name if it couldn't hold it's own in powder. So for skiers on either coast and all points in-between this might be the ideal ski. For skiers who enjoy making a variety of turn shapes and sizes in an even-larger variety of terrain and snow conditions so much the better. And for skiers who just want to work a bit less while tearing up the hill ditto that too. The all-new SuperCharger. Far from just a blend it's true varietal. And one grown right here in Utah USA."
