It might sound a little fishy (pun intended), but scales on a backcountry ski are quite practical. Your typical alpine touring ski setup requires skins, but the Hyper V6 BC eliminates that need for many climbs with Voile's Traction Pattern Base extending for roughly half the length of the ski directly under foot. When moving through rolling or low angle terrain, this ski increases efficiency by eliminating the weight of skins and time lost to repetitive transitions for minor undulations. For steep and icy skin tracks, skins can be applied per usual in the event that the fish scales aren't offering the grip you want. The Hyper in the name Hyper V6 BC means that Voile took the previous model and doubled the carbon inside and used a lightweight paulownia wood core to keep things light. Embrace the scales, even if it does sound a little fishy at first-- you won't regret it.

  • Traction Pattern Base eliminates the need for skins in all but the steepest climbs, saving weight and transition time for tours in undulating terrain.
  • Earplugs (unfortunately) not included, as the only real downside of the fish scales underfoot is a slight humming noise on harder or packed snow.
  • Typical Voile durability and quality forms the basis for this ski, with the same core construction that the rest of their Hyper line boasts.
  • Camber underfoot helps you hold an edge in icy or variable conditions, regardless of the slope angle or how tightly you're puckered.
  • With an early rise rockered tip and 100mm waist [183cm], this lightweight ski still knows how to float and glide through soft snow.
  • Made right here in Salt Lake City, Utah, just like Skimo Co.
