What line of lightweight mountaineering skis would be complete without a race ski? Blizzard takes the Zero G platform on the Attack, with an easy skiing (for a race ski) rocker-camber-rocker profile and 24 meter radius. Built with a “compound carbon ultralight sandwich”, the Zero G Attack makes you hungry for more laps. Bamboo stringers highlight the complex Isocore that is the meat of the said sandwich, the technology for which Blizzard developed while building race skis for other brands. The semi-square tip blends the lift of square tips with the precision steering of pointier shapes. It’s also of course slotted with notches for race skins. Go Attack some races with the most nimble member of the Zero G family.

  • Lite Core technology consists layers of bamboo and light woods welded together.
  • Subtle rocker complements the camber underfoot for a ski that does what you expect.
  • Compound Carbon Ultralight Sandwich whets your appetite for more up and downhill.
  • Promised to maintain Blizzard’s reputation for only producing skis that perform.

Bottom Line Solid racing ski
by Chris W (used product regularly)
I have an older pair of these skis. These are the same weight, dimensions, and camber/rocker as my older pair, so the formula seems to be the same. They've been a solid first race ski the past season (8 races + practice laps in and out of bounds). Not astonishingly light by race standards, but night-and-day difference even from other light, short touring skis. Don't knock them for weight though - they're comparable to or lighter than other mainstream skimo offerings, only bested by the fairly exotic stuff. I'm not a stellar skier by any means, but for short skis, these work well. It would be neat to try something with more camber, like the Voile WSP - though they seem to be an outlier in that regard, so perhaps Blizzard and others have the right formula after all.
