Waist Width: 85
The Zero G 85 W is Blizzard's only women's-specific touring ski, offering a design intended for chicks who rip both up and down the mountain. It's relatively skinny with a 116 mm tip and 85 mm waist, and super lightweight, weighing in between 945 and 1,255 grams depending on length. For all the ladies out there who want to bag as many peaks no matter what it takes, this is the best ski Blizzard has to offer you. The Zero G 85 W 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. Â¬ Blizzard, based in Mittersill, Austria, was founded in 1953.
