2013 Head REV 105

Posted

Pros: Not for the chargers

Cons: Too turny for some

 

Review:

One of the more playful 105 waisted skis. If you love the Cochise/Katana type skis, this is not the ski for you but if you don't like the (minimum) speed limits that those skis require, try the REV. The REV 105 is a great playful big mountain skis for those who either don't want a charging ski or a big floppy town tip. I think Head will do very well with this ski and a lot of people will enjoy it.
