The Adret 81 is the premium, super lightweight touring option from Zag, an eco-responsible freeride specialist based in Chamonix. The 2018 Zag Adret 81 gives the best weight/performance ratio on the market, weighing less than 1kg you are sure to glide up the mountain. Whether you’re looking for a mountaineering ski or need a super lightweight ski for hut to hut tours such as the Haute Route, what better ski to go for than one that was actually inspired and designed in Chamonix!
The Adret 81 uses a full paulownia wood core, which has supreme lightness and stability, but is also an eco-conscious decision. Paulownia is an extremely fast growing tree that has been meticulously grown in plantations for hundreds of years, so there is no need for deforestation. The predictable and lively flex that you inherently get from a full woodcore ski is backed up by a carbon/Kevlar layer; this layer creates a smooth and stable ride that packs some power whilst keeping the weight to a minimum.
The cap construction of the ski continues the light and lively theme, with a low swing weight and effortless initiation there is no better construction to aid you in jump turning your way down the tightest of couloirs.
The Zag Adret’s profile is ideal for skiing on hardpack conditions; a strong amount of camber underfoot promotes its solidity when carving and gives a springy like sensation, to bounce you from turn to turn. The camber is complimented by tip rocker for improved float in powder as well improving its ability to handle choppy and slushy terrain.
The last thing you want on a long tour is unnecessary weight; something the 2018 Zag Adret 81 certainly doesn’t have. With an unmatched weight to performance ratio the Adret 81 allows you to approach every descent with the maximum amount of energy and confidence, giving a truly uncompromised enjoyable experience. Perfect for all skiers who want the highest quality product; it has been tried and tested by skiers, for skiers.
Zag Skis have been around since 2002, currently based in Chamonix they are able to regularly test and develop their products, ensuring every product is the best it possibly can be. As a relatively small company whose products are all designed and tested in the mountains you can be assured of supreme quality in this innovative and exclusive brand.
