The Voilé UltraVector BC adds a Voilé Traction Pattern Base to the reliably-efficient UltraVector and helps the adventurous backcountry skier get even further into the hinterland—especially when a long approach is required.
The UltraVector BC does not eliminate the need to carry skins into the backcountry, but once at the apex, skiers can expect downhill turning akin to the original UltraVector on steeper slopes and get a buzz (hear a hum) on lesser slopes.
Poplar / Single Carbon / BC
Full-Perimeter Steel Edge
Two lengths of 2mm steel with inset teeth wrap the full perimeter of the ski. Each section meets at the outermost points of the tip and tail, and is painstakingly hand-bent to ensure a precise layup.
Exceptionally durable polyamide, with an irregular texture that slows the accumulation of snow and allows easy removal of snow and ice build-up when the approach is long and/or conditions are freezing.
Reinforced Binding Mounts
Heel and toe mounting areas are reinforced to prevent binding pull out.
Triaxial fiberglass increases dimensional stability along three axis.
Our proprietary carbon fiberglass regulates the ski's flex without an impact on bonding strength.
Traction Pattern Base
For the backcountry skier who must continually make long approaches over rolling terrain, Sharpscale traction base is a godsend. It may sap a little of the ski's downhill speed, but negotiating far fewer skin transitions may be worth it.
Sintered Black Base
This ski passes on the base graphics for the sake of an ultra-high molecular density base; making for faster downhill performance and greater wear/impact resistance.
Many claim that a black base increases a ski's maximum speed. Something about "snow melting faster," which apparently has the effect of "increasing lubrication." Sounds pretty nice, right? Of course, we don't really know if it's true... Regardless, you can rest assured that your p-tex repairs will be seamless after your day spent breaking the sound barrier.
Finally a setup that is so much more than just a cross country ski with edges. This ski has a waist width that is actually substantial enough for deep snow adventures. The fish scales give rolling terrain a run for their money. Add some additional climbing skins and really get to the top of the backyard. Love these and would even consider a pair mounted with Magnum NNN BC bindings, another with tele bindings, and maybe even a pair with some alpine tech bindings. There’s something for every adventure with these skis.

Light, solid, and simple. This ski is exactly what I expected. I dig the white top sheet as I don't have to look at someone else's 'art', and enjoy simply leaving a beautiful track behind. I was hopeful about the fish scales, and they've turned out to work wonderfully. I can roam around easily on low angle terrain and traverse easily between terrain features to maximize my turns. I throw on skins to I head into steeper terrain and have no performance loss on the down.
I'm a happy Voile rider!
