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.
