The Blizzard Zero G 105 Skis are a brand new model replacing the venerated Zero G 108. Whereas the 108 used the Cochise mold and simply substituted lighter construction, the 105 was designed from the ground up as a purpose-built touring ski. Our test 180's came in at 1503 grams per ski, over 150 grams lighter than the 108 in a 178 length. Other changes of note include less Carbon Drive coverage and shorter sidewalls, giving the ski a slightly more rounded flex and making turn initiation more reliable in variable snow. If you loved the Zero G 108 but are looking for something a bit lighter and better suited to long days on the skintrack, the new Zero G 105 is probably it.
