Black Diamond Revert Skis 2013

The Black Diamond Revert Skis combine all mountain versatility with great backcountry-ready features. The combination of a 95 mm waist and a rocker/camber/rocker profile balances deep-snow performance with edge-hold on hard snow and icy descents. Black Diamond's dual torsion bow construction technique generates tons of edge grip while the 3D Sandwich construction adds durability and torsional rigidity. A paulownia wood core and skinlock tail tab add to the Revert's backcountry tourability, creating a ski that's light and maneuverable on the skin track, but charges harder than the rest on the way down.
Rocker Type
Rocker Tip and Tail with Camber Underfoot - Ample tip and tail rocker provides a ski with a shorter running length for plenty of maneuverability and easy turn initiation while camber underfoot generates tons of edge-hold on hardpack and sketchy terrain. If you want a ski that provides plenty of float in the fluff, but won't wash out on hardpack, this is the rocker profile for you.
Core
Paulownia Wood - This lightweight, fast-growing and easily-renewable wood has the strength of poplar with the weight of balsa.
Laminates
Monomer and Polymer Rubber Underfoot - By adding a layer of rubber, Black Diamond dampens the ski and smooths out the ride while better maintaining the flex profile than other laminates.
Sidewalls
Tapered ABS sidewalls
Base
High-speed sintered base
Edges
Racing Edges - These thin yet durable edges save 80 grams of weight per ski without sacrificing performance.
Additional Features
SkinLock - A stainless steel tail tab allows for secure and durable skin attachment.
Dual Torsion Bow™ - Two major ribs along the ski provide a geometric advantage that more evenly distributes the load along the entire effective edge.
Optimal Use - 60% soft snow / 40% hard snow. 30% big turns / 70% tight turns.
3D Sandwich Construction - Classic sandwich construction with ABS tapered sidewalls
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
