The emerging category of lighter weight Playful Freeride skis ushers in a new era for skiers seeking lively, lightweight products with easy all-day handling in a wide variety of snow conditions. These are riders who constantly look for alternative terrain, either adjacent to the groomers or adjacent to the resort. With 4 new models, 2 unisex and 2 women’s, the all-new BLAZE series provides an off-piste feel for intuitive skiers who favor short turns, offering one of the lightest freeride skis in its class.
TECHNOLOGY & BENEFIT
Völkl’s 3D Radius sidecut technology – with longer radii at the tip and tail and a tighter shape in the midbody - allows the skier to make incredibly quick turns relative to the width of the ski. A new hybrid wood core has been engineered for lighter weight, giving the ski great maneuverability and quickness while maintaining Völkl’s signature edge grip.
In the new Suspension Tip design, the wood core follows the shape of the tip allowing a smooth, catch free ride quality despite the Blaze’s light weight. Under the binding, a titanal center sheet provides some extra grip and solid binding screw retention.
Whether dropping in from the first chair or after a quick skin, skiers who don’t like to follow the tracks have a new best friend with the Blaze.
