http://www.skis.com/Armada-ARV-Skis-2... Once again the ARV returns as the longest running ski in the Armada lineup. Fortunately Armada understood not to mess with a good thing and over the years the ARV has seen some tweaks but the essence that has made it a cult classic has been left to mature into a wonderful all mountain ski. Keeping things nice and traditional the ARV sticks with a full sidewall construction to keep it very responsive edge to edge and smooth with tremendous edge hold. Again staying simple with a Double Zone Wood Core the ARV stays nice an lightweight for a ski in the mid 90mm underfoot with a very balanced flex pattern that is better suited to all mountain charging but depending on where you mount it can be super playful in the park as well. This flex pattern combined with a rather long turn radius allows the ARV to be very versatile with its turn shape both having the stability to rail long type arcs but soft enough to tighten up and hit snappy fall line carves when you need it to. Over the years the ARV was given a CK stringer as well, a carbon/kevlar weave, to increase the rebound energy and pop which serves to amplify the versatility of turn shape and ski as a whole. Since the ARV is not a true park ski Armada uses their slightly faster running 50/50 base but does keep the 2.5 Impact edges for added durability in case of rock hits or random jibbing. Perfectly balanced, smooth carving, and stable the ARV has proved itself over the last eight years as the perfect tool for doing absolutely everything.
