Black Diamond Zealot
Here's what other sites are saying:
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 Black Diamonds 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.
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.

Moving to traditional sidewall and sandwich construction, the Black Diamond Zealot Ski sets a new standard for damp, big mountain performance. The Zealot is poised to become your do-it-all fat ski. At 110 mm underfoot, the Zealot remains relatively agile for a big ski, but it is not for the faint of thigh. Big boots and a charging attitude complement the Zealot nicely. Black Diamond's new Titanal construction delivers a damp, confident ride in a wide variety of conditions including powder and mixed snow, making the Zealot a great ski for resort powder days. The rockered tip keeps you out of trouble when the snow gets deep or funky, and the semi-rockered tails still deliver on firm snow. The Black Diamond Zealot Skis have graced the podium at more than one freeride ski event. You will be ready to charge in bounds and out.
