Description




Short for Wasatch Speed Project and born in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains, the WSP is the world’s first American-made SkiMo ski. It’s two days after a huge storm, and across the canyon, there are a bizillion bozos slogging up a cat track at the resort. Go figure.

For those skiers who relish the pain of SkiMo racing, or their newfound association with Eurotrash, Voilé now offers a terribly-reliable ski to further inflict anguish upon themselves: The Voilé WSP.

Yes, “further” is accurate all right. Especially since the WSP is built to finish races without breaking beforehand.

Thanks to its Paulownia wood core, carbon-fiberglass construction and rockered tip, the Men’s WSP is light enough to climb uphill with speed, yet stable enough to ski downhill without embarassment. And most importantly, stay in one piece.

Voilé: It sounds French and has always meant “lightweight skis.” As such, the advent of The WSP was probably inevitable.

Product Reviews

versatile and light and fun

I've been pleasantly surprised with how versatile this ski is. I have used them to kick and glide for long approaches and to go up and down lots of varied terrain. A really great ski! So light!

Toothpicks that can shred pow

Granted, I have not skied any other race skis to compare - but I am real happy with the WSP! I live in Utah and was excited there was a local and affordable option for race skis, as I am dabbling in skimo. Paired with some Aliens and Plum binders it's a crazy light setup (which is the whole point) - but I was worried about the downhill ability of skis this small, coming from a 174cm ski with a 100mm+ waist. Yet Voile somehow made these twigs very capable on the descent. Whatever combination of layup, rocker and sidecut they came up with works great. I've skied icy moguls, groomers, breakable crust and 2 feet of powder on these guys. Granted, this is a 160cm/63mm waist ski and breakable crust is NEVER easy, but these guys still got me though it. And deep pow is surprisingly fun! I'm 5'8", 150lbs, so big guys: YMMV. But I love my WSPs!

Title says it all. Super light but not squirrelly. Given the build specs I don’t hesitate pushing the ski on race day. I appreciate the rocker and geometry when things get off piste and am amazed at how I can hold an edge on the boiler plate. Having skied on other race skis, I’m confident in what the WSP brings to the table when the lactate level goes up!

Fast n' light

Though I'm a woman, I decided to opt for the men's WSP so that I could use them for a little more than racing. They are fast and light on the up, and ski pretty dang well on the down! They excel on corn or groomers: I've used them for randonee races as intended, but I've also skate skied long distances across flats, and I even managed a 10k backcountry day on them on all sorts of variable snow (I'm aware that that's not their intended purpose). They are light as heck and a pleasure to walk around on--and if you're not on breakable crust or powder, they're super fun to ski down as well!
