"It skis narrower than it looks," Zawacki said of the REV 85 Pro. "Feels silky from edge-to-edge and has great stability. It also has lots of rebound when loaded." Testers gave this Head ski high scores for carving, praising its hard snow performance and recommending it as a one-ski quiver for eastern skiers. Design features include ERA 3.0 technology, which combines tip rocker with vibration-absorbing Intellifibers in the tip plus a progressive radius for better edge contact and soft snow performance. A sandwich cap combines a World Cup sandwich construction with a cap that wraps over the tops of the sidewall. The REV 85 Pro is available with or without an edge-grip enhancing PowerRail plate. "It's lots of fun on packed snow, but a little work in chopped up powder and crud," Bills said. "Best for skiers who spend most of their time on frontside groomers."
