Reviewer Steef

"Versatility is crucial. I want to cover the whole mountain on the same day. Stability and camber for carving on piste, rocker for float off-piste, agility and playfulness are key factors for my perfect all-mountain ski."

Fine all-mountain ski


The Head REV 85 Pro is a friendly all-mountain ski. Easy and smooth handling with good dampening. Enough grip for nice carving turns, but for speeding it's a bit too soft resulting in less convincing and searching behaviour. But who cares if you like playing around on and off-piste, dealing with chopped up snow, bumps and some fresh powder. A 4 star rating for the playfulness.

Mr. Everybody's friend

Because the ski is so easy to handle, before you know it you are leaving the prepared slopes and find yourself exploring the disordered parts, having fun in chopped-up snow and handling bumps with ease. All-mountain like it should be. The other side of being so friendly, is the lack of stiffness for demanding and powerful skiers, who are looking for an all-mountain ski with more race aspirations. Then you have to look for the Elan Amphibio 12, or the Atomic Nomad S Temper Ti.

Head about the REV 85 Pro

"Either a freerider who also likes to carve, or a carver who likes to freeride every now and then, this is your ski", says Head. If it makes you a better skier I don't know, but with the very smooth handling you can have indeed a lot of fun freeriding.

Salomon Quest 98: a rival which is better in deep powder.
Armada TST: the best all-mountain alternative in my opinion.
Elan Amphibio 12: better on groomed slopes.
