ZERO G 105

 

For too long, backcountry skiers have been stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to the their skis: To compromise on downhill performance for the sake of uphill efficiency, or to haul hundreds of extra grams underfoot to have a ski they feel confident on. The Zero G 105 solves this quandary by bringing Blizzard’s 77 years of experience building ripping skis to the backcountry touring stage. Powered by an ultra-lightweight paulownia wood core paired with an updated iteration of Blizzard’s proven Carbon Drive technology in version 3.0, the Zero G 105 feels just as at home on the skin track as it does attacking the fall line. So go ahead and earn those turns, and have some damn fun while you’re at it.

SIZE GUIDE

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SKI LENGTH

Determining the right ski length is not as simple as plugging in your height and weight. Although these are great factors to provide a starting point, there are other factors such as snow conditions, preferred terrain, ski category, and personal preference that should also be taken into account.

The general rule is for your skis to measure somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. With expert level skiers often choosing skis slightly above their head.

Once you have determined your recommended ski size range, now you need to decide if you prefer a longer ski or a shorter ski. In general shorter skis will be easier to maneuver while longer skis will be more stable. Narrower carving skis with smaller turn radiuses and full camber can be skied shorter, while wider all mountain and freeski skis with more rocker can be skied longer. Rockered skis have a shorter contact length with the snow which makes it easier to pivot and steer, however we recommend sizing up skis with a lot of rocker in order to maintain stability.Below are several reasons to help you make this decision.

GO SHORTER, CLOSER TO YOUR CHIN IF:
  • You are a beginner-intermediate level skier
  • You prefer making shorter/quicker turns
  • You are looking for a carving ski
GO LONGER, CLOSER TO THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD IF:
  • You are an advanced-expert level skier
  • You like skiing fast and making longer turns
  • You mostly ski off trial
  • You are looking at a ski with a lot of rocker

TECHNOLOGIES

CARBON REINFORCEMENTS

CARBON REINFORCEMENTS

The Carbon Drive 3.0 is empowered by two underfoot carbon reinforcements.
The carbon reinforcements are two edge-to-edge layers of bi-direction carbon fiber placed in the binding mounting areas, in order to provide:

  • IMPROVED EDGE GRIP
  • ENHANCED POWER TRANSMISSION
Carbon Drive 3.0

Carbon Drive 3.0

The Carbon Drive 3.0 is the technology upgrade of the Carbon Drive 2.0 technology: a full length 3D shaped unidirectional carbon fiber chassis running through the entire length of the ski, combined with an ultra-light pawlonia woodcore (Zero G 85, 95) or ISO/BEECH/POPPLAR core (Zero G 105): this combination guarantees a super lite construction keeping the necessary structure for performance.
Ensures optimal torsional rigidity and flex, placing the carbon in those area where it is really needed.

CARBON DRIVE 2.0 VS CARBON DRIVE 3.0
The new Carbon Drive has been placed below the fiberglass +  carbon layer
Review of the carbon chassis shape to provide less rigidity in tip and tails

Carbon Drive 3.0 Benefits:

  • IMPROVED PLAYFULNESS
  • IMPROVED STABILITY
  • GREAT EDGE HOLD
  • HIGH CONTROL
