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.
