Imagine if you applied the solid lightweight construction and easy skiing rockered tips of Voile skis to an ultralight size geared for skimo racing and speed touring. Well that’s just what Voile did when they started the Wasatch Speed Project. The resulting ski by the same name is as unique as the namesake mountains that rise above Salt Lake City, Utah, where the skis are made.

A lot of people have been skiing uphill fast in the Wasatch mountains in recent years. They (and you) can now do so affordably with an American made ski. With a profile based on the popular Vector backcountry ski, the Voile WSP is designed to get you uphill fast and get you downhill with a smile.

  • Sizeable tip rocker helps avoid summersaults while charging downhill for the finish line.
  • Race weight of 805 grams (1 pound 12.4 ounces) keeps you competitive on the up.
  • Durable Voile construction is the same platform found on their much loved touring skis.
  • First skimo race ski built in North America, and now sold by an American Skimo Co.

Note that Voile suggests a skier weight range of 110-170 pounds for this ski.

I haven't ever skied another rando. ski so my review may be somewhat void. But ...

I have these set-up with Dynafit Speed Superlites and Scarpa Aliens. I have been skiing these for two months pretty regularly, mostly around the resort, in a fair mix of fresh cord., end-of-the-day cord., chundered off-piste, and a little pow. Overall, these little things do pretty dang well. The little bit of rocker is clutch. On the cord. they rip really well and they are definitely stiff enough to handle the lousy off-piste stuff you'll encounter racing. While I do feel like I'm ready to race them, I'm more so looking forward to running corn laps on these things this spring!

Again, I haven't skied any other rando. skis so I do wonder how they compare. The WSP definitely has some narrower specs. than most other rando. skis (Example: The Atomic Ultimate 65 has a 97 shovel; the WSP has an 84). Stiffness-wise, though, I wouldn't want anything stiffer than this (I'm 150 lbs., 5'11).

Overall, I'm pretty happy with these skis.

I've skied on these every day for the last week. I totally love these skis. Sure, for racing the weight isn't stellar, but if you're racing I believe you'll make up the time on the downhill. The rocker totally inspires confidence and it's really helping me get out of the quad burning back seat. They turn effortlessly (with rocker & upturned tail). They're stiffer than I thought they were going to be, making hard pack moguls no problem. The dimensions look like they're slim, but they're just as wide as my SkiTrab World Cups and ski like they are wider. The price is almost half of several of the Euro skis, plus the graphics are WAY cooler.
