Scott – Reverse
Continuing in the range, and continuing as one of our picks, especially given Scott’s recent price falls. The Reverse has Scott’s almost unique Venturi Tip, first seen on the Crusade about six seasons ago. Whether it truly forces air under the ski at high speed is open to question, but it doesn’t detract from a very well-controlled stiffish flex derived from a complex multi-wood core with metal laminates. So there’s plenty of beef to deliver edge control at speed, along with a tight-turning shape to allow hard-turners to get stuck in. Testers comment on how lively the Reverse is, encouraging you to play around with turn shapes. Once it’s in softer snow there’s enough rocker to work easier than a fully cambered ski – say something like the Kastle MX84 – which makes the Reverse more of a true all-mountain ski. We’d still class it as piste biased because it’s the onpiste performance which stands out, but it really can deliver anywhere you’ll go.
