  1. I was really interested in the Voile V6, but the scales has me at least looking into this ski. I generally like a small radius ski (non BC skis are atomic automatic, line prophet 98), so i don’t think that something with this radius would suit my style of skiing. Has anybody ridden the V6 or V8 from Voile as a comparison – as I am intersted in those for sure. Thanks

  2. I would love to see a comparison I the charger, vector and nunataq.

    Personally, I love the vector bc. It’s great to be able to leave the skins in the backpack, and I feel like I can ski the vector almost anywhere, though maybe not as fast as on my downhill skis (blizzard answer, peacemaker and volkl katana). That being said I’m happy skiing anything.

    I bought my wife a pair though and she’s not as impressed. She comes from a racing background and doesn’t like the vector at all – seems too soft we think but not sure.

    Would love to see your thoughts on charger vs vector. We suspect the nunataq would be her best choice but not sure.

    I wonder if she would prefer the charger BC. We know he loves the kiku and would probably like the nunataq but no bc pattern.

  3. I’ve had Volie BC’s (Vectors) with tech bindings since the 13/14 season and I agree with this reviewer, they’re an excellent choice for the backcountry when you have low angle entries and/or exits. Sure beats the hell out of slogging the flats with skins, or taking them off and on to handle rolling terrain.
    My Vector’s also don’t like back seat drivers and get deflected pretty easily in chop, crust or crud, too. But in any kind of powder they’re plain awesome.
