Black Diamond Zealot Ski - Men's: Part big-mountain gun, part semi-rockered play ski, the redesigned Black Diamond Zealot has already made multiple appearances on the Freeskiing and Freeride World Tour podiums. This ultra-damp ski is built using our new 3D Metal Sandwich construction-a sidewall-style layup with machined Titanal sheets for ultimate stability at speed. A lightweight paulownia wood core prevents unseemly weight gain, while a rockered tip and semi-rockered tail make direction changes completely intuitive.
•Designed for higher speeds and longer turns than the AMPerage, more soft-snow oriented than the Verdict.
•Formula One Technology with three ribs and Torsion Box Construction for maximum torsional stiffness.
•Optimal use: 50% soft snow / 50% hard snow
The Black Diamond Zealot Skis. A high-performance fat ski with loads of snap, the Zealot is ideal for big-mountain steeps and charging resort laps.
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.
Have you ever wondered how skiers in the movies manage to hold a course as they bomb down some razor-thin line on an unforgiving Alaskan mountain? The Zealot is Black Diamond's answer: it's a hard-core big-mountain ripper. This ultra-damp ski has underfoot camber that will translate to powerful skiing on firm snow, but with a 110mm waist and a wider turn radius, the Zealot will also give you stability and power on soft snow.
Designed for higher speeds and longer turns than the AMPerage and more soft-snow oriented than the Verdict, the Zealot is equipped with playful Rocker tip and Semi-Rocker tail for forgiveness, balance and agile turning in any condition.A speed demon, this ski is still surprisingly light weight with 3D Metal Sandwich construction, Titanal, paulownia wood core and ABS tapered sidewalls. Formula One Technology with three ribs and Torsion Box Construction give the Zealot maximum torsional rigidity.
Optimal use: 50% soft snow / 50% hard snow
