Black Diamond has slightly re-tooled the Zealots for this year, it has the same stiff flex, minimal sidecut, and 110mm waist (135-110-123 in the 182cm) as the previous model, but BD added a long, low rise, rockered tip that really makes this ski stand out. The stiff flex and minimal sidecut charge through crud, and the rockered tip keeps the ski on top of heavy slush and other soft snow. It skis more like a traditional big mountain ski compared to the Megawatt and Justice, but the rockered tip eliminates any hookiness in variable snow or crust and keeps it on top of the powder.


110 mm waist and underfoot camber for powerful skiing on firm snow and mank

Rocker tip and Semi-Rocker tail for forgiveness, balance, and agile turning

Designed for higher speeds and longer turns than the AMPerage, more soft-snow oriented than the Verdict

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


Optimal use: 50% soft snow / 50% hard snow


Available in 182cm and 192cm




135-110-123 mm (182cm)
