What Volkl says about the Blaze 114

“The sustainable freeride adventure ski at its best.

To cut to the chase: The Blaze 114 is as wide as its range of use. In addition, it is also produced in an environmentally friendly way. Völkl uses a recycled base and only FSC-certified wood in combination with the new Green Core technology. The Isocore inside the wood core is made of recycled PET bottles instead of the conventional PU foam. When it comes to riding performance, the Blaze 114 is destined for off-piste adventures. Thanks to its efficient weight-performance ratio, it is also quite suitable as a freeride touring ski. But it really comes to life on the downhill. The rather narrow 18 m radius in relation to a ski length of 192 cm delivers a maneuverability previously unknown in this category. This is additionally supported by an open radius both at the shovel and at the tail combined with tip & tail rocker. To enable smooth running at high speeds, a 0.3 mm thin titanal sheet was added to the 3D Radius Sidecut in the center of the ski right above the sidewall. Thus, the ski can be controlled with great precision – you will notice this in every turn initiation. By the way, these riding characteristics also work really well on the occasional on-slope rides too! To keep the all-mountain ski as agile as possible, no titanal is used in the outer areas front and rear. The Blaze is designed with increasing flex in relation to the length of the ski, so that larger or heavier riders benefit from the same driving characteristics as the smaller or lighter riders with shorter ski lengths.”
