They say

The Ti is a high performance carving ski made for those who love skiing groomers. But since it’s built with a wood core and only one sheet of metal, it’s not as demanding, making it ideal for less aggressive skiers.

We say

In many ways the Revo felt initially like the odd one out of this category simply because of its width, 86mm underfoot is pretty fat to pull off a lively piste performance. Once up to speed it actually feels really solid on the edge and generates a high level of grip, particularly underfoot. This is matched up to a smooth flex which gives out a confidence inspiring ride, this makes it feel well suited to blast out long turns in trickier conditions. However, as expected, that extra width does count against it when it comes to short, grippy turns, where it feels quite slow from edge to edge and struggles to give out the razor sharp characteristics of some of its rivals on hard-pack conditions.

Tester Comments

James Allen
Would suit someone looking for a good cruising piste ski that can be taken off the side when conditions are good. Very smooth flex along its length.
John Taylor
Basically an all-mountain ski, works well in soft snow.
