Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

"Voile Backcountry Skiing WSP Yellow/Black 160 cm 57041601718. Go figure. For those skiers who relish the pain of SkiMo racing or their newfound association with Eurotrash Voile now offers a terribly-reliable ski to further inflict anguish upon themselves: The Voile WSP. Yes further is accurate all right. Especially since the WSP and its sister The WSG are built to finish races without breaking beforehand. Thanks to its Paulownia wood core carbon-fiberglass construction and rockered tip the Men's WSP is light enough to climb uphill with speed yet stable enough to ski downhill without embarassment. And most importantly stay in one piece. Short for Wasatch Speed Project and born in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains the WSP is the world's first made in specialized factories SkiMo ski. Voile: It sounds French and has always meant lightweight skis. As such the advent of The WSP was probably inevitable."

Situated as the most efficient ski in Voile's line, the WSP makes no compromises when it comes to long-distance ski travel. Prepared to drive you up the skintrack at an unreasonable pace before guiding you down steep descents without sacrificing durability, the WSP is perfect for race day. A slim waist and relatively stiff flex pattern offers responsive skinning performance in a featherweight package. The ski's running length steel-edge with full sidewall construction predictably offers stable descending ability. However, unlike other SkiMo race skis the WSP holds equal importance to stability as durability, ensuring that your skis stay intact through the end of your race. Voile's Wasatch Speed Project ski amounts to a highly-competitive ascender that won't falter on steep descents or occasional encounters with unexpected rocks. Keeping efficiency at its core, the ski uses Voile's esteemed paulownia wood core blend boasting a featherweight feel with a surprisingly damp and stiff descending characteristic.
