Never known for stagnation in their ski design, Volkl has scrapped the popular Eight series and replaced them with an all new Blazing hot lineup. The Volkl Blaze 106 Skis are big mountain freeriders with long, rockered tips and tails, short cambered sections underfoot, a triple radius sidecut, and, most notably; they're crazy light for a ski of their class. Thanks to a titanal power plate and extra long radii in the tips and tails, these rip sticks handle scary fast descents with grace and ease, but the medium short primary turn radius and insanely lightweight construction (did we mention that these skis don't weigh very much?) make for a playful and nimble ride. All in all, the new Blaze 106's are fun, fast, and versatile, whether you ride them inbounds or add Kingpins or Shifts for a ripping 50/50 backcountry setup.
Tip & Tail Rocker – Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle.
3D Radius Sidecut – Three radii in one ski shape deliver maximum versatility - long radii at the tip and tail for stability and smoothness, and a short radius in the mid-body allows the skier to switch from long arcs to short turns at will, at any speed.
Multilayer Woodcore – The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood surrounding it.
Titanal Power Plate – A thin Titanal layer (0.3 mm) under the binding delivers the necessary strength to the ski. This way the binding screws offer reliable hold even in the toughest conditions.
Suspension Tips and Tails – Inserts made of elastic TPU material on the edges of the tip and tail which act like a bumper in wind-blown or tracked snow. Its shock-absorbing elasticity ensures better stability and catch-free float.
Full Sidewall – Direct and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.
P-Tex 2100 – A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
