The Voilé WSG (Wasatch Speed Girl) is Voilé’s offering to women SkiMo racers. That said, the ski is, by no means, a frou-frou version of the men’s WSP ski.
SkiMo racing is a very demanding sport, and the female racer is equally demanding of herself and her gear. As such, she won’t find pink hues, floral motifs or, God forbid, a flimsy flex in her Voilé SkiMo skis. And she wouldn’t be happy with a ski that didn’t possess the same Paulownia wood core, carbon-fiberglass construction and rockered tip as the male WSP version.
Most women know (or say) that size doesn’t matter, but few would argue the relative merits of not dragging an extra 10cm of ski up the hill. The Voilé WSG is manufactured in a single length of 150cm, the minimum length allowed for females by the ISMF in SkiMo racing.
Also, we at Voilé wish to formally expunge our previous faux pas of labeling the WSG an “all-out war machine.” Wars are dumb. Women are smart. And many kick ass.
Paulownia / Double Carbon
Running-Length Steel Edge
Two lengths of 1.8mm steel with inset teeth wrap the running length of the ski. Each section extends beyond the contact 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.
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. Maybe it's just marketing hype propagated by nefarious manufacturers...
Regardless, you can rest assured that your p-tex repairs will be seamless after your day spent breaking the sound barrier.
