The Armada ARV 96 is skiing’s ultimate handyman—no matter what you throw at it, this ski will get it done. Featuring a new ash and poplar wood core for its most responsive feel yet, the ARV 96 brings its signature versatility into a new era of all-mountain freestyle performance.
AR Freestyle Rocker – Rockered tips and tails are combined with positive camber underfoot to allow the ski to charge with ease through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.
Flex Pattern (1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – Tip: 6, Waist: 7, Tail: 6.5
Pop-Lite Core – Lightweight wood is combined with a higher density, stiffer species in a horizontal laminate to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
Spin Tip – Lightweight material in the tip and tail allows for increased maneuverability for the ski when in it's in the air.
AR75 Sidewalls – Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
S7 Base – Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.
2.2mm Impact Edge – Heat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
