Product Info

The Armada ARVw Skis were designed with all mountain exploration in mind. With wide a platform, traditional camber (no rocker), and full sidewall construction, this ski has a stable feel and precise edging in all conditions. The ARVw features classic design coupled with Armada innovation making it the ultimate all mountain ripper.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Positive CamberTraditional 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 control.

Flex

Flex PatternTip: 4, Waist: 6, Tail: 5 (1=soft; 10=stiff)

Core

Hybrid Ultralight CoreUltralight core using select wood stringers that have unusually high strength-to-weight ratios, UltraLight cores allow our widest skis to maintain a light-yet-stable feel.

Laminates

Laminate MatrixDeliberate directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity and allows each ski's flex to be precisely tuned. 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; Tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski.

CK StringerCarbon Kevlar combo stringers lie on top of the laminate matrix along the tail to brace the ski. This increases the landing platform, especially when weight is distributed farther back in the ski than intended. It also gives the ski more pop and extends ski life.

Sidewalls

ABS Sidewall ConstructionA full sidewall construction of two strips of ABS material lie directly alongside the core and over the ski’s edges, providing solid edge hold, core protection, and stability.

Base

50/50 BaseA blend of speed and durability, this base is faster than Armada’s S7 base but more rugged than the Comp series.

Edges

2.5 Impact EdgeThis 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.

Binding Compatibility

Bindings not included

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Armada ARVw Skis - Women's 2013:

    A good ski. Bought them at the end of the season, so it was good to have for those groomed, spring days. It is an aggressive ski, I look forward to trying it out more in the park. Got a ton of compliments on the graphics, too!
