Description


Brawny, yet agile. Obese, yet svelte. Floatable, yet carvable. A list of ridiculous ironies and superlatives could go on and on, but one thing is for certain: The Voilé V8 is the ultimate fun hog.

We’re not just blowing our own horn here. That’s what the testers from Backcountry, Powder and Freeskier Magazines all said, too.

The V8’s ultra-wide shovel, tapered tail and perfect amount of sidecut all add up to an incredibly stable ride in deep powder, without sacrificing the maneuverability needed for skiing in tight places. And, of course, our signature Voilé Hybrid Rocker shines in the mix, as well.

Sounds great, but you may be thinking that a ski this burly must also weigh in like an Abrams Tank. Not so, think again. The V8’s lightweight Aspen core and carbon-fiber construction keep its weight to a minimum. (The actual amount even surprises us.)

Deep in the backcountry or deep in powder at the resort, the V8 gives skiers an amazing platform to conquer almost any terrain and condition.

I'd never imagine when I bought these skis how amazing they are. I read few good reviews of the V8 and wanted a ski that I wouldn't see often at the feet of others skiers in south of France but they exceeded my expectations. I won't explain in details why they are so good, Blake has done that very well, I just say that I own the 186 and I use them for everything, every snow conditions from powder to ice, everywhere...powder, resort, on piste, backcountry, touring...they ride like a 120+ underfoot in powder and a 100 in hard pack. Voile, NEVER stop the V8, please.

My Favorite Ski 5+ stars!

I have owned this ski in 176, 181, 186, and currently 193. Ive been skiing on various versions of this ski for at least 5 seasons. I am 6'2" and have to say my favorite size is 181 or 186. These sizes work for everything: tight trees no problem, steep and technical they are plenty predictable for that, and when the snow isnt perfect they make you look like a master in breakable curst. The narrow and slightly softer tails are really forgiving if you get thrown back seat. These mid range sizes are super nimble and fun to flick around in tight trees. I upped to the 193 last year, and they do work great for the deepest powder days and super fun at the resort. The problem is most of my touring boots have trouble pushing it around. I have to say I have never had a problem riding the 193's in the deepest of Teton powder days, resort or backcountry. There is not a ski I would recommend more, as a one ski quiver in a powder prone area, or as part of your collection. This ski is absolutely legendary and I plan to have at least one pair ready to ride at all times!

I've used the V8 for four years now and they are my favorite skis I've ever been on. They are light enough not to wear you down too much on the way up yet you can charge them as hard as you can. I have a pair of these for laps at the resort and powder days in the backcountry.

I have been skiing this ski for the last 4 years, and it is my all time favorite ski (ever). Early rise and tail taper make for easy turn releases and predictability in the most variable conditions. The camber under foot is perfect, allows for energy exiting the turn while also making the ski incredibly versatile. I know they arn't meant for it, but the thing can rail turns on the hard pack in between powder stashes. It is also a great tourer, while the HyperVersion is even lighter the OG V8 strikes a nice balance on weight but can still plow through some crud. Versatile, predictable and , IMHO, all time.
