2021 Volkl Blaze 106 Skis

New for 2021, the Volkl Blaze picks up where the 100Eight left off. With similar measurements and overall feel and performance, the Blaze 106 has a few tricks up its sleeve to separate itself from its predecessor. One of Volkl's new favorite tech toys is the 3D Radius sidecut that puts more of the power in terms of turn control into the skier's hands, or feet. The harder you push, the more the ski will respond. Shorter-radius turns can be more playful, so if you find yourself in some deep snow and want to smear and slarve around a bit, the skis will do that just fine. If the fresh snow is a bit harder to be found, don't be afraid to let them run out there through the crud and mank, the longer radius capabilities of the Blaze 106 are top-notch. In addition to the radius, the skis also have the suspension tips and tails that contribute to ski damping and a quiet and smooth ride. Adding to the power of the ski is the titanal power plate found underfoot. Even at 106 and with a hybrid multilayer wood core, the Blaze can be stood upon and driven like a narrower piste-oriented ski and it responds quite well. For their weight, the Blaze 106 has the necessary ingredients to make for a stable ski, all without losing the powder and soft-snow capabilities that the skis are actually built for.

i am trying to decide what length of Volkl Blaze 106 ski to get. I am 6ft 175lbs and an aggressive all mountain skier. Current ski is Volkl Kendo 184cm
Question by: Val Reynolds on Oct 6, 2020, 3:04 PM
Hi, We believe that length is a personal choice and depends on how you like to ski. The 179cm would be my choice, at that length you would be able to go into the trees and bumps and be able to swing the ski easily. The longer length, 186cm would provide more stability at speeds and would drive you down the hill fast and with a longer turn radius. If you want to discuss length further, do not hesitate to call! 877-812-6710

Looking at replacing Volkl 90eight 50/50 ski and quite interested in the Blaze 106. Anyone able to compare the two with regards to tip taper, flex, and overall impression. TIA.
Question by: Bruno on Nov 25, 2020, 5:36 PM
The Blaze 106 would be a great replacement. Volkl basically took that ski back to the drawing board and came up with the Blaze. It's lighter and its rocker profile works better in soft snow, yet it still has good grip underfoot. The tip taper is actually pretty similar, but the longer rocker gives it a slightly different personality. The new construction is really good and I think you'll be very happy with it.
