Description


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 than what was released years ago.

What this latest iteration brings, first and foremost is: significantly reduced weight when compared to the Voile SuperCharger. This is accomplished by starting at the core. We’ve switched from Aspen to Paulownia for the HyperCharger. The strength to weight ratio of Paulownia is renowned, but it is a bit softer than Aspen. So, to compensate for that while still maintaining the weight savings—we’ve doubled the amount of Carbon Fiber in the lay-up, and re-enforced the binding mounts.

The HyperCharger width has minimal taper from the shovel to the tail, and a longer running length (when compared to the Voile V8) that give it strong edging capability to tackle steep terrain. While the generous width and Early-Rise Camber profile provide exceptional float—even in the deepest, lightest, snow.

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—you know—really, really, well.

Love this ski

I recently bought a pair of these and loved them so much I had to buy a second pair for my dad (main ski partner). They are super light and are very playful in boot top cream or deep blower powder. Hands down one of the best skis i've been on. Dad agrees!!!!

Voile HyperCharger is even better than the old Charger!

My first intro to the Voile Charger ten years ago as a Tele ski made me giggle with joy. Well, the improved HyperCharger still promotes plenty of "giggle" but it is a much better all around ski in many ways. I ski the HyperCharger as an AT ski and it is super solid and floaty in the deep powder due to ski width and early rise tip. The HyperCharger is quick and stable from turn to turn in the steep Sawtooth couloirs. I believe the real strength of the HyperCharger is their versitility in all conditions, not just powder. I am 5'9" and 160lbs, I ski 178's comfortably in wind crusted crud, hard scoured spring plaster and sweet corn. I skied the HyperCharger on a 6 day ski trip into one of the 10th Mountain Huts last spring. We experienced all types of snow conditions, from light powder to schatchy, solar refrozen pitches. With the longer running edge length, the HyperCharger holds when it needs too and floats though powder when your giggle meter is pegged!

Aptly named!

These skis are stiff enough to slash through crud and hold an edge on icy hardpack and wind crust alike but still float through pow like a god damn dream. I'm 175 lbs, 5' 9" on a good day and ski the 185's as 50/50 resort/backcountry skis with Fritsci Vipec's in Colorado. My setup comes out to about 9 lbs. They are big skis and short fast turns take effort but the edge hold and stability more than makes up for it. These will reward aggressive and precise skiers but make beginners feel a little out of control. Definitely a great "quiver of one" ski for the Rockies that will still put a grin on your face in the biggest powder dumps. Trail breaking is excellent with the wide shovel and 108mm waist. Side hilling on crust is not great because of the side cut but split boarders will still be complaining long before you. I would not choose these if you primarily ski tight trees with thin cover *cough*newengland*cough* but would be great for those areas as a more versatile powder ski for when conditions are ripe.

Long-Distance Touring Machines

Pow Pow or Pow-Fresh: highly desirable powder—loose and fluffy. Voile Hyperchargers: Lightweight, responsive, predictable, solid, floaty, variable snow-crushing long-distance touring skis. After logging countless days for many years on my Voile Chargers I decided to ditch some weight but, not any performance and upgrade to the Voile Hyperchargers. Simply put, these skis are a joy to tour on. Touring in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado, I've used these skis in all snow conditions from deep, blower powder to steep corn decents. The Hyperchargers are a versatile choice for someone looking for a powder-oriented ski that can tackle whatever the mighty Ullr may throw at you-be it a short distance from your rig, or deep in the backcountry.

Chargers

My dad uses the Voile chargers and I am known to snag them sometimes to shred a little bit, they're great for back country powder with excellent turning, very lightweight, and a neat design.

Super Light and Super Fun

I like my skis on the fat side, so the 106mm underfoot suits me well in using this as an everyday ski, regardless of the conditions. I got these because I loved my SuperChargers so much, I felt that a lightweight version of that ski was something I must have. I was right! Voile really hit it out of the park with this one. I've recommended them to several friends, who took my advise and purchased them and then fell in love with them :)

I have never owned any skis with carbon fiber before and was a bit skeptical at first, but have found hyperchargers to be great all around mid winter skis in all kinds of conditions. Super predictable and so light!
