Like to charge hard all the time, even when it's not "hero snow?" Consider the Black Diamond
Zealot, a super-damp big mountain gun that's made multiple appearances on Freeskiing and Freeride World Tour podiums in its short lifespan. BD keeps the weight down by using a lightweight Paulownia core, and builds in high speed stability by inserting machined Titanal sheets over the wood. This ski crushes it on ice, frozen avy debris, heinous mank, and everything in between - even good snow!
Rocker tip and Semi-Rocker tail for forgiveness, balance, and agile turning
110 mm waist and underfoot camber for powerful skiing on firm snow and mank
3D CNC Wood Core - Ultra lightweight Paulownia wood core
3D Metal Sandwich with Titanal, paulownia wood core and ABS tapered sidewalls for race-like construction without the weight
Formula One Technology with three ribs and Torsion Box Construction for maximum torsional stiffness
Biaxial Fiberglass, Unidirectional Fiberglass and +/-45˚ Fiberglass reinforcement
High Speed Sintered Base
Rubber dampening strips over edges
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
