The quintessential ski mountaineering and touring machine is back and better than ever. For years, words like reliable, stable, and versatile have been used to describe the Zero G 85. Now, with an updated carbon overlay and sidewall construction, those words are more accurate than ever. Edging into a steep and narrow chute always feels intimidating at first, but after a turn or two you'll notice that the Zero G 85 has stability and edge hold not typically found in lightweight mountaineering skis. That particular quality can be attributed to this ski's carbon overlay and sidewall construction, which lends torsional rigidity to the ski without adding any extra g's (hence the name Zero G). While most folks tend to opt for slightly (or much) wider skis when heading powder hunting, on deep days you may find yourself making a very skimo-esque® decision due to the float these skis' rockered tips and tails give them. For a select few wintery days, the sky is too clear, the snow is too creamy, and the skin tracks are too crisp to be encumbered by any extra weight. On those perfect winter days, head out with the Blizzard Zero G 85 ski and be ready for anything (with exactly zero g's of extra weight).

  • Skiing in steep terrain and on harder snow, skiers will appreciate the stable underfoot feel that the updated core and sidewall offer.
  • Blizzard altered the dimensions of the sidewall, saving weight and tuning the flex to better suit the needs of most skiers.
  • An updated Carbon Overdrive overlay strikes the perfect balance between snappy and forgiving.
  • Snazzy graphics are sure to make your ski partner green with envy.
  • Made in Austria.

Question from Karl L
 
Has anyone skied both the earlier and 2019/2020 model Zero G 85? I would appreciate a comparison of the experience.

Answer from eric
 
Hey Karl- I have skied the old version extensively and the 19/20 model a few times. While the 19/20 is supposed to have been tweaked a little I would say it skied very close, if not the same, to the previous version. Maybe a bit easier to initiate a turn but not much. Felt very similar to me.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Karl, I concur with Eric, I have a hard time describing the functional difference after skiing the new version. They are as good as ever!
