Topping the Vision women’s line from Fischer the Zephyr’s are light but aggressive, feminine but powerful. They are aimed at the advanced to expert woman who loves to lay down some serious carves on piste. The Zephyr’s are very much shaped like a slalom ski so they are very grippy and reassuring on icy pistes, the sandwich construction really biting into firm hardpack and giving the skier lots of feedback. As it is aimed at women the ski has been lightened up somewhat so there is a light Flowflex plate which is much less dynamic than those fitted to the unisex skis, this is fine for the advanced skier and expert who doesn’t feel like working too hard- for those of you who do appreciate more race-bred performance you may want to stick with the unisex ski instead.
The Zephry non the less is a most lively pair of skis for the advanced to expert female skier and you may be pleasantly surprised at the amount of control, grip, fun and exhiliration you will gain from skiing a nippy pair of skis such as these in comaprison to a pair of flatulent twin-tips.
4/ 5 Would be higher if there was a slightly beefier plate underfoot.
