Size tested : 178 cm
This Blizzard Zero G 95 feels very lightweight underfoot (1260 g for 178 cm). It is very pleasant in the uphill, you can’t feel it, there’s no inertia. What are its limits? In the downhill going through mounds and chop, you must be wary because they have a tendency to cross. It’s very easy and designed for skiers who aren’t looking to bust a gut. Which is kinda strange as this isn’t the case with the Blizzard Zero G 105 that we gave an award to. On the Zero G 95, if you are a good skier and are stockily built you need to focus more.
The tip is not very assertive or very present. If you put too much pressure on the tail you have the impression that it has a hinge at the back end of the heel track, it bends a little. So, this is also a positive point because the Blizzard Zero G 95 oversteers, but you lose handling. On hard snow, at sustained speed, with a little weight or pressure the grip deteriorates.
On the other hand, skidding turn initiation is super easy. The ski pivots perfectly flat, an interesting aspect for all emergency turns in a raised stance. Sequencing in difficult snow conditions where things get tough, is a little less convincing.
Standard perceived quality, but extremely good glide.
The Blizzard Zero G 95 is recommended for skiers who have an upright stance and average speed. For ski tourers who want lightness on the uphill, and agile ski to pivot. A good compromise for ski touring.
