Armada ARV Skis 2011

Armada ARV Skis 2011: Positive Camber gives the Armada ARV Ski a traditional all-mountain feel. It’s lively edge-to-edge, stable through the arc of any turn, and has plenty of width to perform in the deep stuff.
Shape
The Positive Camber engages the tip and tail of the ski, enhancing ease of entry and exit into and out of a turn, while maintaining solid edge hold
Construction
ABS sidewall construction creates the highest performance skis Armada offers. Two strips of ABS material lie directly along-side the core and over the ski’s edges, providing unequaled edge hold, core protection, and stability. As the name implies, the 50/50 base is faster and more rugged than any other base Armada offers. A blend of Carbon/Kevlar stringers run along the tail of the skis to help stabilize it. This creates a better landing platform, especially when your weight is further back than intended. It also increases snap and adds pop to ollies
The 2.5 impact edge has an oversized height and width and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness which helps resist breaking and tearing out from rails, ledges and any other abuse it might meet.
Flex
A medium flex combines with the Double Zone core (two high density wood stringers that sit along ultralight wood) to create a light core with pop and solid edge hold, while keeping swing and overall weight down. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex. Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski.
Flex Rating
Tip: 5, Waist: 7, Tail: 6 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Binding Compatibility
Requires a binding brake width between 95mm and 100mm

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for skis offering skiers lots of edge hold, especially on harder snow. A cambered ski has a smooth arch underfoot and contact points near the tip and tail when unweighted. Camber skis excel at carving on hard snow; you won’t ever see a ski racer on anything other than cambered skis.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
