Description


Becoming the industry leader in the backcountry splitboard category didn’t happen by accident. Or with narrow-minded thinking. Or by not taking inspiration from anywhere.

So when the malcontents at Voilé pondered a little augmentation for their kick-ass Revelator, somehow a flashback to wool plaid shirts, three-pin leather boots, and goofy nylon gaiters came to mind. And the Voilé Revelator BC was born.

Thanks to its “Voile Traction-Pattern Base,” the Revelator BC lets backcountry snowboarders ride up and down moderate, rolling terrain without the bother of applying climbing skins. This feature can be a real boon on tours with long approaches or occasional pitches of steep – but very short – climbing. All that said, the “fish-scaled” base is not a substitute for carrying climbing skins, so please don’t leave home without them.

The versatility of the Revelator BC does not, however, compromise any of the great build features of the “normal” Revelator. And as always, Voilé predictably wraps up their wacked-out innovation in a very-lightweight package.

East Coast Secret Weapon
VTVolk

First, kudos to Voile for taking a chance in bringing such a niche product to market. Snowboarding is such a groupthink sport that something like the Rev BC doesn't even compute for most of their potential customers. But those who think freely, don't care about bro-ing down in the parking lot at the main trailheads, and instead seek the solitude of reclusive, hard-to-get-to stashes, know that the Rev BC is a secret weapon and a ticket to untracked turns long after everywhere else is blown out. I have two other splits and don't take the Rev BC out every time. If it's just straight up a skintrack and straight back down, this board does great, but doesn't necessarily shine brighter than it's quiver mates. It is very light, and it's shape and layup make it strong and stable, capable of charging hard and handling all kinds of snow. Skins are necessary for most typical skin tracks, and they go on and stay on just fine. The scales make essentially no difference there. Where the Rev BC shines is on long flat or rolling approaches and exits to oft-neglected zones. There, the difference in speed is incredible--probably 50% faster than slogging with skins. Getting to several of my favorite local spots are greatly aided by zooming at XC skier pace rather than typical splitboard pace. Once it's time to really climb, I've experimented with keeping the skins off and can comfortably make it up just about anything by setting a lower angled track. Lapping little 500' vert slopes without ever putting on skins is incredibly quick and satisfying, especially with a hard boot setup. Bindings go on a carabiner on my waistbelt and I don't even take off my pack at transitions. Descending, I don't feel the scales at all in powder, a little bit in corn, and I hear the on hard frozen crust. The only reason I'm giving the Rev BC 4 instead of 5 stars is that the scales make riding switch pretty much impossible. I rarely ride switch in tight trees anyway, but sometimes a switch turn or two is really helpful to get out of an extra tight spot. This is a tradeoff I'm happy to accept for the joy of miles of frictionless touring, but should be noted.

This splitboard is f—-ing badass. Want to egress out of a canyon after skiing a steep face up high, the scales are priceless. Keep up with your skier friends and use less stabilizer muscle energy. And spread stoke! Like the Revalator does for me! Yeah, the scales will get strange looks. As will you when you aren’t struggling to get up some fifty foot incline in GTNP sans skins. Voile rules!

Hands down the most efficient way to travel through the mountains if you’re a snowboarder either trying to save weight or go vast distances....

Revelator BC Splitboard - Light and Smooth
Michael Harren

Light and skin track friendly! I found it overall tracked and gripped (with skins) all types of snow on the uphill. The fish scale base is great for rolling, low-incline terrain, however it does hamper glide and going backwards. In powder it's a dream but still holds an edge quite well on the hard pack. At 6lb, 11oz (165cm) this is considerably light. It is very close to a One-Quiver BC Board!
