The Armada ARV 86 Skis are an all-mountain freestyle ride with impeccable park manners. A solid ash and poplar core gives the ski a light and lively foundation, and AR Freestyle Rocker profile means fun times whether your travelling regular, switch, or shuffling out landings. If you're looking for a playful all-around hardpack ski that shines both high on the mountain and on rails and boxes, the Armada ARV 86 is your answer.
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: 5.5, Waist: 7, Tail: 6
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.
