As a reformulated version of the Attack, the Zero G Race ski has a great legacy. It remains a stiff racing plank with a traditional profile and superior edge hold. That’s surprising because Blizzard managed to shave about 100 grams off the weight, making it a superior uphill ski as well. Built with the same Carbon Drive construction found in the larger Zero G skis, the Race version also has a high torsional rigidity. Blizzard switched to the ubiquitous Paulownia wood core, but kept the Isocore stringers to stiffen the ride. The Zero G Race has an upturned semi-square tip in an attempt to maximize float while keeping the precision steering of pointier skis. At the new weight, the new Blizzard race ski is competitive with the best of ‘em.

  • Carbon Drive is a 3D shaping of uni-directional fiber for multi-directional rigidity.
  • Traditional camber underfoot with razor steel edges offer impressive edge hold.
  • Ultralight Paulownia wood core has stiffening Isocore stringers that run the length.
  • Slotted tip notch is the fastest way to get skins on and off during transitions.

Question from Seth Davis
 
Has anyone skied this ski? I like my Zero G 95s. Wondering how the Zero G Race skis?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Seth. They rip. The turn shape is incredibly versatile and the reason why I like them so much is because they handle like "real" skis through chunky terrain. Most race skis get bossed around and require a lot of attention to pilot, these still do but you can ignore some subtleties in the terrain that you'd otherwise be paying attention to. The running edge is really long though and it's at the expense of tip rocker, so it makes an awesome race and training ski but it's not my first pick at an adventure ski. If you like your Zero G 95s you'd like these. Similar handling but in a smaller package. After trying a handful of different race skis, this takes the gold as one of my favorite race skis... the Ski Trab Gara Aero WC on the other hand takes the gold as my favorite ski ever though, race ski or not. Takes the "handles like a real ski" characteristic to a whole other level and it would make a great adventure ski because there's enough tip rocker to float in soft or chunky snow.

Most other race skis are like riding a hardtail MTB down a techy descent. You've gotta be attentive and on top of it to make it down any challenging snow (notice I didn't say terrain, these skis do really well in challenging terrain if the snow if manageable). The Zero G Race is like riding that same descent on a short travel full suspension bike. The Trab is like riding that same descent on a burly enduro bike...except the catch is that all of these theoretical bikes weigh exactly the same.
