Volkl Blaze 106 (2022)
DescriptionThis is a pre-order product. ETA late May 2021
If you're after a lightweight freeride ski that can handle big terrain, the Volkl Blaze 106 is your ski. At 1830 grams a ski, you'll be as happy on long tours into the backcountry as you will be skiing first to last chair at the resort. The Titanal Binding Platforms along with Suspension Tips & Tails give this ski a quiet ride you'd expect in much heavier skis. Longer tip rocker and a touch of tail rocker make these skis a blast on the deeper days - any powder hound would be thrilled. 3D radius handed down from Volkl's all-mountain lineup ensures a snappy feel on the firm days and a catch free feel in any softer or variable snow. There's simply not another ski in this weight class that feels at home in so many conditions. We've yet to hear from someone who hasn't been totally blown away by it's performance in any of New Zealand's varying conditions.
