Design fads come and go all the time, with technologies that were touted as revolutionary being tossed aside without eulogy. Brands often jump on the bandwagon for a short ride. As they do, Voile waved at the bandwagon and dug deep into their roots to bring us the Hyper Drifter, modeled after the original, very popular Drifter. Today, with roughly a decade of high quality skis being made in the Drifter molds, Voile does the sensible thing: recreate the ski that has been a cult favorite since its inception, but to make the second version lighter and better suited for backcountry travel. The Hyper Drifter has an updated shovel, roughly 155mm wide, giving you more float than a boat full of foam. Early rise tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot means you get to float and bounce through the snow while still maintaining edge articulation and control. For the deep days we dream of all year, clip into the Hyper Drifter and start stacking laps-- you won't be able to refuse the call of 'just one more'.

  • Ultralight Paulownia construction along the whole length of the ski keeps things feeling consistent and springy, perfect for champagne powder all day long.
  • The super wide shovel and early rise tip combine to keep you on top of the snow both on the ups and the down, regardless of how light or deep the snow is.
  • The Hyper Drifter takes many of its design cues from the SuperCharger and V8, with a couple pounds shaved off to make for a more hiker-friendly weight.
