A 105mm ski just took a seat at the Zero G table. While the 108 is a crusher, it wasn’t the same lightweight construction as the 85 and 95. Now you can have your cake and eat it too. Similar resort-worthy performance as the 108, but easier to carry uphill. At 105mm wide, this Zero G is built using an updated Carbon Drive 2.0 construction. This is a layer of unidirectional carbon fiber that gives torsional stiffness while allowing the lightweight core to flex naturally. The 1.0 version gave the 0G series extreme reliability on hard snow combined with excellent durability. The 2.0 continues that reputation, with a slight refinement towards more friendly skiing in terms of flex. With ample underfoot width for float in soft and variable conditions, the 105 didn’t just take a seat at the Zero G table, it now sits at the head!
- Carbon Drive 2.0 is a fiber shell that makes the ski stable yet flex naturally.
- Long contact surface means the Zero Gs are ultra-reliable on firm snow.
- Longer radius sidecut is ideal for the steeps to balance the edge hold.
- Carbon reinforcements in the binding area ensure charging confidence.
- 105mm width is the king of the Zero G line, perfect for soft and variable snow.
Update 2021/22: The 105 has a color update, moving to a black and orange design.

Questions & Reviews
I still ski on some old Salomon Pocket Rocket 175s when I ski in bounds, good fun, downside is they don't feel super stable at speed.
I also have a pair of Blizzard Bodacious 184s, they are amazing on big powder days for big turns but for touring they are too big and heavy.
Thinking of a pair of these (180 probably) with some ATK bindings and some mid weight boots for my touring set up. Do you think that would work for me?
The Blizzard Zero G 105 is a great an Awesome ski! It is pretty stiff, and not super forgiving, but it will take input well from a skier that likes to be on the front of their boot! It is lightweight, and will float well in deeper snow. Overall, it sounds like you are on the right track.
If you are looking for a quiver of one, the Zero G 105 could be a little wide for the spring. For further questions on skis, reach out to us at email@example.com. If you have questions on boots and bindings, try our boot fitter and binding finder tools!
Based on your satisfaction with the Zero G 95 and your daily driver of the Navis Freebird, I think the Zero G 105 will be right up your alley! It's got very similar energy and power to its narrower model, with some more float thanks to the width and a really stable feel. Truly a fun powerhouse of a ski for how lightweight it is!
Am a female, 6' and about 145lbs/67kg.
In resort I tend to ski hard and fast (top I've clocked was 113 on a the Chamonix speed cam, but that was literally bombing it straight down, so a reasonable bit faster than usual), but am pretty happy with any terrain... once i build up stamina again.
Had been looking at the blizzard 105 zero Gs after renting a pair of blizzard rustler 10s last year. Then saw amazing reviews of the Atomic Backland 107s and 98s.
At the moment I'll probably be going for a quiver of one, but may build that up. Thoughts on how this compares with the Backland and sizes (or any other suggestions)?
The Blizzard Zero G 105 is a great ski! It is quite stiff for a backcountry ski, and will hold an edge well for a powder ski in icier conditions. It has a longer turn radius, and less forgiving construction than some of the other skis that we carry.
The Atomic Backland 107 is a really solid all-around powder ski. The construction is forgiving enough to roll on edge easily, but it has enough support and energy for more variable conditions. At 107 underfoot, it will be surfy in powder.
The Atomic Backland 98 Women's Ski is more in daily driver territory than the prior 2 skis. It has a waist width that lends itself to a range of conditions, and a construction that is great in a wide range of conditions as well!

I did demo the 180cm ZG105 briefly, and it felt like the goods. But I'm curious if I should size up to the 188cm, especially if it's mostly going to be used in powder conditions.
