Pro What’s good for the expert rarely suits the Aspiring Expert, but here’s an exception. The 7400 features the same unique IQ interface that Blizzard employs on high-end skis like the CMX Pro. Testers enjoyed its quickness and might have thought it would be too demanding for less-skilled skiers. But if learning how to get a ski on edge is an intermediate’s gateway to carved turns, then an interface that helps them do it—by improving leverage—is all the better. The 7400 still gets a sturdy wood core, but it’s reinforced with snappy carbon and fiberglass instead of metal. And its waist provides a wide, comfortable platform for easy balance and decent powder performance. "Light, fun, full of energy," said Lewis. "It’ll help novices learn to carve." Con One of the least favorite in bumps.
