Volkl Blaze 86 Skis - 2023
The Blaze series, which was successfully launched last year, is being
expanded to include a new model with four lengths and 86 mm under the
boot. 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.
