Black Diamond redesigned its entire 2008 ski lineup. Full wood cores throughout provide exceptional snap and dampness. The Zealot knows one speed: hell-bent.

Props

An AK-style charger. Give this monster lots of space and gradient.

Gripes

Unwieldy at low speeds and anything tighter-than-super-G turns.

Tester's Take

"BD has found a perfect ski construction for the ripping skier." —Neil Beidleman
