Blizzard IQon 8400 (2008)

Blizzard IQon 8400 (2008)

Wider skis usually sacrifice edge-grip. Not the 8400, which, despite an 84-mm waist, topped the category for Hard-Snow Grip. That’s a testament to Blizzard’s unique IQ binding interface, which grips the binding tightly to the ski in a seamless, slop-free connection. The result is a system that instantly transmits skier input to the edge. Sturdy wood-core construction and two sheets of metal give it a pleasing heft. "Very responsive and flexible," said Rifkin.

Best For

Not For
