So what do you get when you cross a Black carp with a Vector? A veritable workhorse.
The Voil̩ Vector BC adds a Voil̩ Traction Pattern Base to the reliably-efficient Vector and helps the adventurous backcountry skier get even further into the hinterland, especially when a long approach is required.
A very-recent testament to the strength and usefulness of the Vector BC is the story of Justin Lichter and Shawn Forrey's first-known winter traverse of the entire Pacific Crest Trail. In conjunction with conventional hiking and snowshoeing, the duo completed an unorthodox, north-to-south route, skiing 450 miles of the PCT in California on Voil̩ Vector BC's.
The Vector BC does not eliminate the need to carry skins into the backcountry, but once at the apex, skiers can expect downhill turning akin to the original Vector on steeper slopes and get a buzz (hear a hum) on lesser slopes.
