Description


How do you improve upon a 5 year-old, award-hogging backcountry ski design?

You make it lighter.

Introducing the Voile Hyper V8. The beloved shape and camber profile remain unchanged, but the rest of the ski has been overhauled. Starting with the core, we switched to paulownia wood from aspen. We’ve doubled the amount of carbon fiber and re-enforced the binding mounts to account for the lighter core. Finally, it’s all wrapped up in a sharp new graphic made from the most durable and snow/ice-phobic topsheet material we use.

You still get the irony-filled performance of the original Voile V8: Brawny, yet agile—fat, but featherweight. It has the width to float the deepest powder—yet remains quick edge-to-edge for all those non-powder days. It maintains a high fun-factor even in less than perfect conditions. It’s all of those things—just much lighter.

The Hyper V8 is a culmination of little changes to create a brand new award-winning high-performance ski. Same… but different… and still awesome.

Super fun ski
justin

These ski is super fun. They are light, tour like a breeze and then float playfully all the way down. I've skied them a wide variety of conditions from deep powder to breakable crust and generally felt quite confident. On resort they can feel a bit light in chunky snow and you need to stomp on them, but the aggression pays off. Highly recommend this ski.

Outstanding quality, all-day smiles

I have skiied these since last January in bottomless powder, heavy powder, corn, variable snow, breakable crust, and at the resort a few times. As expected these sticks in powder are a skier's nirvana. I added them as my second AT ski (other is a 78 underfoot spring/rando ski) expecting to round out my quiver with a 90s underfoot stiffer ski for variable conditions. At this point I have taken the HyperV8s through enough crud and crusty snow to be pleasantly surprised with how they ski in less than great conditions so I won't be getting a third set for now. Because of their low weight I can swing them around when needed and they push through crap well enough for me. The uphill is a breeze, sure there is a bit more drag with the larger surface area, but their weight to surface ratio is mind blowing. Lastly, I have been presently surprised by the durability so far. I have bumped them into enough crap and been a bit worried about delaming with how lightweight they are built, but after a few dozen days I'm no longer worried about their durability.

I demoed these skis this week and absolutely love them. They are light on the uphill and surfed on the downhill. I felt they handle any crust I ran into with ease, inspiring confidence to charge the slope. I would definitely recommend.

Surfy, fun, and forgiving

I'm a fairly new skier and had never tried big wide skis in the backcountry, but these skis weigh as much as my 96mm underfoot daily drivers so I had to check them out. They are so surfy, fun, and forgiving. They are super fun on fast open slopes and a blast in aspens. First time I tried them, they had me giggling all day long! (They are light enough to go all day!!)

I also own the regular V8 and this new lighter version blows me away. So fun in so many different conditions. Been skiing it for 2 years and it rocked in deep Canadian powder, but I am also using it for ski area laps here in Colorado since it is so fun to ski. Spring corn is no match for this ski and skied really steep frozen lines with confidence. I didn't feel the need for a narrower ski, so I just use this to tour everywhere. Easy to turn and has amazing edge hold for a wide light ski. The rocker Voile uses is genius! Floats insanely well, but some how keeps an edge on harder variable snow. I also tried the DPS 112 Tour1 and the Voile is just as light and easier to ski. The durability is great too with over 2 years of use and abuse and it still looks new. Skins go on and off really easy and have not damaged the tip or tail at all.

The most fun

I wrote off wider skis in the backcountry for a long time, assuming that it wasn't worth the weight penalty. I convinced a friend to let me ski her Hyperv8s for one run, then went home and bought a pair. I have the 176s (I'm 5"5'). These skis are nimble and playful, and they easily pop out of one turn and into the next. I went back and forth between the Hyper and regular V8s, but the Hypers handle chunder and crud just fine - I can't imagine needing anything more. Best of all, they are so light that I always have energy for another run!

Hyper V8 193 - Love 'em
John Sievert
12/20/2019
If you want to ski soft snow, big lines, and tour far to go get the goods, these are the ski for you. I'm on the big 193s, and it's amazing how light these planks are for their size. They feel stable in big wide open turns above treeline, and are nimble and responsive when picking a tight line through the alders to get back to the trailhead. Big dudes; rejoice! I'm 6'4", 260# without gear and these things punch way above their weight class. They're a dream to ski, and never feel underpowered like other lightweight touring skis I've tried.

I was hesitant that the weight savings on these compared to my old V8's would mean reduced performance in icy and crusty conditions. These things are just as stiff and strong in mixed conditions yet are easier to throw around. Moral of the story: V8's are awesome BC skis and the Hyper V8 really does shed some weight without the slightest sacrifice of performance. I don't know how Voile did it, but I'm truly impressed.

Super Floater
Calvin Earl

Very floaty, surfy feeling - super fun in powder. Great ski for BC or resort. Similar shape and rocker to the very popular Rosi Super 7, but much, much lighter! Amazing how light the Hyper V8 is for its size. The only down side to this ski, is it won't always fit in the skin track, too wide for that.

I was blown away at how well a huge hyper light ski could ski so well on the way down. I've always been skeptical of super light skis until now with these. The long size of 193cm is very nice for the big open faces I ski in Alaska but they turn right around the tight trees too. For the super deep powder days this is the new ski I grab and they put a big smile on my face.
