In addition to the proven 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, but also eliminates the need for plastic panels – a small but positive environmental aspect. The 86 model also comes with elasticated, rubbery suspension elements on the edges of the tip and the tail, which act like a bumper in wind-blown or unfavourable snow conditions and not only offer more resistance to disruption but also deliver great flotation.
The Blaze series is generally designed for fast, short turns. However, the three different radii, especially in combination with the full hybrid multilayer wood core, are designed for every riding style and can handle even the most ambitious use. From the all-mountain skier who wants to go off-piste, to the classic freerider or touring skier who will put up with an extra 100 g of weight for significantly improved skiing performance, the Blaze 86 is a top recommendation!
Thanks to its light weight, the Blaze is also used as a freeride touring ski. To this end, Völkl also offers Smart Glue skins that have been perfectly tailored to each Blaze model.
