"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."
Americans are all about speed, so how come we've never made a killer skimo ski until now' There's no good answer, but Salt Lake City's own Voile decided it was time to change that, so they made the new WSP Ski to be a superlight rando choice in the finest Euro-Lycra tradition. Designed to get you up in a hurry and down with reasonable ease, the WSP (Wasatch Speed Project) weighs just 1. 75 pounds per ski, courtesy of its ultralight paulownia wood core and carbon fiberglass cap construction. The design also keeps the WSP plenty stiff for serious descents down icy couloirs and techy faces, which compliments the sturdy underfoot camber. It's only 63mm underfoot, but the moderate tip rocker helps the WSP handle soft snow better than its width would suggest, so you won't be overwhelmed if you encounter some pow on your trip back down to the parking lot.
The Wasatch Speed Project backcountry skis have ample tip rocker and Voile signature lightweight construction for fast ski mountaineering trips and randonee races from the Wasatch to Chamonix.
From the heart of the rocky mountains comes the first American-made skimo ski, the new Voile Wasatch Speed Project (WSP). With ample tip-rocker straight from the Vector and their signature lightweight construction, the WSP is built to climb-from the Wasatch to Chamonix.
