The Voile Spartan Ascent Splitboard shares the same fun-riding profile as the original Spartan that put Voile on the map for backcountry snowboarders, except this Ascent model is made lighter for an easier time on the skin track. Instead of an aspen core like the original Spartan, the Spartan Ascent's core is paulownia wood to shed nearly a full pound of the board's original weight, and to make up for stiffness, carbon stringers ensure the same flex as the Spartan without adding more weight. The Spartan Ascent also lessens its weight with a capped construction, just like all of Voile's splitboards and skis, and makes up for the durability with full-length steel edges. Voile builds all their skis and splitboards out of Utah, and as such, their splitboards need to be versatile enough to ride through Utah's thick trees, steep couloirs, and the occasional apron in spring corn or the best powder on earth. The Spartan Ascent sports Voile's freeride camber, which combines an early rise tail and nose with soft camber that can float the deepest pow and edge through the iciest hardpack. This unique shape provides a snappy turn radius that can maneuver around tight trees with ease, or bomb down a powdery aprons with minimal turning. If it were a snowboard, the Spartan would be considered all-mountain, but since it splits in two, the Spartan Ascent could be considered all-backcountry.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
