The Voile Charger skis combine early-rise tips with traditional camber underfoot for excellent performance in powder and the ability to carve hard snow on your way back to the car.
Lightweight construction makes the Chargers a good choice for tours in deep snow; aspen wood cores are wrapped in fiberglass that is woven with carbon for a light, snappy feel
Early-rise tips help you float through the deep powder on the descent and ease trail breaking in deep snow during the ascent
Traditional sidecut underfoot lets you carve turns on firm snow as you make your way out of the woods
Tails of the skis turn up just a touch and are compatible with the tail attachments of most climbing skins (sold separately)
Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
Voile Charger skis have sintered bases that retain wax well and provide good glide

Comments about Voile Charger Telemark / Randonee Skis - 2012/2013:
Great all mountain fat ski choice. The 181 cm weighs in at 8.2 lbs. I skiied them in moguls, trees, powder, crusty mixed resort snow, and found them capable and fun in variety of conditions.
There are a number of new skis in this category, but I think the Voile Charger may be the best value. They certainly have a strong following among the tele crowd.
As with all the fat skis, make sure you have very effective boot fit to help pop through those turns, and an effective binding.
I skied them with Hammerhead bindings, and very sound Scarpa T1 fit w heat molded Intuition & foot beds. With this binding and boot rig, I thought these skis handled a wide variety of conditions extremely well.
But you're not going to like these skis with sloppy boot fit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
