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.

Product Reviews

Tried and true.
I've been riding the BC 162 since it arrived on the scene. This is my third. The board is light, but rides well in most conditions though the bullet hard challenges it (and me). Great in tight trees where I hide from the rest of you. The scales are what keep me on the board (well that and because the folks at Voile have the best customer service, ever). Of course the scales are designed for long flats, but they are also useful for scooching back up onto a ridge or through a short flat. And, for an older beat-up dude, when strapping in at the top of a run, she stays put, which abbreviates that painful experience. You'll see, it'll be you one day. Keep in mind, however, that you will be essentially waxing 4 small skis, making it a bit more time consuming, if you are the tight schedule type.

Brilliant
I've had this board for about 4 weeks now, and I've spent every weekend charging on it. I've been using the speed rail binding system, and the contour hybrid skins. This board rides well in all the conditions I've been able to access in the Wasatch: gnarly solar crust, wind slab, powder. It handles well in narrow tree runs and is dependable when it gets steep. It's a classic one-board quiver shape. I got some funny looks from some clients I was guiding at a Yurt last weekend when I starting trekking off with no skins on. The fish scales seemed like a gimmick at first (I'm a sucker for a gimmick) but have actually come in really clutch when I've had to traverse short, flat ridge hops or with hilly and mellow pitches back to the car that may go up, down, and up again many times. Don't expect it to replace skins, but when you're dreading the many transitions of the day, the scales can relieve some of the jokes your skiing partners will mutter as you motor past them to the next pitch. Also, topsheet rocks. One-board quiver, if you ask me.

Impressed
Like many, I was skeptical about the scales...but where I ride, I burn a lot of energy on approaches and struggle to hang with my ski buddies sometimes. I've only got one day on this board, but it was awesome...scales are unnoticeable when riding. But when we hit a trail for the slog out, I was able to quickly switch to ski mode and ski/kick/glide back out. Love it.

Great backcountry utility
The Revelator is a solid, no-nonsense board that will be competent anywhere. Nothing stands out, but nothing gets in the way either, so you can forget it's there and focus on the rest of your day. It's a bit wider than average, so it floats well in my regular size. It definitely skis a bit wide in the skin track, but it's not a nuisance. Real lightweight which is great on the uphill. My only minor complaint is that the capped construction makes it possible for the edges to overlap each other during assembly, which isn't an issue with a sidewall construction. The scales, though... the scales are amazing. They are unnoticeable on the downhill, and transform rolling terrain from a slog to an easy walk. Forget trying to decide whether that brief uphill is worth skinning or if you should bootpack it, or if you should transition or try to skin downhill after. Just ski up, ski down, and enjoy the view. They're amazing.

East Coast Secret Weapon
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.

Super Sweet
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
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!
