Description


Never a slave to orthodoxy, Voilé Manufacturing has always been on the forefront of creative thinking and unusual ideas to help improve the backcountry skiing experience.

So when we asked ourselves how we might further modify the already-marvelous, incredibly-versatile V6, the answer seemed obvious: Take it fishing. And that’s exactly what we did—not for trout, bass or crappie—but by adding fish-like scales to its base, a feature we’ve dubbed the “Voilé Traction-Pattern Base.”

The Voilé V6 BC represents Voilé’s third foray into the domain of scaled-base skis, as preceded by the Vector BC and Charger BC. Admittedly, such skis are not for everyone or every variety of slope. That said, for the backcountry skier who must continually make long approaches over undulating terrain, the V6 BC’s can be a welcome godsend.

Does the V6 BC replace the need to carry skins? No, definitely not. Is there are a compromise in downhill glide on lesser slopes? Yes, and we’re sorry, but earplugs are not included.

Thanks to the same lightweight Aspen core and carbon-fiber construction as the V6, as well as our signature Voilé Hybrid Rocker, the V6 BC will still impress when skiing steeper downhill pitches.

And who’s gonna argue with the tedium of applying and removing skins too often?

Too easy

Theres a bit of a learning curve with fish scale BC skis. I happen to live somewhere where these skis make a lot of sense. Mellow approaches to powder & corn stashes are too easy. Aim for a setup with minimal transition and you have a killer BC setup.

Specialist - is the name I would give the ski. I live in the front range with extremely long approaches. This ski is fast, cruzing up the old mining roads. The fish scales work perfect unless you need to click onto your higher riser, then it’s time to put your skins on.They are not the fastest at the ski resort but like I said they are Specialist. If you do a lot of up and down all around exploring this is the ski for you. I have two pairs!!

What a Brilliant Ski!! Voile really nailed it with the V6 BC. Got these for short approaches, quick up and down skiing and approaches, that can be found in the NorthEast-Maine & NH. My primary use is skiing logged forest areas off the grid, and the V6 BC delivers. Easy -fast climbing and floats on the down. Skied it on Deep-dry powder 12-18"+, Deep Wind-firm powder, Wind-firm dense-firm snow, Soft Spring-like Powder-New Snow 8-10"+ and 2-5". Skis are amazing they handle all kinds of snow with ease-barely a learning curve. See them in action in my Video Review: https://youtu.be/F9P8ON3VFXs Better yet try them out!!

AMAZING skis. I put 22 design Axl on them. I telemark ski and i happily discovered that they are very easy to turn. They handle powder beautifully. The traction pattern is great, if that is what you are looking for, but it does slow the skis down a little bit but that was expected. I would recommend them for sure. Not so sure about the anti-ice top sheet yet, the snow became a bit sticky that day. I tried them in 60 cm ( +- 25") of powder in Manning park, BC , in the North Cascades. They kept me right on top of it.

Agreed!

I agree with everything stated in the other reviews. I am also a telemarker. I’m using the 22Designs Lynx mounted 2cm aft of boot center A great setup in my opinion. The skis are a dream with great float and superb turning. Due to the tele bindings I cannot use the Hyper version but I have no complaints as this setup is pretty light and cuts through the crud quite well. I also agree that they don’t glide quite so well on low angle hard pack. Overall a super design by Voile.

Heroes of Telemark

In a backcountry world dominated by AT and splitboard riders, it isn't easy to be a telemark skier. In fact, it never was; many of us still remember the leather boots and skinny skis we learned on. But we're proud and stubborn, and in our hearts we've always known that with the right equipment, we could shred with the rest. The V6 BC give us what we've always needed: 98 mm underfoot for stability, scales for efficient touring, and rocker tips for flotation and snappy turns. My wife and I ski mostly in California's Sierra Nevada. We bought matching pairs of 173's this year, and paired them with Voile's superb Switchback bindings, Scarpa T2 Eco boots, and G3 Alpinist skins. What a setup! Not too heavy for extended touring, and superb for turning, especially in powder. Our first time out, in mixed conditions near Carson Pass, we floated and turned effortlessly in the pow, and had all the rigidity and power we needed to carve through the crust. Then we summitted Waterhouse Peak on snow that had already begun its inevitable evolution to Sierra cement. Our descent through the trees was the most controlled, dominant, and fun run we have ever had on Waterhouse, despite the so-so snow. These V6 BCs have finally made us the skiers we always dreamed we could be. Bottom line: Voile V6 BCs are true Heroes of Telemark. Try them, backcountry telemarkers, and see for yourselves. You won't be disappointed.

Love the V6!

I have owned the V6 BC for two years and it has been my go-to backcounrty ski. The V6 is nearly effortless to turn, has an easy to float tip and just enough waist width to keep me floating nicely in Colorado backcountry powder. I've been happy with its weight, although I'm excited to try the Hyper V6. The BC has scales that have been bitter sweet. I don't notice them slowing me down in untracked snow. They are extremely handy when I've skied into a creek gully or hit a small knoll on a descent and need a quick climb out. Transitions are nice because the ski doesn't slide away from you. I've even successfully kept up with my rando-race gear clad buddy on a mining road climb without skins. However the drawback is that the scales do stop me from gliding back down that same flat mining road descent such as we often find on the front range getting to and from ski terrain. In these cases my friends are long back at the car while I'm cross-country skating a couple miles back. You have to weigh the pros and cons. My next pair will likely be the Hyper V6 because I already know I love the way the V6 skis, the weight to surface area float is unmatched in the industry, and for me, I decided that I will pass on the fish scales next time.
