Before this season, the Zealot skied with the agility of an oak door. Then BD added tip rocker. What a change. It remains a fast, powerful ski that prefers super-G turns, but now it’s easy to steer and nimble enough to whip around through trees and cliff bands. plus: Stiff tails give constant feedback
and end-of-turn support. minus: Even with the tip rocker, these are demanding skis.
