Thank you, Dimitrije Milovich. As the original founder of Winterstick, you gave the world of backcountry snowboarding an idea that has stood the test of time: “The Swallowtail.”
A swallowtail snowboard is an incredible way to carve deep, deep powder. The basic idea of it all consists of a highly-navigable nose, coupled with a fork-shaped tail that drops into the snow and spits it out the back.
In 1999, Voilé gave the world our “195 Swallowtail,” a split version of the sacred design. Unlike Dimitrije’s boards, Voilé’s contribution instantly gave powderhounds access to acres and acres of untracked snow. After several years of hibernation, Voilé Manufacturing has proudly resurrected a new swallowtail splitboard that we now call the Voilé V-Tail
A medium-flexing board, The V-Tail is now offered in a range of shorter lengths. Its long camber length makes for very-advantageous skinning, while its new rockered nose makes the original swallowtail concept even-more efficient.
The V-Tail’s cap construction, Aspen core and carbon-fiber construction lend a hand in reducing the board’s overall weight. (You knew that was coming, right?) And unlike many swallowtail boards, a 2mm steel edge completely follows the interior of the v-tail shape.
Yep, Voilé. Simple. Solid. Backcountry. And “retro.”
