In a world where women's skis are often just tweaked men's skis, the Voile Supercharger was an exception-the women's version came first. The idea came from discussions and feedback from their female customers, who wanted a more playful, faster turning ski that could still handle the big mountain terrain they loved. And so the Women's Supercharger began to take shape. A flat tail, tightened turning radius, and a rounder flex mean more responsive, intuitive turns. Meaning it's fast in tight, technical terrain, but still holds its own when carving big bowl turns or carving hardpack. And with a detuned version of their hybrid rocker, it blows through crud and floats like a powder god (or powder goddess, as it were).

Made with ripping female skiers in mind, Voile SuperCharger women's skis offer both light weight and durability for backcountry touring. Playful and easy to pivot, they eat up big mountain terrain.
While its name might lead you to believe that the Voile Women's SuperCharger Ski is a sort of battery-powered, high-energy animal that just-won't-stop-skiing, it's in fact designed to cater to your more human-powered pursuits. With its women-specific construction, the SuperCharger caters to female rippers who are looking for a backcountry touring ski that's able to handle a little bit of hardpack, powder, and even some bumps--should they be desired.More specifically, the reasons behind the SuperCharger's versatility lay in a few astute and well-crafted technologies. Starting with its subdued Hybrid Rocker construction, the SuperCharger boasts a mid-fat waist that makes it touring-friendly, while the wide, Clydesdale-esque tail and gently raised tip offer just enough adaptability that enable it to blast through crud and float through powder with ease. Not to mention, this same rocker construction allows you to seriously commit to a well-carved, deeply delicious turn, yet totally dispels the belief that good edges mean you won't be able to bounce lightly and thread the needle through tight trees.And of course, without the aspen wood core wrapped in fiberglass and woven carbon, the previous paragraph is all just a bunch of dashed dreams and fancy words. The lightweight construction ultimately makes the Supercharger ideal for tours in deep snow, while the wood core, triaxial fiberglass, and carbon laminates offer a light and snappy feel underfoot. Wrapping this whole package up are the steel edges that, when combined with the rocker, provide just the right amount of stiffness and an aggressive sensation that holds its own no matter the conditions or terrain.
