    Speed to burn.

    Americans are all about speed, so how come we've never made a killer skimo ski until now? There's no good answer, but Salt Lake City's Voile decided it was time to change that, so it made the new WSP Ski to be a superlight randonnée and mountaineering ski in the finest Euro-Lycra tradition. Designed to get you up in a hurry and down with reasonable ease, the WSP (Wasatch Speed Project) weighs just 1.75 pounds per ski, courtesy of its ultralight Paulownia wood core and carbon fiberglass cap construction. The design also keeps the WSP plenty stiff for serious descents down icy couloirs and techy faces, which compliments the sturdy underfoot camber. It's only 63mm underfoot, but the moderate tip rocker helps the WSP handle soft snow better than it's width would suggest, so you won't be overwhelmed if you encounter some pow on your trip back down to the parking lot.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Most race skis are stuck in the past with conventional side-cut and design. The do well on groomed runs, but that's about it. The WSP has an innovative shape and rocker to make it a much more forgiving ski in variable conditions in which many of these races, or long traverses take place. They aren't quite as light as many of the other competitive skis, but they aren't far off. I'm 6'3" and 190 lbs and it sounds absurd to be on a ski that's 160cm long and only 63cm under foot, but surprisingly they do really really well!

    Gooooood

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I haven't skied any other rando. skis so this review may be a little void, but ...



    These little things rip. This ski, like every rando. ski, goes up fast, but does surprisingly well on the down. Stiffness/dampness is perfect. They hold a decent edge on hardpack and ice, but, like any ski in this length when you're six feet tall, it's a little disconcerting. The WSP has a lot of rocker -- this I like.



    Again, it's hard to say exactly how good these things are when I can't compare them to another rando. ski (the WSP has way narrower specs, weighs 100 grams more, and is similarly priced to the rockered Atomic rando. ski), but at this price and with how well these have skied thus far, I have no regrets and no desire to find out.
