Top Frontside Skis 2013: Head Rev 85 Pro

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

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.
