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.

Product Reviews

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
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.

No Compromise Slayer

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.
