Manufacturer's Description

Leave it to Voilé to take a fat, stiff, aggressive ski and modify it to be a bit more utilitarian. The Voilé Charger BC is a scaled-base version of the legendary Charger, and no doubt, the widest ski of this nature on the market.

The extra width of the Voilé Traction Pattern likely makes the ski even more efficient for climbing moderate slopes, but this feature is, by no means, meant to fully replace the use of climbing skins.

When the ski is tipped on edge or floating on powder, skiers can expect a similar degree of downhill performance as its smoother sibling, the Charger.

However, when the Charger BC rides flat on a packed downward slope, a certain amount of glide and speed reduction is to be expected. This makes the ski better-suited for backcountry touring than in-bounds skiing at the resort.

And as usual, Voilé’s approach to the cap, core and construction still makes the Charger BC a very lightweight ski. (But hey, you already knew that, right?)
