Revision Subtraction Review – Blister Gear Review

Recently, Blister Gear Review put a pair of Revision Subtraction powder skis through the paces in Wyoming’s Targhee mountains.  Click here to check out the review.

Blister is widely regarded as one of the most trustworthy and knowledgeable review authorities in the outdoor sporting goods industry. They’ve conducted reviews of countless pairs of skis, and are known for thorough, honest evaluations and reviews of a given ski’s strengths and weaknesses. They know their stuff, and they aren’t scared to post what’s on their mind. And you can’t buy a review from Blister – they will accept no money from the product manufacturer, not even paid advertising on their site.

So, with that, we were stoked that Blister Gear Review found the Subtraction to ride as advertised in their evaluation. Cy Whitling put in over 20 days before writing his Revision Subtraction review and found them to be a lively, poppy, playful ski that you end up spending a ton of time in the air with. Perfect! That’s what we designed them for.

Here are some of Blister Gear’s findings from their Revision Subtraction review:

“(1) It’s quick. Really quick. I spend a fair bit of time on skis in this 110-118mm waist range, and the Subtraction is the quickest I’ve been on, both on the snow and in the air. All it takes is a flick of the ankles to throw the ski sideways, and the ski is very easy to pivot and slash.

(2) On the flip side, the Subtraction is not very damp. While you can push this ski (especially in softer conditions), it wasn’t designed to straight line through bumps, small trees, and lost children in the most direct route to the bottom. Rather, it wants to pivot around and jump off everything. On that note…

(3) It’s poppy. I’ve spent more time in the air on the Subtraction than on any other ski I’ve been on. It’s incredibly easy to load the tails and pop off of any bump or roller. Once in the air, that low swing weight means shifties and spins are very easy.” – Blister Gear Review’s Cy Whitling

Revision Subtraction Wins Freeskier Magazine Editors Pick

The Revision Subtraction recently received a Freeskier Magazine Editors Pick as one of the best powder skis of 2016. Here is what they had to say in their review of the Subtraction:

“It’s like a park ski for powder days,” said one tester about the Revision Subtraction Skis. Another echoed this remark, noting, “It felt like a soft, playful park ski for the whole mountain.” Just look at that playfulness score, would ya? A five-point sidecut, poplar core and rocker-camber-rocker profile contribute to its fun and nimble character. Full-length carbon stringers with carbon reinforcements in the tip and tail provide lightweight strengthening, as well. With a 15-meter turn radius, the ski caused testers to note, “it’s user friendly and easy to turn.” Rest assured, this thing floats like a champ on the deep days.
