The Völkl Blaze 94 Skis are the perfect choice for freeriders who want to ride free without any restrictions but with full control of a sporty all-mountain design. The Blaze series adds yet another dimension to the idea for intuitive freeriders who appreciate a playful ride coupled with agile and sporty maneuverability. With its lightweight design, this ski offers outstanding performance in almost any condition.

Key Features:

  • Titanal binding platform: A 0.3 mm thick Titanal binding platform provides direct power transfer and a fast pressure build-up from one edge to another, resulting in faster and more direct reactions in narrow and rough terrain.
  • Suspension tip: The elasticated, rubbery material on the tip and tail acts like a bumper in wind-blown or tracked conditions, improving resistance to disruption and providing fantastic flotation.
  • Hybrid multilayer wood core: The three different radii together with the tip-to-tail hybrid multilayer wood core adapt to any riding style how ever ambitious.
  • Lightweight design: Weighing only 1,546 g (@ 179 cm), these skis are also used as freeride touring skis.

3.6/5
Luke Hinz tested this product
Volkl built the Blaze series to be a more playful and more approachable lineup than its very popular all-mountain set of skis, i.e. the Mantra and Kendo. While those skis sport a Tailored Titanal Frame that makes them quite burly on groomers and firm snow, the Blaze has a simple wood core and only a Titanal binding reinforcement plate... Read more
Ideal for
  • The Volkl Blaze is best suited as a hybrid ski for a skier looking for a ski capable of both resort skiing and touring.
  • The Blaze is a much softer and more playful ski than its Volkl all-mountain siblings, such as the Mantra.
  • The Blaze is relatively light for an all-mountain ski, making it more nimble and lighter on the legs.
Not ideal for
  • The Blaze is not as confident on firm snow as other stiffer, heavier all-mountain skis.
  • The Blaze can carve up to medium speeds, but at higher speeds the tip is prone to chatter.

5 /5
I finished a season snowboarding in Snoqualmie Pass and Sarah was great at offering insight about what kinds of gear were best for the terrain I'd see at my typical groomed mountains! She was very responsive to all of my questions and it felt like I was asking a friend for advice rather than a sales pitcher. I feel grateful to have matched with a knowledgeable local and will look to get more recommendations from her. It is my first time buying snowboarding gear and Curated had just what I needed - price match included!

Nico rocked!
5 /5
Nico helped me tackle the overwhelming and vast realm of purchasing my first ski setup. He was super knowledgeable and took the time to learn about me. The gear he picked out for me really catered towards what I told him I liked to do on the mountain as well as my budget restrictions. All in all great experience and really helped me get over the hump of investing in my own gear!

Wasn't planning on making my purchase today but he steered me in the right direction with prompt knowledge and recommendations that took all of my input into account. Not pushy in the slightest.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.
