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.
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
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.
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.
