Voile Hyper Vector BC Ski
The Traction Pattern bases of the Voile Hyper Vector BC allow the adventurous skier to quickly dispatch with long, flat approaches and rolling terrain with much more efficiency than using traditional climbing skins. This is due to the time saved on transitions as well as superior glide over climbing skins. When employed in the right areas, the Hyper Vector BC is the ski that will take you further and allow you to find the areas where you won’t be competing with others for tracks. Perfect for those true adventurers with big plans over vast terrain, the scaled version of the Hyper Vector is made with the same modern lightweight core. It also boasts Voile’s legendary durability so you don’t have to worry about your gear out there. The Hyper Vector BC will take you further than ever before.
- Paulownia and carbon core keeps weight low and energy high.
- Voile Hybrid Rocker smooths all snow conditions and keeps the speed high.
- Medium radius side-cut allows for variable turn shapes.
- Full 2mm edges make no compromises in durability.
Update 2022/23: Alright Voile, these top sheets are pretty sweet. Well Done!

Questions & Reviews
I'm looking at the Hyper Vector BC and wondering about length. I'll be skiing rolling terrain, up/down moderate-to-steep open slopes and some tree'd trails in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I am 5'5 and currently 150 pounds but will be dropping weight now that I am retired and can get back to my normal active weight of about 130. Should I get the 151 or the 164. I come from a nordic background and kick and glide, but these will be AT set up and an Atomic Backland Pro boot. I'm not an aggressive alpine skier on the big mountain. More of an intermediate.
I'm 5'6", 125lbs, and my 164 Objectives feel too short for me, even here in the East. I'm thinking I'd like to go with a 171... and maybe move over to the HyperVectors. I read in one of the previous posts that the HV's ski short though; If I wanted a 171 Objective, would I likely want that in the HV's? Or even a 177?
In regards to the HyperVector, I would suggest leaning towards the 171cm. Although the HyperVector may feel as if they ski short for some, by common ski sizing the 171cm would be slightly sized up for you, therefore, compensating for a preference for a longer ski and the potential for the HyperVector to ski short. I think you'd find the 177cm to be too long.
I have a quesiton about mounting!
I found the boot center point using Voile's guide here: https://www.voile.com/Voile_Ski_Boot_Center_Chart.pdf
But I can't find any recommendations on mounting. My questions are
1) Would you normally mount these at boot center?
2) What size drill is recommended?
Note: I have all the jigs, bits, etc. that I need. Just need to be sure about the drill size/depth recommendations and boot center vs. back from center, etc.!'
It's wierd that Voile doesn't provide this guidance on their web site!
I'm 5'10", 180, experienced nordic and downhill skier...
As for bindings, you can certainly pair these with Shifts. If you are ever interested in exploring more lightweight options with a similar safety profile, reach out to email@example.com and we will get you sorted!
Are you going to have this skis in 177 cm length this season?
Can you send skis to Russia, and what post services do you use?
I’m looking forward to taking these on overnight tours. Their light weight and capability to tame most conditions should make for loads of fun. I’ve been a committed tele skier for 40 years. These skis are are practically as light as my 3-pin set up and much less work.
I am mostly skiing New England back country - rocks, close trees..., and to make matters worse, I'm not very good!
What do you think about 164cm?
The Voile Hyper Vector has a relatively forgiving construction as well as tip and tail rocker. This means that it "skis shorter" than other skis of an equivalent length. At 5'10". I think the 164cm might be a little short for you. The 171cm length will provide more stability at speed, but should still come around easily for those tight New England Trees! For availability on that length, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your help.
I purchased Atomic Backland Carbon boots from Skimo Co last year. Will they work with Voile Hypervector BC?
I'm 5'8" (172cm) and 155lbs. New to backcountry touring.
Was looking at the Hyper Vector BC with a 171cm length. This length would make them about mid-forehead. 164cm seems a bit short, but maybe not. But, I'm open to suggestions.
I can see a benefit to the fish scales to save almost constant skinning on and off.
Will be primarily skiing the dry powder and rolling hills of Idaho, rare using lift assist and resort use. Rare steep climb, but one never knows.
Thanks for reaching out! The 171cm seems very appropriate for your application. Benefits to the shorter skis would be more maneuverability in tight trees or shoots and a little more grip from the fish scale pattern. Given that you are talking about open areas at low angles the 171cm will give more float and better glide so I would lean in that direction. Hope this helps!
Thanks for the question, I think I'd point you towards the 177cm! The 171 may be a little under powered for your height & weight. Hope this helped!
The 164cm will be spot on. It will be an easier turning ski in the trees, tight couloirs and make for easier kick turns on the skin track. Without too much early rise and just a bit of tail rocker the Hyper Vector will ski like a longer ski compared to some other Voile's that have more rocker in the tip and tail. Happy skiing!
