The Sonic IQ is precise and easy to ski-a rare combination. Blizzard's IQ binding takes partial credit: It's affixed to rails built into the ski's core, so the energy transfer is so immediate it feels like the ski is an extension of your leg. It's lighter than a traditional binding, too, so it's a cinch to control. As for the ski, a wood-core, sidewall construction is smooth and powerful. "These respect you and demand respect back at the same time," said Sheinberg.
