Reviewer Heyman

"A true all-mountain ski is as good off-piste as it is on-piste. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort in poor circumstances. It is essential that the perfect all-mountain ski performs well in all conditions."

Solid all-mountain ski for all circumstances


If you can't see where you're going and you don't know what the snowdeck lookes like, the Scott Reverse is the ski you want to be on. Whether it is carving on supersmooth groomers, ploughing through crud or chopped-up snow or skiing powder snow, the Scott Reverse performs adequately. And the amazing thing in bad visibility is that the Reverse seems to adjust to the circumstances all by itself. If you can't see, the Reverse "feels" its way around the mountain.

Bad weather ski

So the Scott Reverse performs well in bad weather. But what about good weather? That's when you reach the limit of this ski. Its performance in every kind of snow and terrain is equally good. But compromises are inevitable to such a versatile performance. And those compromises result in reachable limits equally spread over all its capabilities. That's what a good all-mountain performance is all about and therefore I reward the Reverse with a 4 star rating.

Scott about the Reverse

"The SCOTT Reverse is ideal for advanced skiers looking for a ski offering precise edge control and performance on groomers, while tackling mixed conditions. SCOTT’s proven Venturi construction and dual radius shape allows for versatility and a stable ride.", says Scott. I agree, the Reverse is solid in all condiitions and does not excel in any discipline.

Armada ARVti: is a little bit wider and performs better than the Scott Reverse in every aspect.
Scott the Ski: is more playful than the Reverse but not as stable.
Stöckli Stormrider VXL: an extremely stiff and stable all-mountain ski with Giant Slalom qualities.
