How's the Elan Amphibio 82 w/ELX 12 compared to Head Rev Pro 80 ski?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm considering both the Elan Amphibio 82 w/ELX 12 and the Head Rev Pro 80 skis. I'm looking for the best carving edge ski on groomed slopes and the ski that also can better perform in crud and in smaller amounts of powder (not deep powder). Appreciate you assistance. Thanks.

Skills? weight? height???

 

Rev 85 compared to amphibio 88: 88 has way more snap and is way more fun to carve and has way more edge grip... But 85 is easier in bumps and fresh snow...

I'm advanced skier, 5'11, 198 pounds. I skied Tremblant and throughout VT. Sure, I like a great carving ski on groomed trails, and also  great with some fresh powder snow, too.. I don't care about the fastest ski, a more moderate to fast ski is adequate for me.

Forget the rev 85!

Go at Max Ski Service at Tremblant village and buy a pair of Fischer Motive 86! Or go at "La Shop" in St-Sauveur and buy a pair of Brahma or even Experience 88 and you will be happy!

how's the Motive 86 in ice bumps?   Looking to replace her 2012 Mavens for Sutton/Bromont/Orford use.   As in 'yes they need to be tree skis but there ain't no powder in them trees'.

They are quite nice! They are snappy and light but somehow damp and really nice carver for 86 mm skis! I really like their flex...Stiff but not overstiff...

Maybe in very icy bumps, I would have prefer something around 72 mm but then, the motive are more versatile...
