If you aren’t having a good time skiing the Voile Hyper Vector, stop and consider whether you really like skiing. It doesn’t get any more fun than this. With a shape and dimensions to handle any condition, turn-initiation bordering on telepathic, and a personality allowing for uninhibited speed, this ski can do it all.
Continuing the direction from the Vector to the Ultra Vector, the Hyper Vector combines the strengths of the skis before it: the ability to charge hard with excellent edge hold. What brings the Hyper Vector to the forefront of the line is Voile’s modern Paulownia and carbon core technology, reducing the weight of the substantially over prior versions. Getting this level of performance, versatility, and fun out of a ski is a rare experience and Voile seems to have nailed the recipe.

Similar to Fred above I'm curious about the Hyper V6 & Hyper Vector... thanks for answering that question.
How is the flex of the Hypervector compared to the original Blizzard ZeroG 95 (185cm)? I've been skiing the ZG 95 for several seasons now and would like something a bit easier & more calm for general Wasatch touring.
Hey Fred P, the flex in both the Hyper Vectors and Hyper V6's are significantly softer than the Zero G's while the V6's will be even softer than the Vectors. The Hyper Vectors will definitely be an easier ski for general touring and will be a blast in the Wasatch.
Any thoughts on Hyper Vector vs Hyper V6?? Similar dimensions but the Vector is a little stiffer, right? Does the Hyper Vector feel hooky or can it go fast without feeling like it’s sending you back uphill?
Hello Fred! The main differences between the ski is the side cut and flex pattern. The Vector has a larger turning radius and a stiffer tail. The V6 was developed to have a ski with similar dimensions as the Vector but re-designed to be more playful in soft snow. You should feel comfortable skiing the Vector fast without feeling hooky. While the V6 is a little easier to slide the tail compared the Vector.
Hey Scythian! The difference in construction is only one layer of Carbon weave and an Aspen core. So the ski is more damp, which would be nice when skiing firmer or cut up snow. If you are just skiing tracked pow and want the lightest ski, the Hyper Vector will not disappoint.
I am 5'11" and weigh 175 lbs. Voile's website gives a recommended skier weight for each length, and I fall in the 177 cm category. However, I prefer shorter skis and wonder if this recommendation should be considered over personal preference or if I would be ok on the 171 cm, which they recommend for skiers weighing 110-150 lbs.
