Similar in build to the Viva 7.6 but with a slightly narrower waist and softer flex, the 7.4 is built for a less aggressive advanced intermediate with carving skills. The 7.4 boasts Blizzard's IQ interface the slop-free integration of binding and ski that defines the line. It has a less expensive foam core than the more high-performing wood constructions, but wood stringers should give it rebound and stability. This year's model incorporates tip rocker to ease initiation. Available with binding only.
