The introduction of the Blaze series was Volkl’s first step into melding Freeride with Backcountry and the Blaze 94 delivers! For those who want to be free to ride anywhere without restrictions, and still feel sporty at the resort. The crowd pleasing medium flex is got just enough pop to keep you on your toes with a damp and powerful feel when you need it. Titinal under the foot for some added horesepower and feel, Volkl’s renouned 3D sidecut for the perfect turn at any speed, and of course a lightweight tip to tail wood core to smooth out the feel in any condition. The idea was to give a little to every type of user and not to overpower the skier either, so you can have lightweight for the backcountry enthusiast and stabilty for the daily rider at the resort.
More thoughts from our staff:
The introduction of the Mantra marked the beginning of Völkl's powerful freeriding ski lines. For those who want to ride free without any restrictions, but with the full control of a sportive off-piste ski. The new Blaze series even adds another dimension to the idea. The concept of the ski targets the intuitive freerider who appreciates a playful and at the same time agile and sportive maneuverability. The Blaze 94 is built for an extremely wide range of use in all off-piste conditions while maintaining the ability to get it over on edge to dig trenches on those perfect corduroy days. A 0.3 mm thick Titanal binding plattform provides direct power transfer and a fast pressure built-up from one edge to another. This gives the ski the most direct response right from the turn initiation. In order to preserve the full flexibility and agility there is intentionally no Titanal included in the tip and the tail. The 3D radius sidecut significantly enhances the ski's liveliness and maneuverability. The Blaze construction targets the short turn-oriented skier, but the 3D radius together with the tip to tail Hybrid Multilayer woodcore adapts to basically every riding style. A new era in freeriding with state-of-the-art technology, the Völkl Blaze 94 is a top recommendation!
