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.

  • Rocker tip and semi-rocker tail
  • Formula One 3D metal sandwich with Titanal
  • ABS sidewalls
  • Paulownia 3D CNC wood core
  • 110-millimeter waist

Not for softies.

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.

All sandwich constructed skis do this. It doesn't look that great, but its purely cosmetic.
