They say

The Rev has a new topsheet and carries on with the award-winning construction and design, using a sandwich cap with the Powerail binding interface

We say

The 80 is focused on skiers who spend most of their time on the groomed slopes. It’s easy to use, playful and forgiving - one of those skis that feels instantly accessible and ready to work with you. Yet it can still deliver a powerful punch, with heaps of grip through the turn matched with a smooth ride that can cope with difficult snow. In deeper snow the rockered nose and smooth flex pattern enable it to handle these conditions, although it would make sense to move up to the 85 for a lot of off-piste use.

Tester Comments

Alyn Morgan
Tip engages positively. Rocker/tip profile works well in variable conditions.
Mark Jones
Great ski. Smooth flex, well judged shape and awesome on piste.
