zai for Moncler is a high-performance all-mountain ski with a soul from inside the mountains. The master craftsmen of the zai manufactory skilfully combine dark slate with bog oak, hereby connecting the damping properties of stone with the flexibility of wood. The structure of the stone is broken up by the wood in the front and end part of the ski. Bog oak is a stable wood fibre with a dark texture, which visually blends in with the slate and gives the ski the necessary flexibility. The end product radiates simplicity and at the same time stands out with its excellent skiing performance.
After launching a world premiere with zai stone in winter 2019/20, in 2020, the zai team collaborated with Moncler and created a ski by implementing the same technology. Like zai stone, zai for Moncler is mainly made of slate, carbon wood and steel. Thanks to the combination with the carrier material, the slate becomes stable to pressure and damping, and it remains bendable. The result is an easily carving ski with smooth running and excellent grip.
The zai transmission system offers optimised power transmission through the combination of the ski’s geometry, its camber and its binding position. Together with ski sticks and a zai ski bag, the zai for Moncler can be purchased exclusively in selected Moncler stores.
