Description


Attention details maniacs, over-discriminators and general malcontents: Your ski has just arrived.

To remain a contender in the backcountry ski category, we at Voilé have learned two valuable lessons. (1) Never rest on your laurels. (2) Never think that minuscule tweaks in any ski’s design will not alter its performance.

Introducing the Voilé SuperCharger.

Now, before you think it’s an even-stiffer and more-aggressive version of our original Charger, think again, because the SuperCharger is absolutely none of those things. In fact, it’s a ski probably more akin to our venerable V8. Except that it’s not quite as fat. And has a slimmer waist. As well as a wider, hard-working tail. Oh, and a more-subdued version of our signature “Voilé Hybrid Rocker.”

You can expect it to stick and hold a well-carved turn, yet weave through tight trees and rocks with ease. It’s definitely not a ski for riding switch, but it may be our best ski ever for the bumps. (Did we just say that?) And, of course, it wouldn’t bear our quirky name if it couldn’t hold it’s own in powder.

So, for skiers on either coast, and all points in-between, this might be the ideal ski. For skiers who enjoy making a variety of turn shapes and sizes in an even-larger variety of terrain and snow conditions, so much the better. And for skiers who just want to work a bit less while tearing up the hill, ditto that, too.

The all-new SuperCharger. Far from just a blend, it’s true varietal. And one grown right here in Utah, USA.

Product Reviews

Great quiver ski.
Loshi

These provide great snappy fun for powder day turns on steep and deep conditions, deep snow in tight trees, etc. Love the float and stability they provide when I'm telemarking heavy deep snow, light fluff, or tracked up mashed potatoes. When skiing inbounds on packed powder or icy conditions I prefer telemarking on skis with a narrower waist and more edge control though.

An uphill ski for people who like skiing downhill
Dirk Badenhorst
01/31/2020
If this ski was a person, it would be the humble and flannel wearing trophy boyfriend named Cedar of your wildest big mountain dreams. This is the guy that can hang on an impromptu backcountry epic with your sufferfest loving squad (who frequent the pain cave as much as the white room), and then take it easy on the cruisers with Mom & Dad before hot cocoa and warm cookies in the lodge at noon. This not so slim waisted babe, is light weight, balanced, evenly tempered, and likes to charge up slopes as much as he likes to mob down them. His natural habitat is in the soft stuff, whether that be flakey surface hoar, creamy warm south facers, dust on crust or blower gnar in LLC (can I get a yew!?). He acts predictably in crud, heart breakable crust, hard pack, moguls and even keeps his cool with mentions of grandkids from Mom & Dad after only two weeks of casual dating. If you’re thinking he’s the all round hucking package... then you’re probably headed down the right skin track! If you’re looking for a ski that strikes a great balance between uphill functionality (weight) with downhill performance (fun), the Superchargers, may be for you. This is the ski I want under my feet when I’m headed out on a self powered adventure, with type 2 fun potential, and variable ski conditions. #skifasttakechances #prayforsnow

Good all around ski for the Wasatch
Charlie Hussey
01/30/2020
I am a long time BC skier in the Wasatch and ski in Big Cottonwood or Little Cottonwood Canyons. I am 5'11", 165lbs, I chose the 178cm length paired with Dynafit Speed bindings. This ski seems to be able to ski it all, powder (of course), heavy pow, corn, and some firm snow. I find it light for the uphill climb and the upturned tip helps in deep snow trail breaking. It does not float as high as my Voile V8 skis but it give enough to have fun in all but the deepest powder. This is my 2nd season on the ski and so far still going strong. I ski about 40 days per season. Also I do love the color of the skis. Keep up the good work Voile!

Demo'd out of Voile HQ and had a blast.
Pat Brooker

I'm not a great skier. Point me down a blue run and I'll meet you at the bottom but looking over the edge of a double-black is a little daunting for me. I'm 5'8" 160lbs and I rented the 171 SuperCharger skis from the Voile HQ and took them up to Snowbird over this particularly snowy weekend. I'm impressed. I want 'em. I don't know if I can go another year without 'em. Before the deep snow got chopped up by all the Jerrys (incl. me) these skis were easy to float. After a few laps once the moguls got laid down for the day they held a confident edge and were easy to turn, even when I overshot the moguls by a few yards. The Superchargers are versatile and fun as hell. I'm considering selling my G3 Roamrs and picking up a pair for an upcoming year in New Zealand.

This has quickly become my go-to ski for personal use and ski guiding. Very versatile. Light and easy to manage on the ski-track and kick-turns. They are 'softer' than some of the more alpine skis I was using- but that makes them easy in powder and crusts and really manageable slarving on tight 'luge' trails out of the canyons. I ski them with a stiffer boot at the area (and you can overpower that combo on piste, so some finesse required) and then use a softer touring boot in the backcountry. I would love to see a version of this ski also made with the carbon from the HyperCharger layered over top. Would be a great solution for those who spend a fair amount of time on piste and off piste, like ski patrollers. Really pleased with them, and I absolutely love they are locally made in the USA. Nice visuals with the sunburst color too!

Great all around platform
Chris Whalen

I have been on the Superchargers for about a year now. Probably 70% resort skiing and 30% what we call backcountry here in New England. I was looking for a ski that could go anywhere in most any conditions, and that is exactly what these are. I taught for many years, so I can be hard on gear. Now that I am not teaching I am still looking for the same versatility. Now for the technical part. I am 6'1" and 230 lbs. and 50 years old. I still like to ski fast and carve heavily but jump into the trees at the same time. The Supercharger is a very good carving ski under most conditions. Great on groomed or torn snow for sure, even junk and bumps don't seem to phase the ski. Really good carving ski at up to moderate speeds. Obviously a great ski in power and trees for sure. The one challenge is the tortional stability. At high speeds either carving or in very solid conditions, the ski will twist tortionally under a lot of stress. Really not uncommon in tele skis as opposed to alpine, especially the wider the ski. The Supercharger recovers really well and quickly when you dial it back just a little which works really well for me. And it seems to twist more at the tip during turn initiation than at any other point or part of ski in the turn. I am using an NTN boot and M Equipment binding setup so I have had the chance to really push the edge control in a number of ways. Overall, I really enjoy this ski. It has become my main platform and my daily ski. Once you get a handle on the carve arc and the overall flex, you can really take this ski anywhere.

If you miss the original Charger, you'll LOVE the SuperCharger
Jared Hargrave

The Voile Charger were my favorite skis of all time. So I was dismayed when they stopped making them. I had nothing to be sad about because the SuperCharger are even better. You may think the name implies that the SuperChargers are bigger, stiffer, and more beastly than the Chargers of old… but it’s actually the opposite. The SuperChargers are easier to ski, weigh less, and are narrower at the waist. Most importantly, they are much more fun. Voile Chargers were my daily driver in the backcountry in years past, so skiing the SuperCharger felt like I came home. They do feel like Chargers, but are more responsive and maybe more stiff. Damn they are fun. I can mow through variable snow, make tight turns through the trees on one pitch, then turn around and crush open zones at speed. I even took them in the moguls at the resort and had a blast. These babies are capable on just about everything. I said above that Voile Chargers are my favorite ski ever… but the SuperChargers are even better.

One and Done
Erik Aune

Supercahrgers were the natural progression coming from Asylums, Drifters and well worn Vector BCs. Fast edge to edge, good hold on firm conditions, so fun in moderate to deep. They are light and pretty stiff in the right places. Resort and backcountry they are my go-to ... I really like them for all conditions.

Float em in the deep stuff, blast em through the chunky stuff, even tip them on edge and arc em on the corduroy stuff! Voile hit on the magic combo with these skis. While this ski will keep you stoked in any conditions, pair with the Objectives for quite possibly the ultimate duo.

Excellent touring skis
Pete Rensen
12/30/2019
I'm on my second pair of these. All I can say is they are magic when it comes to touring. They are light and ski all conditions extremely well. I have one pair mounted with kingpins and the other pair with Ion LTs . I would give them 5 stars however they aren't as durable as I had hoped. After 1 season of about 60 days with 20 of them being at Red Mountain Resort in Rossland, I found they really noodled out. I like them so much that I bought another pair that I only tour with. Bottom line amazing ski for all conditions, except agressive resort skiing.

Does it all...really, really well
Alaina Finley
12/26/2019
I pretty much solely ski in the BC, and had been on the search for a ski that could charge in any condition (since most days touring aren't pow days) but wasn't going to weigh me down on the skin-track on longer days out. After trying several other "highly-recommended" touring skis, I finally decided to give the Superchargers a go, and I absolutely love them. They ski every condition really well, and they feel incredibly solid without compromising on weight for the uphill. Would absolutely recommend these!

Daily Driver
Collin Rose

I picked them up at the end of last year and I absolutely love them. Very light and playful in all conditions I’ve used them in. They definitely offer a lot of control on the steeps and hard packed terrain and I’ve found the waist width is perfect for the softer stuff as well. I got them with the intention of doing a lot of backcountry, but they are such a versatile ski that I’ve made them my daily driver. Nothing bad to say about them. This is my first pair of Voile skis and all I have to say is you’ve created a quality product and I’ll definitely be a returning customer. Thank you again.

The story is similar every time: The Supercharger is the one-ski-quiver. If you ski a little bit of everything, or overwhelmed in the amount of options available, look no further. I also use these sticks as my all around ski-mo tool in the 178 flavor.

This is the perfect ski for any conditions. When in doubt this is the ski to grab for any day of skiing. It works very well on hardpack or deep powder. It is light for the way up yet skis like a real deal ski. I do wish it came in a 190cm option to meet the demands of Alaskan skiers and anybody who is a taller and/or more advanced skier.

Simply put, this is the best all-around ski I have ever used. Whether it is ice, crud, corduroy, or pow, the SuperCharger will lead you through like you are driving a Ferrari. I ski primarily in Vermont, where the conditions are highly variable; the SuperCharger handles whatever Mother Nature throws at you. If you are one-ski type of skier, make this your ski. You will not be disappointed, I promise. I am 6'1", 180 lbs and I ski this in a 178cm.

If I could only have one....
Weston D
09/28/2019
Verified Buyer
When I travel and can only bring one ski, if I couldn't have a quiver and could only have one pair of skis.....this is the one. 108 @185 is narrow enough for resort ripping (and they rip on the roy') yet wide enough to handle deep snow. The early rise in the nose is perfect, have had them in 24" of new and been stoked yet the long running edge means they are great in steep/committing terrain. Cannot say enough good things about these skis and have had them in every condition known to man and they have excelled in them all. The HyperCharger is a bit more specialized for touring and for lighter weight skiers. For heavier skiers looking for more all around performance, this is the one.
