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.

If you are looking for gear and need something knowledgeable and patient, Tyler’s the guy
5 /5
I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Spencer helped me throughout the whole process of getting my perfect setup. Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

Great experience with Nate
5 /5
Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

I really appreciated Gregory’s help. I would’ve been flying somewhat blind on my own. He probably saved me countless hours in internet research. I really appreciate his thoughtful recommendations, patience, and guidance through the process. I feel great about the choices I made and can’t wait to shred with my new gear 🏂

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Spencer was super responsive and patient while I was trying to work from home but also purchased new snowboard gear. I had a lot of specifics I wanted to see with a new snowboard, bindings, and boots. Spencer was extremely knowledgeable and created a video to help me work through my available choices.

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!

Franky made my re entry to boarding not only easy after 15 years. He made it fun. And he got me a killer deal on a 2024 board! Hope to see ya out there some day Frankie!!!!!!
5 /5
If you don't know. Ask. I was clueless cuz the tech has changed since I stated. Frankie helped me get the exact board I wanted for the kind of terrain I was headed to. These are people who know what they are talking about. And are more than friendly. I got a collection of curated boards and all were winners. Only 1 came home.

I’ve been contemplating buying skis for over a year now and reached out to Bernard initially. A year and some later I was finally ready to bite the bullet. I messaged Bernard again hoping he would respond and give me a few more up-to-date suggestions and he responded immediately!! I was so appreciative as the thought of shopping for skis is so time consuming and such an investment!
