Introducing the Volkl BLAZE series, a brand new ski range for the 2020/21 winter ski season. With 4 new models, 2 unisex and 2 women’s, the Volkl Blaze series provides an off-piste feel for intuitive skiers who favour short turns, offering one of the lightest freeride skis in its class.

So what’s the tech?

The new BLAZE uses Völkl’s 3D Radius sidecut technology – with longer radii at the tip and tail and a tighter shape in the midbody. This allows the skier to make incredibly quick turns (relative to the width of the ski).

The Blaze uses a new hybrid wood core, engineered for lighter weight and giving the ski great manoeuvrability and agility, but still 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 centre 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.
