Völkl Blaze 94
Buy Now on The Ski Monster for $549.99
Völkl is adding a new “lightweight freeride” lineup of skis—the Blaze series—which aims to satisfy the needs of skiers bouncing between the resort and backcountry, and who want to do so with a single set of planks. Here, a multi-layer wood core, fiberglass laminate and a metal mounting plate make up the ski’s noticeably lightweight interior. Te Völkl Blaze 94 provides a tight turning radius that maxes out the carving factor but is built with enough rocker in the tip and tail to carry you through new snow and crud without a problem. Slap some do-it-all bindings to the brand new Völkl Blaze 94 and effectively cut the fat off your quiver—it might be the only ski you need.
FREESKIER tester thoughts:
“Holy carve. So quick to initiate and can make a tight ass turn. Also real smooth going fast—no chatter at all.”
