November 24, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
ORS Cross Country Skis Direct, a leading retailer and distributor for the nordic and backcountry touring-telemark skiing industries in the United States, Canada and worldwide, recently announced availability of the Voile-USA Company's all-new products in the telemark-backcountry ski bindings category and the backcountry touring-telemark full-metal edge, waxless skis category. Featured products include the Voile SwitchBack X2 bindings and the Voile Vector BC skis. All Voile-USA products are offered for purchase individually or combined with other components in specific complete ski packages that include skis, boots, bindings and ski poles.

"Without a doubt Voile-USA is one of the hottest names in the back country touring and telemark skiing category. With products that are made in the United States and precision crafted for a lifetime of reliability and superior performance, our highly demanding, technically minded, backcountry-telemark ski clientele routinely ask for Voile by name.", explains Catherine Case, ORS Cross Country Skis Direct Consumer Relations and Sales Director. "We were blown away by what we saw from the Voile-USA new product presentation at the annual Winter Outdoor Retail show, and we are thrilled to now have the brand new Voile SwitchBack X2 bindings and the Voile Vector BC skis fully stocked in our warehouse and showroom floors. It's always been easy to interest our customers in this company's product line, and now it's going to be a lot of fun for our sales associates to list the advanced, innovative features found on these models available for the 2011-2012 winter ski season."

The Voile Vector BC skis (http://www.orscrosscountryskisdirect.com/voile-vector-bc-skis.html) have already attracted enormous attention and positive reviews within the ski industry. Backcountry Magazine declares the Voile Vector BC "a game changer…climb up without skins and ski down without limits." Based on the award-winning design and construction of the legendary Vector telemark skis model, the BC version features full-metal edges and a dynamic waxless skis grip pattern that eliminates the need for climbing skins on all but the most steep and torturing uphill grinds. The proprietary hybrid rocker design delivers an experience like no other in fresh powder, as well more variable snow conditions. Available in three lengths - 160cm, 170cm and 180cm, each size offers a unique sidecut design for optimal performance associated with that length and specific wide-platform width. Never has it been easier and more convenient to venture into the snowcovered, backcountry wilderness and efficiently access remote stashes for endless laps of high-performance downhill and telemark turns.

The Voile SwitchBack X2 ski bindings (http://www.orscrosscountryskisdirect.com/voile-switchback-x2-bindings.html) wasted no time in capturing the coveted Backcountry Magazine Editors Choice Award. With all the same state-of-the-art features found on the standard Voile SwitchBack binding, the all-new Voile SwitchBack X2 forges new frontiers and reresents the latest generation backcountry touring-telemark ski binding. With a stiffer cartridge by 25%, hardwire pivot point that is moved back 26mm and a 3cm longer toe plate, it significantly enhances lateral control, more active spring engagement and greater boot contact. The result is a superior performing binding for the most demanding and technical descents. The SwitchBack X2 is compatible with any 75mm telemark-backcountry touring ski boots and is available in two sizes, the Short Rods model for ski boot sizes 24 - 26.5 Mondo and the Standard Rods model for 27 - 31 Mondo boot sizes.
