Burly enough to rip spines in Alaska and light enough to conquer springtime objectives in the Rockies, Voile's V8 Ski is a powder-hungry touring machine. With all-mountain capabilities to keep you entertained all day long, you'll feel like a little kid in a candy shop with these sticks on your feet. The V8's waist ranges from 107 to a portly 119mm depending on your preferred ski length, making this ski a serious weapon for hot lapping pow fields and dropping stacks of pillows.Although the V8 rips it to oblivion on the descent, you won't be dragging deadweight up the hill--a pair of the 176s weighs in at just 7lb 9oz, so you'll be gliding up the skin track with a few laps still in you by the end of the day. The light weight is thanks to an aspen wood core, reinforced by a carbon fiberglass laminate to make sure that your ultra-light ski doesn't share the same properties as a wet noodle. For such a fat ski the V8 has a tight turn radius, giving you a snappy responsiveness you'll be stoked on when you end up in high-consequence terrain.
