When you’re high in the alpine, picking your way through consequential terrain, having reliable partners and equipment is a must. For years, the Zero G line has been a staple of legendary ski mountaineers and has proven itself in some of the most demanding places in the world. Now back and better than ever, the Zero G 85 seeks to keep what made it synonymous with durability and razer-like edge grip, while making it less demanding in other types of conditions. Blizzard achieved this by refining the Carbon Drive laminate, which is a carbon overlay that allows for precise control of torsional and longitudinal stiffness. Combine this with an intelligent 3D construction, carbon-reinforced mounting plate, and partial sidewall, you get another Blizzard Zero G 85 that lives up to its name. That is, maximum performance with zero grams of unnecessary weight.

  • Carbon Drive 3.0 laminate allows for the flex to be fine-tuned.
  • 3D milling provides torsional rigidity while keeping weight down.
  • Long sidecut makes the ski less catchy in variable snow.
  • Carbon-reinforced mounting plate helps with durability and binding retention.

Question from Jake
 
How exactly did Blizzard change this ski from previous year's versions?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jake, Blizzard redid the "Carbon Drive" layup which changed the personality significantly. Noticeably friendlier, the skis are quicker and less menacing when the snow gets difficult. Just plain fun in smooth snow.
