The Voile UltraVector BC is bred for demanding terrain and uncertain conditions, making it the ideal ski for longer backcountry forays. It can flick through trees as well as hold an edge on the diciest slopes, thanks in part to its softened flex and deeper sidecut. Its relatively narrow dimensions shave weight, and help it carve those turns in even tighter locations.
It's insanely light at 6lbs per pair, and (in keeping with the Vector's tradition) the UltraVector BC includes a Traction Pattern Base. Now the adventurous backcountry skier can trek further into the hinterland than ever before—especially when a long approach over rolling terrain is required.
*The Traction Pattern base does not eliminate the need to carry skins.
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.
Aspen Wood Core
The hardest wood core we employ, Aspen provides a smooth/damp ride on hardish conditions and more readily takes the abuse when things get out of hand.
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.
I ski the backcountry in Vermont and find this ski to be just what I need when doing low-angle touring. I find the 96mm underfoot (I have this in 177cm) perfect for an everyday BC ski. It also performs superbly when headed downhill, allowing you to maximize your reward after a long climb. If you are looking for a lightweight scaled ski that will do everything you want and need, look no further, this is the ski for you.
