THE PRO'S TAKE
The Blaze 106 is one of the widest skis we stock at The Pro! Perfect for powder days or hiking up the skin track but still versatile enough to handle groomer laps. The Blaze has a lightweight construction throughout and is reinforced with metal underneath the foot added edge hold.
The new Blaze series adds another dimension to the idea for intuitive freeriders who appreciate a playful ride coupled with agile and sporty maneuverability. As the widest model in the line, the Blaze 106 weighs 1,772 g (@ 186 cm) and delivers fantastic flotation, even in soft snow.
A 0.3 mm thick Titanal binding platform provides direct power transfer and a fast pressure build-up from one edge to another. You will particularly benefit from the ski’s faster and more direct reaction in narrow and rough terrain – and with less effort. The Blaze has been primarily designed for short, fast turns but the three different radii together with the tip to tail hybrid multilayer wood core adapt to any riding style how ever ambitious.
A further notable new feature is the suspension tip, which makes its debut in the Blaze series. The elasticated, rubbery material on the tip and tail acts like a bumper in wind-blown or tracked conditions. It also improves resistance to disruption and provides fantastic flotation.
Planning on spending a lot of time uphill? Check out the lightweight alpine touring binding the Marker Kingpin. Looking for something that is a bit more downhill oriented? Check out the Marker Duke PT 12 or 16 which can convert from a traditional downhill binding to an alpine touring one.
