“For the deepest of days, experience freeride through a different lens.

For the guys and gals setting their sights on storm days and endless in-bounds powder laps, the Blade Optic 114 is here to answer the call. Equipped with our Gas Pedal Metal Overdrive™ technology, paired with a refined rocker profile, attuned tapering, and functional waist width, the Blade Optic 114 is a super stable stomp stick that will float through the deepest of deep and plow through crud. Kick it into overdrive and experience freeride through a new lens on the Blade Optic 114.”

Flex Pattern

Tips:6-6.5

  1. Really keen to hear more about this ski in the full review and deep dive. Comparisons with Kästle ZX115, Rossi Sender Squad, BlackOps 118, Anima, Koala 118, Dynastar M-Free 118 and no doubt a bunch of others, will be interesting. Also be great to get Jonathan’s take as it seems to have a bunch of traits that might suit him. Any idea on what the 192 weighs?

    • Totally, those should all be good comparisons.

      I’d guess the 192 weighs around 2400 grams, but we won’t know for sure unless we can weigh a physical pair.
