The “narrowest” Blaze (86 mm under the boot) is available in four lengths and offers an ideal combination of smooth “surfing” and light weight. As well as featuring a 3D radius sidecut, the Blaze 86 is built with a full tip-to-tail wood core. This not only trims the weight and makes the ski more lively, it also eliminates the need for plastic panels – a small but positive environmental aspect. The 86 model also comes with elasticated, rubbery suspension elements around the edges of its tip and the tail, which act like bumpers in wind-blown, unfavourable snow conditions, making the ski more settled and delivering great flotation.
The Blaze series is designed for fast, short turns. But its three different radii, especially in combination with a full hybrid multi-layer wood core, mean it is suited to every riding style and can handle even the most ambitious use. The Blaze 86 is ideal for sporty all-mountain skiers who want to go off-piste, and for classic freeriders and ski tourers who are happy to put up with an extra 100 g in exchange for significantly improved performance.
The Blaze is also used as a freeride touring ski, thanks to its light weight. That’s why Völkl also offers Smart Glue skins tailored to each Blaze model.
3D RADIUS SIDECUT
Three radii in one ski for maximum turning & speed versatility in all mountain skiing.
SUSPENSION TIPS & TAILS
Inserts made of elastic TPU material on the edges of the tip and tail which act like a bumper in wind-blown or tracked snow. Its shock-absorbing elasticity ensures better stability and catch-free float.
PRE-CUT SKIN AVAILABLE
MULTILAYER WOODCORE LITE
The combination of light beech and poplar results in a very durable woodcore composed of hard wood in the binding area and - due to its dedicated slots - lighter wood around.
