Armada ARV 96 2018 | SKI REVIEW

December 4th, 2017


If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! The Armada ARV 96 is a tried and tested all-mountain freestyle ski that’s proving to stand the test of time year after year. If you’re a confident skier who wants to hone their park skills and make the most of what the whole resort has to offer, the Armada ARV 96 is a bombproof, versatile ski that’s perfect for bump hopping, park shredding and piste cruising alike.  The 96mm waist will float over jumps, feel nimble on rails and hold its own on your standard resort powder day, whether you’re really going for it or having a chilled ski around resort. To use an often-written cliché, it’ll allow you to turn the whole mountain into a snowpark, for real. However, thanks to its slightly directional shape, medium radius and lightly rockered tip and tail, you’ll be able to navigate through late afternoon chop, bumps and hardpack just as easily as slushy park jumps. Whether you’re just getting started in the park or you like to throw down on a regular basis, the medium flex and lightweight tip and tail are perfect for hopping around on side hits and bumps, learning how to press and butter or progressing to bigger features. The perfect ski for first-time seasonaires, the ARV 96 will take you from nights at the snowdome to unleashing your inner Candide Thovex everywhere in resort.
