Becoming the industry leader in the backcountry splitboard category didn’t happen by accident. Or with narrow-minded thinking. Or by not taking inspiration from anywhere.
So when the malcontents at Voilé pondered a little augmentation for their kick-ass Revelator, somehow a flashback to wool plaid shirts, three-pin leather boots, and goofy nylon gaiters came to mind. And the Voilé Revelator BC was born.
Thanks to its “Voile Traction-Pattern Base,” the Revelator BC lets backcountry snowboarders ride up and down moderate, rolling terrain without the bother of applying climbing skins. This feature can be a real boon on tours with long approaches or occasional pitches of steep – but very short – climbing. All that said, the “fish-scaled” base is not a substitute for carrying climbing skins, so please don’t leave home without them.
The versatility of the Revelator BC does not, however, compromise any of the great build features of the “normal” Revelator. And as always, Voilé predictably wraps up their wacked-out innovation in a very-lightweight package.
