As backcountry skiers, G3 focused on simplicity and efficiency to go further and do more in the mountains. With that same mindset G3 loaded the ZED with a full yet simplistic feature set that saves valuable weight and reliably has your back when you’re deep in the mountains. Optimal toe elasticity maximizes energy absorption . 10mm range of forward pressure for consistent release. Wide freeride mount for power transfer & pull-out resistance. Optional add-on brake is easy to install/uninstall. Compatible with the ION Crampon for icy ascents.
