Big Mountain & Powder
Directional / Carving
Though the Charger name has been a part of the Voile ski-line since 2011, the new Voile HyperCharger has evolved into something quite different from what was released years ago.
This latest iteration brings significantly reduced weight when compared to the Voile SuperCharger. This is accomplished by starting at the core. We’ve switched from poplar to paulownia for the HyperCharger. The strength-to-weight ratio of paulownia is renowned, but it is a bit softer than poplar, so we’ve doubled the amount of carbon fiber in the layup to compensate for this while still maintaining the weight savings.
The HyperCharger is classed as a big-mountain ski. It’s a directional “carving” ski with an edge-to-edge feel, capable of big lines as well as daily driving. It features minimal taper and a wider hard-working tail for control in debris and harder conditions. The generous width, early-rise tip and wide shovel provide excellent float in powder. A long running length with less sidecut provides for strong edging ability when driving fast and steep.
There is a fine line between weight savings and performance. The Voile HyperCharger rides that line as nicely as it dices narrow couloirs, rips wide-open aprons and dances through powder-filled tree lines: really, really well.

Shape / Profile
Tip: Early-rise tip and wide shovel provide excellent float in powder.
Tail: Minimal taper, with a wide and flat hard-working tail for control in debris and harder conditions.
Waist: Long running length. Engineered for strong edging ability when fast and steep. Cambered underfoot for stability.
Paulownia / Double Carbon
Ultralight "Hyper Series" construction shaves nearly a pound per pair for easier ascents, with an additional layer of carbon for added stiffness.
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 Mounting Patch
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.
