A true backcountry tool that's also light and powerful - the Zero G from Blizzard is fun to ski, responsive and super versatile, providing expert freeriders the chance to maximise their performance in any condition whilst keeping the weight low enough to enjoy walking back up again.
On-piste they feel smooth and edge grip is good - you'd be happy just staying frontside all day, especially in softer snow conditions. Take them into powder and the 95mm waist feels just right for ripping it up at lower and medium pace.
There's a nice balance with these skis and Blizzard seems to have designed something that would suit really experienced expert skiers but could also forgive a less technical able one, should they make the odd mistake here or there.
The paulownia wood core and 'carbon fibre frame' add a solid bit of construction to the ski, pushing up the price point a little, but ensuring performance remains right up there with what you'd expect from a true freeride ski.
A great ski for someone who is getting into freeride skiing and wants to start touring into the backcountry too.
