Waist Width: 108
The Zero G 108 is Blizzard's widest touring ski, with a 136 mm tip and 108 mm waist. It also has a very long 27 meter sidecut radius, which is just shy of the monstrous big mountain-focused Spur's 28 meter radius. These specs combined show that while this is a lightweight touring ski (1,540 to 1,750 grams depending on length), it's also designed to be burly enough to charge big mountains. The Zero G 108 is part of Blizzard's all-new Free Touring series, which specializes in the constantly evolving ski touring scene. Flip Core technology, in which the core itself is built with rocker, rather than forced into a rockered shape during pressing, is designed to result in a chatter-free ride. Rocker Camber Rocker profile features a cambered center that is built for prime race-style turns and a rockered tip and tail intended for floating over varied conditions. Last but not least, all Free Touring skis are lightweight thanks to Blizzard's Carbon Drive technology, which utilizes a carbon frame with a paulownia wood-core construction. This technology makes these skis even lighter than Blizzard's models with Light Core Technology, therefore taking the brand into totally new territory. If you're a big fan of going up hills and not just down them, this is the best series Blizzard has to offer you. Blizzard, based in Mittersill, Austria, was founded in 1953. Its U.S. headquarters are in West Lebanon, N.H.
