Discover our UBAC touring skis, the range that represents the best of what ZAG knows how to do in the ski touring market. Designed for ski tourers looking for versatile, lightweight, high-performing skis to traverse the pristine mountain terrain. Developed in collaboration with our R&D department and our mountain guide ambassadors, the skis in this range will preserve your legs when climbing thanks to their low weight and will provide you unique gliding sensations on the way down.
The UBAC 89 is the latest model to join the UBAC family. A variation of its big brother the UBAC 95, this model with 89mm underfoot stands out for its excellent grip on hard snow. Ideal for ski tourers looking for a very versatile ski that performs well in the most difficult snow conditions. With moderate rocker, it will also delight beginner touring skiers: a very good transition ski for alpine skiers wishing to start touring. An emblematic ski since its entry on the market, the UBAC 95 is the all-purpose touring ski. Developed with the help of mountain guides in Chamonix, this ski ensures comfort and skiability. Its light weight for its width and its intuitiveness will make it your ally in all your outings of the season, whatever the snow conditions. Its big brother, the UBAC 102, is a bodybuilded version of the 95: stiffer in flex and torsion, wider ski and with bigger rockers. This ski has been designed to satisfy the most demanding freeriders who want to equip themselves with light but ultra high-performing touring skis. These powerful skis reveal all their capabilities at high speed! These three models: UBAC 89, UBAC 95 and UBAC 102 are of course declined in Lady version with shapes and flex adapted to the female gender. The BAKAN (translation of storm in Savoyard dialect) is an outstanding ski in this range. These 112mm will give you an incredible performance in deep snow. Its pronounced 5 point shape makes it an ultra intuitive ski and a weapon for slaloming in the forest!
Our UBAC ski range has been developed in our prototyping workshop in Chamonix : the ZAGLAB. Since 2015 and the creation of this workshop we can push the development of each ski much further. Indeed we can build prototypes in a very reduced space of time: 3 to 4 days between manufacturing and testing. This reactivity is a real asset that we want to put to good use for our customers by developing skis that are always more intuitive and efficient. In addition, with the ZAGREEN program we are committed to minimizing the impact of our activity. For example, we now use only recycled steel edges in our UBAC range, FSC-certified wood cores (respecting procedures guaranteeing sustainable forest management) and recycled scrap base.
In addition to our UBAC touring skis, you can find our skins made in partnership with the Swiss brand POMOCA. Perfectly adapted to our ski models, this mix skin of mohair and nylon arrives already cuted and ready to use. They are the essential accessories to complete your ski touring pack.
