THE PRO'S TAKE
The Blaze 94 is a true freeride ski that excels in soft snow conditions. The lightweight construction and rocker tip and tail provide float while the Titanal plate provides support and grip under foot. Great ski for those looking for a fun, lightweight ski or one that can handle the alpine touring skin track while still providing a fun trip down!
The new Blaze series adds another dimension to the idea for intuitive freeriders who appreciate a playful ride coupled with agile and sporty maneuverability. The Blaze 94 weighs only 1,546 g (@ 179 cm) and is a highly versatile ski for outstanding performance in almost any conditions.
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 feature is the suspension tip. 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.
