Next Year's Gear: A Sneak Peek at 2011's Skis and Boots
2011 Blizzard M Power FS IQ
Blizzard's splash this year is what they call IQ Power: the combination of a new cambered carbon interface that runs down the length of a ski and a piston integrated into the binding. The carbon interface makes the ski torsionally rigid and powerful, while the piston damps vibration and controls rebound. The result is a ski intended to be as powerful and stable as a race ski, but that's forgiving and easy to turn.
