After a few years hiatus, the Armada ARW 116 VJJ Skis are back with a vengeance, good news for ripping ladies everywhere! With a fat 116mm waist, hefty freestyle rocker and beveled smear tech tips and tails, these pow surfers are built to slash, smear, pivot and float effortlessly in soft snow. Armada s lightweight Poplar Ash core makes the ski lively and maneuverable without compromising stability on hard pack, meaning you can tear back down the lift for another lap through the deep stuff ASAP.
AR Freestyle Rocker – Rockered tips and tails are combined with positve camber under foot 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
Smear Tech – A 3D beveled base in the tip and tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self centering in deep snow and un-catchable on take offs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left or right.
Poplar Ash Core – Lightweight Poplar is combined with higher density full length Ash stringers to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
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.
2.2 Impact Edge – Heat treated and built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability, this edges gives the best balance of durability and feel of the whole Armada collection.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
