Voile W SuperCharger Touring Ski
Voile flipped the script when they made the SuperCharger for women first, and then created a men's model due to demand. Their female customers were asking for a ski that was more playful and quicker turning while still being fully capable in the big mountain terrain that they loved. The Women's Supercharger has a relatively flat tail to push the turn quickly through the rounded out flex. A rockered tip makes it float in the pow and also takes on variability with less deflection. This makes the super charger fun and responsive in all conditions.
The Supercharger uses a lightweight Aspen core reinforced with bi and tri-axial carbon fiber to create an uphill machine. The Women's supercharger is a versatile ski great for a one ski quiver. The 154 length is greatly appreciated by the more petite rippers out there.
Made in the USA.
This ski does it all. Feels stable on the hardpack, floats in the powder, and powers through the chop. Agree with the other review on this site, light enough to tour well, but no sacrifice in downhill performance. Mounted the Atomic Backland Touring binding and couldn't be happier with the setup. Thanks to Cripple Creek for the help getting me set up with a great package.
Great for bigger lines or inbounds skiing for those of us who happen to not be giant mountain men. Light enough to tour well without sacrificing any of the downhill performance. Nimble through the trees, floats when it needs too, cruises stably at speed, and damp enough to deal with the chop with ease. Is there anything that it can't do well enough? Almost was going to stop skiing and then Cripple Creek and this ski setup got me back to enjoying it!
