Watch your waistline! It’s starting to creep up with the 108, which of course means you enjoy eating a lot of powder. Probably for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Maybe even fourth meal. If you can’t get enough of the soft stuff, and want a ski to point right down it, check out the Zero G 108. Blizzard used the same impressive Carbon Drive construction as the other Zero Gs, but pushed out the dimensions for your floating pleasure. And just in case you have to cross some *gasp* hard snow on the day, the sandwich construction with a full ABS sidewall will hold an edge. This is a ski you could safely ski at a resort, but somehow is light enough for off-the-map adventures. Take the backcountry skiing to the next level with the Zero G 108.
- Carbon Drive is a uni-directional fiber formed into a 3D mold that adds performance.
- Additional directional fiber glass layers make the ski stronger and relatively damp.
- Rocker design helps keep the wide-yet-tapered tip up above yet on the right track.
- Sandwich Compound sidewall is an ABS liner that smooths turns and helps stop rocks.
- Flip Core is a unique manufacturing process that adds camber without undue force.
Update 2018/19: Blizzard updated the graphics but the ski remains the same.

Questions & Reviews
I've got a buddy who currently has these. He's skiing them with the Backland Carbon boots (the one's with the tongues!!, purchased from you guys). He's been looking for something with a more forgiving flex and shorter radius, but still around that 100mm waist (maybe up to 108mm although that seems on the fatter side of what's required). What would you guys recommend from your line up?
Despite the width, they have become a daily driver for me - they excel in the soft stuff, but are still very capable on firm snow thanks to the relatively minimal sidecut. The flex pattern feels just right, especially in comparison to the other ZeroG offerings, which can feel super stiff at times.
Grab a pair of these if you want a versatile, high-performance (read: fast) ski that is not too heavy to take on big days.
They do like to be driven from the front of the boot and will punish laziness, but in a ski I rarely take on more than a 2000m day I consider this a fun virtue rather than a downside. They also feel a little dead at low, meadow skipping speeds, but again, I think that's fun because I'd rather ski fast anyway. YMMV
