The Blaze 94 W represents a new direction for Völkl, a brand best known for producing stiff skis more suited to charging groomers and crud than playing in the bumps and trees. The new Blaze 94 W, however, has a livelier personality and more forgiving nature courtesy of the ski’s new hybrid multilayer wood core. Testers found they could ski it like a traditional Völkl ski, i.e. high edge angles at high speed, but appreciated this new ski’s agility and willingness to also skid turns in tight places.

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Crud Performance
