The 95 is the flagship touring width of the new Zero G series. Designed with heaps of secret experience building skis for other brands, these are no introductory models. A unique 3D fiber layer called Carbon Drive spans the entire ski, offering torsional rigidity and stability throughout. Full-length sidewalls offer some durability and dampness to the ultralight Paulownia wood core. Camber underfoot with mild tip and tail rocker make for mild high-performance skiing. For more hardcore types, check out the 85.
Sidewall construction adds rock protection and edge penetration to a lightweight platform.
Unique unidirectional Carbon Drive covers the ski in stiffness and delivers power to the edges.
Paulownia wood core is the gold standard for lightweight skis with good strength and flex.
Zero G refers to the implicit protest against gravity while 95 refers to the width, in millimeters.
Update 2018/19: The ZeroG 95 got a graphics update only.
Hey Ollie! Also, I should point out that Scarpa doesn't recommend the Alien RS on anything wider than 85mm at the waist. There is more than enough power behind the boot to drive a ski that wide but they don't like the idea of it being on a ski so "huge."
Any thoughts on pairing this ski with the Sportiva Spitfire 2.1 boot? I’m 6’5”, 170, moderate skier, never toured or skied uphill before, looking for a good first setup. Would 178 be a good length, or do you think I should bump up to 185? Thanks!
