From the wild ranges of North America to the mythic Japanese islands — snow surfers the world over have a new reason to celebrate. Introducing the Voile Hyper V-Tail, a powder surfing machine built for the deepest days. Its wide rockered nose and V shaped tail mean serious business, coacting to keep you afloat in otherwise chokable powder. It has a medium flex and long running length, with enough camber underfoot to provide purchase on steeper slopes and firm snow. These all combine to make surprisingly easy work of long uphill treks in search of the best lines.
When massive storm cycles unload their goods, the Hyper V-Tail’s wake is an arcing wave of heavenly powder. Your most sedate friends would become aroused at the display, but alas: there are no friends on powder days. An ultra-lightweight paulownia core and Voile carbon weave construction mean that you abandoned them on the approach miles ago. But hey, at least you broke trail for them, right?
Paulownia / Double Carbon
Full-Perimeter Steel Edge
Two lengths of 2mm steel with inset teeth wrap the full perimeter of the ski. Each section meets at the outermost points of the tip and tail, and is painstakingly hand-bent to ensure a precise layup.
Exceptionally durable polyamide, with an irregular texture that slows the accumulation of snow and allows easy removal of snow and ice build-up when the approach is long and/or conditions are freezing.
Double Reinforced Binding Mounts
Heel and toe mounting areas are double-reinforced to prevent binding pull out.
Voile Carbon-Weave x2
Two layers of our proprietary carbon fiberglass regulate the ski's flex without an impact on bonding strength.
Laminated Paulownia Wood Core
The lightest wood core offered in our line, with an impressive strength to weight ratio. Paulownia provides the ideal foundation for building a lightweight touring ski.
Sintered Black Base
This ski passes on the base graphics for the sake of an ultra-high molecular density base; making for faster downhill performance and greater wear/impact resistance.
Many claim that a black base increases a ski's maximum speed. Something about "snow melting faster," which apparently has the effect of "increasing lubrication." Sounds pretty nice, right? Of course, we don't really know if it's true... Regardless, you can rest assured that your p-tex repairs will be seamless after your day spent breaking the sound barrier.
The coolest looking splitboard ever made! And it rides like a dream! 10/10

More than just a pow shape
I've owned four Voile boards over the last decade, three of which were swallowtails. Swallowtails are the only shape I've ridden for the past many years, no need for anything else and nothing else provides the same feel. Of course YMMV
Currently on a V-Tail BC 170 as my daily driver and a vintage 'One Ninety Five' for snorkel days or just wanting to fly fast.
When considering weight + performance + durability + price, there is no better value in a split swallowtail.
Weight - Good
Performance - Excellent
Durability - Bomber
Price - Stellar
Usability - stupid simple
Whats old is new...
Not to mention, Voile has been making swallys for a long time, not just following the current pow board revival. For that I'm eternally grateful to them that I've been able to get reasonably priced boards that work well and are built where I live.

The best pow board Ive ever ridden
The title says it all. This is the most fun powder board I've ever ridden. Shorter lengths for tree and 190 for big AK faces this board can do it all. The nose is practically unsinkable. Needless to say this isnt a board for hardpack but whos out there hoping for icy anyways?!
