Technical info:
G3 has adopted carbon to the full, and the new Zenoxide-series has a cap construction that gives a very light ski. Like the other models from the same brand, the ski is stiff, especially at the back. It has a low rocker in the front and the back ski is flat. While the turning radius is long in the back, it´s shorter in the front. Unlike many of the other skis in the test, there is little width difference between the front and back ski.

On snow:
Congratulations to the G3 team! They have managed to create a very light ski without letting go of the solid feel that characterizes the brand. The use of rocker and taper has made the G3 ski easier to maneuverer, at the same time as they have maintained the floatation and stability at speed. It works on everything from crust to powder. NB! Zenoxide C 105 might be too stiff for many, and we doubt that playful skis will be G3´s trademark in the near future. But if you want a 100% reliable ski that is also super light, then this is a great option.
