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.
