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

Question from Eric
How do these scaled skis perform in springtime? Would they work well for a low angle logging road approach on crunchy refrozen snow, or do they only work well on soft snow?
Answer from Jeff
Eric, I have only hiked with someone using them on Spring snow and they worked better then I imagined. Completely frozen, not really. But as long as it is low angle, will work pretty well in any snow. And of course you can use skins on them when too frozen or steep.

Question from Sydney
I am between Voile’s Objective BC and Hyper/ultra vector BC skis. I am 135 lbs and 5’7”. I will be ski touring across the Juneau Icefield for two months during the summer, carrying 30-50% of my body weight in a pack. I would like to keep light, move fast, and have some fun on the downhills. I am leaning towards the 171 Objective BC skis. Is this the right size for me? Which Voile ski do you recommend?
Answer from Niko M
Hi Sydney! Sounds like some very cool summer plans are in the works. No bad decisions here, however, I think the Objectives get the final nod largely due to the uphill efficiency considerations. The 171cm is traditionally slightly long for you, but with such a heavy pack and the softer flex found in the Objectives tails, I think the 171cm provides some real advantages. Continuing, with the shape of the Objectives, I doubt you'd find the 171cm to be overly cumbersome. With this unique shape and forgiving flex, I think it'd be fair to say you'll have some fun on them as well :) Once again, no bad decisions here. The Hyper Vectors are friendly for both the ups and downs and if you decide you'd like a little more ski under your feet, they'd be a fantastic choice!

Question from Theresa
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.

Answer from Theresa
To clarify my earlier question, it’s 154 not 151. Also reference to big mountain is about my skiing level, not that I intend to ski on piste.
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Theresa, the 164 would be a good all around length for you and will provide a good mix of weight and maneuverability with stability. Voile's tip and tail rocker provide an easy and gradual turn initiation and also allow the ski to feel a little shorter than you might think.

Question from Joe S.
Comparing sizing of HyperVectors and Objectives?
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?
Answer from Niko M
Hi Joe!
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.

Question from Richard Dilibero
i am very interested in the 171 hyper vector bc as a work horse for laps on a 25 degree slope. curious if the scale will be enough for a skin track up to 30 degrees and still preform in chutes as steep as 40- 45 degrees while fully locked in. cheers!
Answer from Jeff
Hello Richard, The Voile BC textured bases grip surprisingly well, but not really meant for that use. 25-30 degrees is pretty much too steep for skins. And the scales can affect turning on firm snow on slopes like that.

Question from Ush
I'm a 5'11" 190lb very experienced skier(alpine, BC, and XC). I am looking to get a pair of HyperVector BC ski in 177 to use in the Adirondacks of Northern NY and some tours in VT and NH. I just can't seem to pick a binding. My boots are Scarpa Maestrale 28.0. The main feature I want in a binding is low weight, but I also see myself transitioning A LOT when using these fishscale skis because the approaches around here are constantly up and down. So, a strong second to weight is easy transitions. Any binding recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Ush. There are many great options that work, but unfortunately, you'll still need to step out of every binding to free your heel after descending. Most would find either a race or lean binding to work best with this ski. For a personalized recommendation please fill out our Binding Finder.
Answer from Ush
What about a Vipec Evo 12 binding? Would that binding allow for quicker transitions on rolling terrain with the scaled ski?
Answer from jbo
Hi Ush, actually yes, we did just start carrying the Vipec Evo which allows switching modes without exiting the toe. The Ski Trab TR-2 also did while it was around.

Question from Eric S
Hey guys, I purchased a pair of Objective BCs in 171, and Hypervector BCs in 154.

I have a quesiton about mounting!

I found the boot center point using Voile's guide here:

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!

Answer from Brett S
Hey Eric, we recommend mounting these with the boot center on the factory recommended line. The bit needed is 3.5 x 9mm, and the insertion depth is 9mm.

Question from John H
I'm looking to pair this ski with some kind of AT boot and AT binding (probably FRITSCHI TECTON 12). I'm skiing backwoods VT (currently on Voile Vector BC (originals) with Scarpa T4s and Hardwire bindings) Ideally I want a boot that's easy to use and that will allow for quick transitions between downhill and fish scale assist touring modes. Any suggestions on a boot to power this ski?

I'm 5'10", 180, experienced nordic and downhill skier...

Answer from Zak M
Hey John, I think for that setup a boot from our general touring selection should do just fine. Since boots are all about fit, I would fill out our online boot fitter and we can help get you squared away.

Question from Jacob
How do you think the HyperVector and the Objective compare? I am considering both of these skis with the goal that I can use them to cruise along nicely on flats and rolling terrain, while still getting pretty solid performance on the downhills in the Northeast. Ideally, I could bring my backcountry skis into the resort or even into Tuckerman's ravine. I also am looking at pairing these skis with the Salomon Shift 13 binding, which I know are on the heavier side, but also seem to provide the performance and safety I am looking for on the downhill.
Answer from Ian C
Hi Jacob, for this range of applications you will need a versatile ski that can perform in varied conditions! For rolling terrain and flats, Voile's scaled BC skis will be helpful, though you may sacrifice some skiability in the resort. Likewise, for "mountaineering" on Tuckerman's the lightweight Objective will be advantageous whereas for general backcountry conditions including firm snow, the Hypervectors may be more dependable. Overall I would lean towards the HVs for you.

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 and we will get you sorted!

Question from Fedor F
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?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Fedor. We will be getting these in this season. Because of the length, we aren't able to ship these directly to Russia (though we are able to ship smaller items directly). For the items we can ship, we typically use the postal service. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Calvin E (used product a few times)
I'm impressed with this ski - the scales work well on the up, and it turns well on the down, even carves. Ski likes late-season hardpack. Definitely improved since the old "baby blue" version - a bit softer, with longer tails. I was actually able to climb all the way to top of Alta's Supreme lift, without using skins even once!

Question from Greg T
Looks like you are sitting in the backyard playground dropping the green mountain corn crud! Was looking for a good variable snow ski with scales that would allow me to safely ride anything from the back bowls to the notch chutes as well as be able to hit tucks, ammo, gulf. Is this my well rounded buddy?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for your question, Greg. For what you've described, the Hyper Vector BC sounds like the ski for you! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Terry (used product a few times)
I have 5 days of spring skiing on the Ultra Vector BCs - two days of touring and three days downhill skiing. Teamed with Dynsfit TLT8 boots and G3 ZED 9 bindings, they have been great in both applications. The fishscale bases climb really well; as well as my Fischer 88 XC skis. They make spring touring fun by avoiding the drag from having to skin everywhere. At the resort, they are fun in the spring snow. They carve right through mash potato snow. They’re not as happy on icy morning slopes, but they’re still solid and predictable.

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.

Question from jeff
Hi - I'm about 5'10".., ~162lbs naked, so potentially 170-175 or a little more with boots, clothes, and a day pack.
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?
Answer from Tristan M
Hi Jeff,

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

Question from Jack
I am an aggressive 6' skier whose weight fluctuates between 145 to 155 lbs. I have never used a scaled downhill ski, so I am wondering if my weight would be enough to flatten the skis' camber so I can get sufficient grip when ascending. I am used to skiing longer skis, but was considering the 171 cm model. This would be a purely backcountry / sidecountry ski for me. Any input or advice would be much appreciated.
Answer from Julieana
Hi Jack, yes you'll be able to flatten the skis for ascending no problem! If you end up on steeper ascents you can also use skins with these skis. If you're looking for a nimble, lightweight ski that's great for traveling mellower terrain I think the 171cm length will be just fine for you.

Question from Mark P
I am 6’ and 170lbs. What length would you recommend I purchase for Voile Hyper Vector BC?
Thank you for your help.
Answer from Cole P
Hey Mark, you could go with the 171cm or the 177cm, just depending on what you're after in the ski. If you want something more stable with better flotation, go with the longer length. If you want something a bit more "nimble" and better for tighter spaces, go for the shorter length. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Gary
This may have been answered with Bob's question above. Ski length suggestions?
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.
Answer from Patrick C

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!

Question from Ellery Wulczyn
What length ski do you recommend for a type 2 skier (5' 11'', 156 lbs)? I'm trying to decide between 17cm1 and 177cm. Thanks!
Answer from Will M
Hey Ellery!

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!
Answer from Andy M
Ellery, if I were you, I would go for the 171. I am 6', 180, and I have the 177, and it skis fine -- wouldn't want it any longer.
Answer this question:

Question from Bob
I'm 5'8", 140 lbs. What size do you recommend? Would 164 be too short? Thanks.
Answer from Patrick C

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!

Question from JT22
Similar question to Dan's. What length in this ski for 200 lb guy, 6’3”, who will use this for skiing tight trails and trees across rolling wooded terrain of fairly mild slope? Expect variable conditions. Most my skis are in the ~183 range, including Voile Hyper V6. Could I get away with 177 cm length -- or should I stick with the 184 length for this setup? Thanks!
Answer from TSB
Hey JT XXII, the Hyper Vector gains a little bit of running length/effective edge over a V6 of the same size, so bumping down to the 177cm wouldn't be a huge disadvantage in terms of overall feel. By going a little shorter, you also gain the ability to maneuver more quickly in tight trees, both in terms of going down and skinning up (shorter skis are easier to kick-turn). I'm about your same size and have found the 177cm to be plenty of ski (my review is below). I actually think it's comparable to the old baby-blue Vector ski in a 180cm due to a little more tip rocker and more torsional rigidity.
