With a name like Hyper Charger, you’d expect the graphics to resemble something off the Millennium Falcon. Fortunately, Voile resisted that temptation, but they could not resist putting their Paulownia and carbon core into the wildly popular Super Charger chassis. Ironically, the result is a lot like the Millennium Falcon: a high-performance platform made nimble and quick by hyper technology; that can easily travel to the far reaches despite its appearance. Voile early rise tip shape, camber underfoot, and mid-100’s waist width makes the Hyper Charger a strong selection for a versatile ski in soft to variable conditions. It also has the ability to remain fun if things firm up unexpectedly…though you may have to use the Force.

  • Voile Early Rise technology fuels versatile performance.
  • 2mm edges and black ptex bases complete a durable package.
  • Comes with a free Wookie (Wookie not included).

Question from Rob McLeod
 
I'm considering purchasing 1 of 2 skis, the movement Alp tracks 106 lt or the voile hyper charger. I'm considering the 185 in either ski, and I'm 6 foot 3 inches, and weigh 185 lbs. I currently ski the dynafit dhaulgiri, and find it's performance in less than ideal powder conditions to be unpredictable.

I intend to ski whichever ski I get primarily in powder conditions, but I'm looking for a replacement for the dhauligiri that handles those non-perfect- powder conditions in a more user friendly manner.


Can you comment on how these 2 skis might meet my needs? Any pros or cons you have with either ski, etc

Hey Rob, thanks for reaching out! Both the AlpTracks 106 and Hyper Charger ski variable chop and hard snow quite well by the standard of wide-body powder skis, so you've got two great options. The main difference in feel that we detect between the two is that the AlpTracks can be skied from a variety of stances (front seat, back seat, perfectly balanced, slightly off balance) while the Hyper Charger really likes a more frontseat, aggressive, "run-and-gun" stance. Some of this comes down to mount point (Alp Tracks more forward-mounted than Hyper Charger), some to sidecut, and some to differential stiffness between tip and tail. The Hyper Charger is also a pinch damper and more amicable on refrozen chunder, while the Alp Tracks gets high marks for its energetic, "poppy" feel.

Coming from the Dhaulagiri, you would find both skis to be quite different, but the flatter tail of the Hyper Charger may be more your speed if you liked the Dhaulagiri's early-rise tip/flat-tailed profile. You might also consider skiing the 177cm/178cm length in the newer skis; I'm your same height/weight and find the 177/178 to be plenty of ski for everything except for, well, January in the Wasatch. :-)

Hope that helps -- don't hesitate to reach out to help@skimo.co for a more in-depth response!
