When the conversation about a “quiver of one” ski gets brought up in backcountry skiing circles, inevitably the Voile V6 is discussed as a contender. It’s well-balanced underfoot width, just the right amount of rocker for soft conditions, and ample camber for confident edge grip leave little to be desired in just about any snow condition. The only way it could really improve in our eyes is if it could lose some weight.

Enter the Hyper V6. Combining the sublime performance of the V6 with Voile’s buttery paulownia + carbon core construction, the HV6 has raised the bar. The Hyper series gives up precious little in terms of backcountry ski performance but loses significant grams, perhaps narrowing the discussion about the ultimate quiver of one.

  • Round flex pattern is confidence inspiring and buttery smooth.
  • Tip-to-tail edges are 2mm thick and aren’t afraid of a little abuse.
  • Polyamide top sheet is abrasion and scratch resistant.
  • Black p-tex bases are hardy, fast, and hold wax well.

Question from alan
 
How well will the Hyper V6 perform with a tele binding?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Alan! Structurally, probably fine. I haven't heard anything that says you can't use the Hyper series with a tele binding. I am not a tele skier though so I can't comment exactly on how well it'd handle in that regard, but based on everything that I've heard from our staff that has skied the V6, these guys are FUN!

Question from John Raich
 
I am looking for a reasonably light weight backcountry ski primarily for soft snow/powder. I mostly do 1-day tours on moderate terrain (25 to 35 degrees), below and above treeline. I would probably prefer a reasonably mellow ski over one that requires an aggressive style. I am considering the following skis:
Movement Alp Tracks 100 LT
Voile Hyper V6
DPD Wailer 99 Tour 1
Could you comment on the suitability of the skis for this type of skiing and ant pros and cons?
10/6/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey John! All of those skis will do really well in that style of terrain with the Alp Tracks 100 rewarding the most aggressive skier, Wailer being the most forgiving, and the V6 is somewhere in the middle. I'd say it has more to do with the boot you'll be skiing in than anything. The lighter the boot the more forgiving you'll want it to be when you're dealing with skis this wide.
