Returning unchanged for 2018, the carbon-infused Zero G 108 remains a test favorite for its power and agility—especially given its very tourable weight. Testers found it could make turns of any shape, but preferred longer arcs and higher speeds. With just enough rocker tip and tail, soft snow performance was solid, but what set the Zero G apart was its handling of mixed conditions and hardpack: “steady and damp,” one tester commented.
