Where's my Light Rail order?

We sincerely apologize for the continued delays in delivery of the Voile Light Rail splitboard specific binding and the Voile Mojo RX/Light Rail Package.

The first orders will begin shipping on Friday Dec. 17 and remaining backorders will be shipped complete by Mon. Jan 17, 2011. We have significant orders for the Voile Light Rail binding and they will not all ship at once. We are working hard to deliver your order as fast as possible.

First of all, your order will be prioritized and delivered based on the date you placed your order(ie. Earliest orders ship first).

Currently, the Voile website lists the Light Rail delivery date as Feb. 14, 2011. Please understand this is for NEW orders only. We assure you that you have not lost your place in line.

Why the delay?

In an effort to improve the Heelcup, Ankle and Toe Straps, this has caused significant delays. While these processes were started in the summer, the component part approval can take a significant amount of time to get the components exactly to our spec.

What are the changes?

We have added more fore-aft adjustment to the Heelcup as well as made the part more precisely fit the Light Rail base plate.

The Ankle Strap has been slightly re-sized for better fit and we have added a new molded foam back.

Further we have added a protective leather sleeve(Toe) or strapping(Ankle) to protect the adjustable and ladder straps of both the Toe and Ankle Straps.

Voile will provide more detail and product photos when the Light Rail bindings begin to ship.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions. Thanks for your patience.

New Voile Splitboard Touring Riser

Increase your uphill touring rotation and enhance your edging ability while side-hilling with the new Voile Splitboard Touring Riser.

This 10mm riser, especially with larger boots, increases the rotational angle of your binding and prevents the boot toe from hitting the deck of your board.

It will also give you more leverage and boot/binding angulation to enhance your edging ability on steep sidehills.

Voile Splitboard Crampon Updated!

The fit and function of the Voile Splitboard Crampon is now compatible with the Voile Light Rail splitboard specific binding and Voile Splitboard Dual Height Climbing Heels.

The Voile Splitboard Crampon functions both fixed to the board and mobile attached to your binding. In the fixed mode, you have the advantage of full penetration into the snow, while the climbing wire is in the up position. In the mobile mode, the Voile splitboard crampon is attached to the binding and moves with the binding as you hike.

The changes to the Voile splitboard crampon include removing material to allow for clearance and fit of the Light Rail on the Voile Light Rail splitboard specific binding.

Also, clearance was added for both the standard Voile Climbing Heels and new Voile Splitboard Dual Height Climbing Heels. This fix is most evident while using the crampon in the mobile mode.

Voile Charger Backcountry skis win Backcountry Magazine's 2011 Editor's Choice

In 2010 Voile introduced the award winning Voile Drifter ski design, providing skiers with a whole new skiing experience.

Now you can get that same experience in a slimmer, more nimble package.

Introducing Voile Charger skis, a Backcountry Magazines' 2011 Editors' Choice.

From Backcountry Magazine 2011 Gear Guide:

Sharing the same heavily rockered tip, lightweight aspen core construction, and powder surfing instincts as its big brother, the Drifter, the new Charger has a slimmer, more skintrack friendly shape. Though charged up by its agility and smearability, some testers received too much of a jolt in mixed and firm conditions. Low marks on hardpack and in chunder, however, were tempered by accolades for energy, playfulness, stability, and versatility in powder. Testers raved, saying it was "love at first smear," "totally stable in the trees" and a "powder technician."

+ "Run as fast as you want, then dump speed on a dime. FUN bc powder ski."

- "Like a butter knife, these don't cut, they prefer to smear."

= A powder-eating, super-charged touring board that's also a great value.
