Armada ARW Skis - Women's 2014

Stomp tricks that the guys won't even try with the Armada ARW Skis. The most core women's park ski on the market, the ARW has a super low swing weight thanks to its Hybrid Double Zone Core. It also features AR50 sidewall construction, making the ARW the go-to choice for any park riding all-mountain shred betty. Urban setups, park booters and jibs are no longer out of reach. Get after it girl!
Rocker Type
Positive Camber - None of this rocker nonsense. Traditional 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. It basically lets you go really big.
 
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Tip - 5.5, Waist - 7.5, Tail - 6.5
 
Core
Hybrid Double Zone Core - Two high-density wood stringers
 
Laminates
Laminate Matrix - Directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.
CK Stringer - Carbon and Kevlar stringers are used in the tail to add pop and extend life.
Sidewalls
AR50 Sidewall - With cap in the tip and tail and sidewall under foot, this construction balances performance characteristics for lower swing-weight and increased durability.
Base
S7 Base - Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness
Edges
2.5 Impact Edge - Oversized and specially heat-treated, built to resist impact damage
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Park & Pipe
    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.
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • 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.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Carbon, 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.
