Manufacturer's Description

Brawny, yet agile. Obese, yet svelte. Floatable, yet carvable. A list of ridiculous ironies and superlatives could go on and on, but one thing is for certain: The Voilé V8 is the ultimate fun hog.

We’re not just blowing our own horn here. That’s what the testers from Backcountry, Powder and Freeskier Magazines all said, too.

The V8’s ultra-wide shovel, tapered tail and perfect amount of sidecut all add up to an incredibly stable ride in deep powder, without sacrificing the maneuverability needed for skiing in tight places. And, of course, our signature Voilé Hybrid Rocker shines in the mix, as well.

Sounds great, but you may be thinking that a ski this burly must also weigh in like an Abrams Tank. Not so, think again. The V8’s lightweight Aspen core and carbon-fiber construction keep its weight to a minimum. (The actual amount even surprises us.)

Deep in the backcountry or deep in powder at the resort, the V8 gives skiers an amazing platform to conquer almost any terrain and condition. And in keeping with our motto to keep things simple and not mess with a good thing, we see no reason to change anything on the V8 for 2015-16. Period.
