The newest ski in the Blaze lineup, the Blaze 86 W expands on what the other models are known for: lightness, ease and agility. Leaving the dampening element of titanal out of the construction not only makes for a slightly more lively ride, it also saves weight and eliminates the need for plastic inserts (a small, but positive environmental step forward). The Blaze 86 W is designed for fast, shorter turns, but the three different radii that the sidecut supports can handle the most ambitious terrain and demands. The shock-absorbing Suspension Tip and Tail ensure not only resistance, but also provide great lift, protecting and assisting the ski off-piste.
For the backcountry skier who is happy to withstand 100g extra weight for a significantly improved skiing experience, the Blaze 86 W is a real ski touring contender. Built with a light, capable, continuous tip-to-tail woodcore, uphill travel is totally doable, and downhill terrain is still completely rippable. An extremely versatile setup, the combination of all this technology makes the Blaze 86 W an intuitive ride that revolves around playfulness.
3D RADIUS SIDECUT: Three radii in one ski for maximum turning & speed versatility in all mountain skiing
SUSPENSION TIPS & 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.
HYBRID MULTILAYER WOODCORE: The extra-light hybrid multilayer wood core is a very complex core that is used in the Blaze. Light and very stable poplar and beech woods, individually weighed and selected by weight before gluing, are used in this wood core. In the tip-to-tail construction, the wood extends to the tip of the blade and end, giving them the sophisticated combination of good stability and low weight. In the center of the core, a CNC-milled Isocore area contributes to optimal liveliness and dynamic development. All in all, this design allows the stability of the ski to meet the high demands of a freeride ski, and this at a weight that is only slightly higher than that of a touring ski.
