The sidecut on Zags is recessed backwards and the sidecut length is shorter than the on-snow contact length. If you look at that pic again, the sidecut doesn't start until underneath the car wheels (look closely at the graphic).
ScottUSA has a similar design with their Aztec/Santiago Pure/Santiago Mission. See the ski here
. See the concept explained as 'Pre Track' here
There have been a few Zag owners on the forum. Most of the reviews have been about powder/groomed performance. I want to know how well they do in bumps.
