Product Info

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.

Product Details

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)

Comments about Armada ARV Skis 2011:

The ARV was one of my favorite all-mountain skis last season and I just had to try it out again. It didn't disappoint me this year either. The ski is solid, it's flexible and it's not too stiff. All of which make me like this ski a lot. It's light weight and energetic but not skittish. It doesn't get deflected around when you hit some variable snow even at high speeds. Whatever the terrain you put in front of this ski it will easily navigate through regardless of your ski level thanks to the shape and stiffness of the ski. This would be at the top of my list if I had to have one ski and was equally enthusiastic about skiing groomers, bump, crud and powder.

    Just used them in Tahoe on groomers and dipping into the woods. Fast skis with good stability and turning capability. Didn't have enough powder to really test their flotation.

    - Looks amazing.
    - Very smooth.
    - Carves nicely.

    Coming from Salomon Lords and getting some time on Volkl Bridge's, the ARV's are fun and playful. They aren't too hard or too soft, they do want you want and ski in every condition.

        Nice all rounder and great in deep pow. Skiied last year in Lake Tahoe in that epic week of 20 feet of snow. These skiis were excellent and I am a 200 lbs. Just let them go hard.

        Great all-mountain ski. This ski floats on the powder yet does fine on packed powder too. Not as grippy as some but an awesome ski all around.
