Top Frontside Skis 2013: Head Rev 85 Pro

Versatility for go-anywhere-on-the-mountain fun



HEAD REV 85 PRO
Part of an all new line of technical, all-mountain skis from Head, the Rev 85 Pro—like most of the skis in this collection—employs a combination of rocker and camber for solid performance in all snow conditions, as well as a progressive sidecut meant to make turn initiation easier and improve edging in the turn. This is a versatile ski—able to rip on groomers, but with a fat tip that gives it some float in softer snow. Ski it aggressively on speedy, giant slalom-style turns, or relax and let the Rev 85 do its thing.

Best For: All-mountain explorers who love ripping it on groomers.
Overall: 3.54 | Carving/Edging: 3.54 | Stability: 3.62
Length (cm): 163,170,177,184
Tip/Waist/Tail (mm): 131/85/113 (@ 170)
$1,050 (with bindings); head.com (on sale for $900 at evo.com)
