A new era in freeriding is born with state-of-the-art technology for the ultimate ride in four lengths, each with a 94mm waist The introduction of the Mantra marked the beginning of Völkl's powerful freeriding ski line—for those who want to ride free without any restrictions but with the full control of a sporty all-mountain design. The new Blaze series now adds yet another dimension to the idea for intuitive freeriders who appreciate a playful ride coupled with agile and sporty maneuverability. The Blaze 94 weighs only 1,546g @ 179cm and is a highly versatile ski for outstanding performance in almost any condition. A 0.3mm thick Titanal binding platform provides direct power transfer and a fast pressure build-up from one edge to another. You will particularly benefit from the ski's faster and more direct reaction in narrow and rough terrain, all with less effort. The Blaze has been primarily designed for short, fast turns but the three different radii together with the tip-to-tail hybrid multilayer wood core adapt to any riding style, however ambitious. A further notable feature is the suspension tip. The elasticated, rubbery material on the tip and tail acts as a bumper in wind-blown or tracked conditions. It also improves resistance to disruption and provides fantastic flotation. Thanks to its light weight, the Blaze skis are also used as freeride touring skis. To this end, Völkl also offers Smart Glue skins that are tailor-made for each Blaze model. - 3D Radius Sidecut - Full Sidewall - Titanal Binding Platform - Suspension Tips & Tails - Base: P-Tex 2100
A ski for the rad woman who revels in agile, responsive turns all across the mountain, and might want to tackle an uphill touring effort followed by a technical backcountry descent. The Blaze 94 W is what we like to call "sporty". It delivers on many levels, but it is made for the high-octane delight of a skier that loves to turn on a dime, in every type of terrain. The 0.3mm thick layer of Titanal across the binding platform creates an impressively direct power transfer from skier movement to ski action. Keeping the Titanal only under the foot creates an incredibly fun and responsive turning experience that begins with little effort immediately upon initiation. Although it is designed with short turn radius goals, the 3D Radius Sidecut and Hybrid Multilayer Woodcore significantly enhances the ski's liveliness and maneuverability for any turn shape. At only 1427g (@ 165cm length) and with the addition of the Suspension Tip and Tail (a rubbery "bumper" for whatever the ski comes in contact with), it is a fantastic touring ski as well. Regardless of resort skiing glory, off-piste endeavors, or backcountry objectives, the Blaze 94 offers an incredibly wide range of use in all conditions. - 3D Radius Sidecut - Full Sidewall - Titanal Binding Platform - Suspension Tips & Tails - Base: P-Tex 2100
Made for skiers who love varied terrain and expect maximum performance with minimal effort If you're a skier that's always up for anything and never fails to bring the positivity, the Yumi 84 might just be the ski for you. With an 84mm waist and a 3D Radius Sidecut, it strikes the balance between perfect shredding on piste, playful skiing in poor snow conditions, and full performance on powder days. The unique combination of fiberglass frame construction with the Titanal binding plate provides more stability and power transmission without adding weight. The ski feels soft AND lively, which means you can crank it up. The rocker profile in the tip and tail gives freedom of movement off-piste and the tapered tip makes turn initiation almost automatic. Effortless reliability meets ease of playability in the Yumi 84. - 3D Radius Sidecut - Full Sidewall - Glass Frame - Titanal Binding Platform - Base: P-Tex 2100
