ATTENTION: mounting quiver killers on your Voile Spartan Ascent Splitboard will void the Voile factory warranty.


If the purpose of the Voile Spartan is to “get your butt in the backcountry”, then the purpose of the Spartan Ascent is to keep your butt in the backcountry. There wouldn’t be such a thing as $100 lift tickets if this were an easy task, and even a few ounces of weight reduction in your equipment can make a huge difference in your level of enjoyment when you're making that approach on foot.

The Spartan Ascent shaves hundreds of grams underfoot when compared to the standard Spartan. While the Spartan Ascent retains its original shape and profile, we’ve applied the construction method of the Voile Revelator: paulownia wood core, custom carbon-fiberglass weave and a super-durable nylon top sheet.

You get the playful, switch-capable, high floating characteristics of the Spartan, but with a significant amount of weight trimmed off. Your legs will just be fresher and more willing for another run. So, go ahead—take another lap, you’ve earned it.

Product Reviews

Backcountry Ski Patroller Approved
Hugh Gallagher
This is my second season patrolling the Mt. Rainier N.P. backcountry with a Spartan Ascent 158, Voile Hyper Glide skins and Spark R&D’s Arc Pro bindings and I couldn’t be happier with this light and versatile set up. The board sticks surprisingly well when skinning in steep terrain without crampons and has exceeded expectations in downhill mode in variety of terrible conditions that I would normally be avoid on a recreational tour. If I had to keep only one board this would be it.

Aptly named: Ascent
Verified Buyer
The Voile Ascent Board is aptly named indeed - it makes skinning uphill as swift as cross-country skiing. At least it made me think of cross-country skiing, since going uphill suddenly felt so effortless with my new "ascent" board. I have the 158. Transition is really easy and works flawlessly (if you've had a splitboard for a while, things have improved significantly). I got my first splitboard over 20 years ago, a Voile Mojo and about the second round of those ever made. Going down, the board is quick edge-to-edge and you can ride switch easily in tight trees, as the description already says. In open terrain and especially in crappy snow it is noticeable that the board is rather soft, so if you normally ride a stiff and fast board (like me) you have to be careful not to use too much force. Its a good board for quick stints up the hill and rides easily.

Great splitboard
Max S.
This is my first season riding Spartan Ascent, and it has been great so far. Paired with Speed Rail binding and Nylon skins makes it a solid set up. It is light enough and floats like a champ in Wasatch powder.

Game Changer
Jeremy McKnight
Probably the best purchase I ever made when it comes to snowboarding! My setup is now 3.2lbs lighter which makes a HUGE difference when it comes to skinning and bootpacking! They’re not joking when they say it keeps you out there! It’s helped me to go for longer tours and bigger objectives! My old board (unfortunately not a Voile) is a 159 and was way stiff and heavy, and made riding unenjoyable, especially when in tight trees or on top of steep lines. It never seemed to want to float, whereas my 5cm shorter Spartan Ascent floats like an absolute dream. Basically, that board never inspired the confidence to ride some of the bigger lines we have here in the Wasatch, but luckily my Spartan Ascent changed all that! It’s playful enough to send off of natural hits or bust a nice butter 3 in the powder, but also rides smooth and stable enough to bomb some big mountain lines! I’m also NOT the slowest on the ski track anymore haha! Just the other day, I skinned/hiked to the peak of Mount Superior and rode down the South Face, and from the initial chute I dropped into, to the small cliff band I jumped off, and then lastly the wide open apron to surf, spray, and butter my way down to the canyon rode, this board handled everything I threw at it! Couldn’t be more happy that I bought it last April! It’s taken me from really questioning how I feel about splitboarding, to some of the best and most fun runs of my life, and mind you that’s only having ridden it late last season and the amazing December we’ve had to far! Cheers to many more tours and seasons with this Spartan Ascent! To anyone on the fence, 10/10 would recommend and highly advise, especially if you’re looking to go out for some long days and big missions! Seriously can’t say enough great things about this board!

Great daily driver

This board is my daily driver guiding skier and snowboarders in the Tetons and Alaksa. Its playful and handles varied snow conditions well. Its not the board for high speed (revelator or vtail for that) but its weigh makes squeaking out another lap no big deal.
