In full disclosure, we tested the Reverse three days after a storm, on the groomers with the other carvers in the group. The consensus? "It fits more on the All-Mountain side of things and is best for traveling in and out of groomed and soft snow conditions," Stoeger explained. "That said, it's really easy to skid and smear." "It was fun in the crud and the bumps, but lacks energy and snap on the corduroy,” Witman said. “It carves better than some All-Mountain skis but has a wider feel to it." In a 176-centimeter length, the Reverse has an 87-millimeter waist and a 15-meter turning radius. A Giant Slalom race construction includes sandwich sidewalls with a top and bottom layer of Titanal. The Dual Radius Design creates a larger radius section in the tip and tighter elsewhere. Lastly, the Venturi-Tip Rocker decreases surface pressure, so the Reverse will handle better in soft snow.
