The 7.2 has the same IQ interface as the rest of the line, which instantly communicates skier input to the edge of the ski, but with foam core that' s designed to be light and easy. It' s designed for intermediates who need some hand-holding, which means it should be easy to skid turns for those who haven' t learned how to carve. It still has vertical sidewalls and Blizzard' s Power Frame construction, which should translate to a good value. (Most skis at this price point are cap constructions.) Sold with binding.
