A Risk Reversal is similar to a Combo or Synthetic Long Stock strategy and involves going Long of a Call Option and Short a put.

The difference between risk reversals and Combo strategies is that the former uses Out Of The Money Options (both call and put sides). Usually this is done to take advantage of Volatility skew (higher lower Implied Volatility of Options at different strike prices).
