The only reason you're in the backcountry in the first place is to score untracked snow after the storm has ended, so you might as well have a powder-specific shape while you're out there. The Voile V-Tail Splitboard has a long, rockered nose and a swallowtail to keep you afloat in the deepest snow you can find out there.

Camber underfoot provides pop and power and improves edge hold on firmer snow, while early-rise rocker in the tip gives it float in powder and offers a more forgiving feel. The swallowtail keeps your tail down and your nose up, and it improves maneuverability in deep snow. A setback stance helps you keep your nose up in the deep stuff, and carbon glass ensures a stiff, responsive flex for control and precision. Paulownia wood in the core decreases weight without sacrificing strength, and it comes from sustainably-harvested trees.

If you are looking for a split that floats effortlessly in pow, look no further than the V-Tail. Holy Moly this is a fun board to ride - did I mention it kills it on the not so powdery stuff as well. It's stiff but responsive and turns with ease. In pow, you'll find that you can lean forward, meaning you take some of that pressure of the back leg. I agree with Dan's post below, this is like strapping into a rocket ship. For skins, go with the Voile skins w/out a tail clip - you can modify them with an alternate clip if you want - it would be kinda interesting though.

Do the regular G3 skins fit this board or do I need special skins for the swallowtail?

Hey Craig,



For the swallowtail honestly the best bet is a straight tailed skin with out a tail clip cut to the contact point before the tail "fins". This gives you the most surface area grip. I like the voile skins as they have the most grip trimmed in this way for the V-tail. On all my other boards I use the G3 skins.

How does the V-Tail split perform on hardpack? Is it stable at speed and will it carve well on groomers/hardpack?

Hey Joe,



This thing is great on groomers, and pretty good on hardpack. One thing to think about on hardpack is the tail chatter however. Swallowtails made for the resort are super stiff on the tail. However since this is a powder machine it is a little softer. That being said it is super fun on groomers. If you haven't ridden a swallowtail before it's like strapping into a rocket ship.

Dear Sir or Madam.



I'd love to purchase the Voile Split Decision V-Tail (180) from you.

Living in Swtzerland, I will unfortunately pay 2 times VAT plus shipping (99 bucks) and tax (once).

Can you substract the VAT from sales prices, when shipping to Switzerland? That would be great (and make me instantly order ;))



Best regards



Tom
