If you have questions about this ski, don't hesitate to contact me.
When I first started looking for a new touring ski the Zero G was at the top of my list. At first I was a little hesitant of their tag line “the days of sacrificing downhill performance for light weight are over.” They further claim that the Zero G is the “lightest weight alpine ski construction on the market.” Usually super lightweight means sacrificing downhill performance. That is not the case with the Zero G. This ski absolutely rips on the downhill. The Zero G 108 and Cochise share the same dimensions and essentially the same rocker profiles, but the Cochise has a “double Ti construction’ with a poplar-beach core, while the Zero G 108 has no metal, and a lighter, paulownia core. So you are getting the profile of an awesome all mountain ski without the weight. The Blizzard Zero G 108 is light enough for daily ski touring, but robust enough for full days of skiing inbounds, even in steep, challenging, tracked-up terrain. Moreover, when combined with a boot like the Salomon MTN Lab and a binding like the Marker Kingpin 13 there really isn’t a situation or destination, inbounds or out where (for me, at least) this set-up would feel terribly out of place.
I am 5/11 and ski the 185 cm. The flex in my opinion would be medium to stiff. The 108 version of the Zero G has a noticeably stiffer tail then the 95. There were no changes made to the ski except color.
