Volkl Blaze 94 Skis
For light weight all-mountain fun, there's not a lot out there better suited than the Volkl Blaze 94. When you pick them up, it's impressive how light they are, but Volkl does their Volkl things with them, making them remarkably versatile and stable all at the same time. Built with a hybrid multi-layer wood core, the skis feature a mix of softer and lighter wood stringers to go along with the denser and stiffer ones. These larger vertical blocks of wood stringers give the ski its incredible energy, all while keeping the weight down to a very manageable 1546 grams per ski in the 179 cm length. In addition, the skis feature Volkl's 3D Radius sidecut, allowing the skier to more predictably and accurately decide the turn shape and style. By varying up the radius, the skier can use shallower edge angles in the forebody and through the tails to get a longer turn shape, and if you push more on the central part of the ski, they start to come around like a slalom ski. Ultimately, you're looking at about a 17-meter turn radius in the 179, but it's really amazing how the ski is comfortable and capable at any turn shape and arc. They carve clean round turns, and at the same time, they can skid and smear some quick slash turns. At 94 mm underfoot, the skis are right in the sweet spot for making a true all-mountain ski, but with Volkl's freeride flari.

I am 32 years old, 5'8" tall and weigh 187 lbs. I've been skiing since almost 15/20 years ago, and I'd say my level is strong intermediate or maybe advanced, but not close to expert.
Looking to buy my first pair of skis, and looking for something suitable for all-mountain (since snow conditions in Argentina are not always the best), but that behaves well off-piste and with powder, since I really enjoy that.
My choices are between this Volkl Blaze 94, Armada ARV 96 or Head Oblivion 94, so I ask you the experts what do you think or if there's any alternative you'd recommend? Maybe Mantra M6? Sorry I give so many options but I am new at this haha
PS: I had a knee injury so, would prefer something that's not too demanding on that regards, although it's not a must.
I think the Blaze makes a lot of sense, as it has the all-mountain versatility while still remaining a pretty solid directional ski. ARV and Oblivion might be on the flexy side while the Mantra is likely too demanding. The Blaze 94 in either the 165 or 172 makes the most sense to me. Have fun!
I am 53, experienced skier (strong intermediate). Usually going on pistes. looking for forgiving but yet fun skies. The Volkl Blaze 94 caught my attention. What do you think? Any other options to think about?
I am 5'6". The 165 will be a good size for me?
