    This Zealot will make you a believer.

    Without getting preachy, it's hard not to tout the greatness of the all-mountain Black Diamond Zealot Ski. This husky rockered ski floats through pow, rails down steeps, and wiggles through trees like something possessed. But with a sturdy wood core and tough sandwich-sidewall construction, it also carves on firm days or on hardpack chutes. A large-turn radius and Titanal reinforcement keeps the chatter down on blazing-hot straight-runs. The top-of-the-line All Mountain Series ski, the Zealot is one fired-up stick.

    • ABS sidewalls
    • Paulownia 3D CNC wood core

    versatile, all mountain ski

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Wow, I am impressed with the zealot. It handles so well in the steep hard packed, crud and powder. The ski is responsive, and the chatter is minimal at high speeds. Bringing these skis around on couloirs in Telluride, Colorado was amazing. They are light and nearly effortless to ski if you enjoy telemark turns in all types of conditions. The Zealot is my ski of choice.

    Not for softies.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    If you want to bounce around the mountain, popping wheelies and high-fivin' the bros after every hit , this ski is not for you. If you ski fast and with something to prove, you might want to look into this bad boy. The Zealot is a bonafide charger.

    I've now put nearly 40 days on this ski (182 version] and although I still think it is a great charger and an awesome everyday ski (if you live where it snows regularly), I'm a bit surprised by the shoddy construction. I've owned Black Diamond skis for almost a decade now and currently ski on this Zealot, the older green ones, and a pair of Amperages. BD went to vertical sidewall construction this year and although that is supposed to make the skis more durable, these Zealots are falling apart quickly. The topsheet is cracked and chipping off near the edges and up near the shovel and I have a number of small indentations around the top of the sidewalls (not base). I ski hard, but have never had problems like this with previous BD skis, even after years, and literally hundreds of days, of use. Maybe its the new factory (?), maybe its the new construction, I don't know. But the quality has certainly changed this year, for the worse.



    I still give the skis four stars because they kick @$$, but I doubt I'll get more than a year out of this particular pair.

    Unanswered Question

    Hey, looking at getting a pair of these and putting some Atomic Trackers on them, wondering if the 100mm Tracker would work? You guys have 115mm ones but would prefer them narrower if possible.

    I'm looking at these skis for use as a big...

    I'm looking at these skis for use as a big mountain ski in switzerland and colorado. Might do some touring on them. I'm 5'11, 175, strong skier. Solid 3+, would consider myself high advanced low expert. Would the 192 cm length be too much ski for me?

    Best Answer

    I skied the 190 something version of these years ago and it was a lot of ski. From what I hear they have changed the way the ski was made and its a lot more friendly, still can charge just a bit easier to turn. The 192 with all the rocker is probably more like a upper 180cm so I would say go for it. It might be tough at first if you have not skied a ski that long but, eventually you will go into it. Definitely will find yourself skiing faster as a ski with that length shines with a bit more speed. Hope this helps.
