Any thoughts from epicskiers who have tried these skis at 170/172 cms?
I'm light 150lbs, older, former ski instructor...
I will chime in:
Stability: REV 85 wants to be on edge more, seems more aggressive in the turn. LX is quieter, more damp, bigger feeling radius, not as active, a touch more stable.
Forgiveness: REV 85 is pretty forgiving. Bit sweet spot, not a stiff ski. LX82 very forgiving.
Snow feel; Both are damp, REV 85 has a bit more pop in the tail, LX82 more of a cruiser energy level. LX82 feels a bit more quiet and refined.
Bump performance: REV 85 has a lot of sidecut for bumps, LX82 is better here.
Soft snow: the tip of the REV seems surfier, but the LX82 is less hooky.
Hard Snow: if you like a more active ride edge to edge, finishing the turn more powerfully, REV 85. Nice edge grip, bit more mellow tip and tail: LX82.
I'm in a quandary... should I just keep my Rev Pro 85s or move to the LX82 or 92? I (intermediate-advanced, 66 years old, 185 lbs, 5'9" not too aggressive) ski mostly piste in the East (70%) (off piste: 25-30%) but always want a ski that can handle more varied conditions in the West when I travel there a couple of times a year... and I don't like to rent skis for this purpose. Often, for example, I will get up in the morning at Snowmass and see there is a coating of 6" or so of new snow and want something to deal with it that is stable and able to cut through the chopped up conditions. Question: Rev Pro 85 or LX 82 or 92? Thanks for your advice.
