Product Info

The Head REV 85 Pro Skis rail the groomed like the 6:45 express train from Innsbruck to Salzberg, and still has a touch of tip rocker to kill it in soft snow. Paired with the Head PRD 12 Wide 88 Bindings, this package is ideal for advanced inbounds skiers who spend the majority of their time on prepared snow but aren't afraid to venture out beyond the ropes when the powder calls.

Comments about Head REV 85 Pro Skis + PRD 12 Wide 88 Bindings 2013:

I demoed these on 3/14/13 after a 5 day warm-up in temp, so conditions were not the best, this ski loves to go fast and fly down the mountain. Just point the ski downhill and these will take you there in a hurry! This is my first time with Head skis and I'm very impressed. Not for beginners and they do not like short turns. Med-wide arcs and you'll do great.

        Comments about Head REV 85 Pro Skis + PRD 12 Wide 88 Bindings 2013:

        These skis are a whole lot of fun in varied terrain resort skiing. I recently used them in mixed spring skiing and they happily beat through crusty stuff and slush with ease. I wouldn't want to try and win a GS race on them, but nor do I expect them to operate this way. I found them very playful and responsive. I would say they are quick turning with a short radius. You just want to turn-turn-turn on these things. Great in-bounds boards.
