A demanding backcountry rider need not be a distant, unemotional creature with a propensity for playing air guitar or relishing his “cave” time.
The truth is: Many of the toughest snowboarders and backcountry enthusiasts out there are women. And for them, the Voilé Womens Revelator fits the bill.
Ski and snowboard manufacturers often create simplistic female versions of their boards by merely softening and “shrinking and pinking” the male counterpart. That is not the case with the Voilé Womens Revelator. Yes, the Women’s Revelator is manufactured in smaller sizes and wears different graphics, but that’s as far as differences from that “other” Revelator really go. (To hell with pink and frilly designs, too.)
The board’s relative width, robust flex, long camber area, early-rise nose, and tapered tail all let the Womens Revelator not only keep up with the boys, but shred the sickest of lines, to boot.
And rumor has it that our signature Voilé Channel Puck System is quite the heartthrob, too.
Paulownia / Double Carbon
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.
Double Reinforced Binding Mounts
Heel and toe mounting areas are double-reinforced to prevent binding pull out.
Voile Carbon-Weave x2
Two layers of our proprietary carbon fiberglass regulate the ski's flex without an impact on bonding strength.
Laminated Paulownia Wood Core
The lightest wood core offered in our line, with an impressive strength to weight ratio. Paulownia provides the ideal foundation for building a lightweight touring ski.
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've been running the Revelator (149cm) for the past couple of years and what can I say - it's been a hoot! I don't like crowded resorts and this beast of a board gives me the ability to get away from it all and explore the backcountry to my heart's content. I use the Light Rail bindings and I'm completely happy with their functionality even after my bf one-upped me by getting the Speed Rail bindings for his Revelator. I also invested in the Dual Height Climbing Heels (which have been very useful during my adventures) and the crampons (which I honestly have not had much opportunity to use). One of my favorite things about all of this gear is how modular it is - Voile has made every part and piece of hardware available so that if anything needs to be replaced, you can make it happen without breaking the bank. I also love that the good folks at Voile have made it dead-simple to address any emergency adjustments or repairs needed while out in the backcountry. The tool kit that I carry consists of two very simple tools. A philips screw driver and a 9mm open-end wrench are all I need to keep me on the move.

Tested and True
Bought this board several years ago as my first splitboard. Being new to the sport, I put it to the test. Hitting logs, skinning over rocks, and truly riding it all conditions - this board withstood the test of time. I have now passed this board on to one of my friends and she continues to rip it. It is evident that Voile makes products that last! If you want a board that take it all in the backcountry, the Revelator is for you.

I am SOOOO Totally Stoked with my Revelator split board. I have the BC model as well and love that board as well! I started splitboarding on my boyfriends 166 originalnal Split Decision!!! Oh Shit! It was hard to turn being that I’m 5’3” small woman but I was totally hooked. I went everyday I could to get better on that board. I checked out the Voile site and I now glide thru the snow on my light weight easy to turn 149 Revelator . My feet start tingling and I can’t sleep knowing I will be ripping through the trees on my sweet Voile Revelator tomorrow! This is True Love!!! Pray For Snow!!!
