Technical info:
Zag has been a famous freeride brand since the time when Magnus Tveito (Norwegian freerider) was at his peak. H105 is a heavy fibreglass semicap construction. It has a lot of sidecut in the waist, less so towards the tips. It stands out for having a very stiff back ski and a lot of camber. The rocker and taper in the front start at very different points. Completely flat back ski.

On snow:
Hang tight! This ski likes it rough, even when you don´t want it to. You need to work to keep your position, H105 is very nervous. We suspect that this is due to the stiff tail without any taper. It is easy to turn, but perhaps not the way you expect it to. Everyone in the test team struggled to get accustomed to this model. Give it a try before you buy it, perhaps you are able to crack the code. Suits those who like a stiff, flat back ski.
