One of our all-time faves, it blends all the fun of a park ski with the performance of a piste ski while, crucially, remaining cool

Since day one, Armada’s ARV range has stood as a testament to what a true all-terrain ski should be. Powerful and agile, stable and responsive, with an emphasis on fun and playfulness. The 2019 Armada ARV 96, with that versatile 96mm waist, is as comfortable on and off the piste as it is in the park, able to handle all three domains without making significant sacrifices in any. Slightly stiffer than mid-flex, they lean towards performance while still offering plenty of forgiveness making them the deal progression tool for intermediate and advanced skiers looking for that elusive one-ski quiver.

A light yet powerful core and versatile profile

Built around Armada’s Pop-lite wood core, with high-density hardwood stringers, the ARV is a super lively and poppy ski, while Spin Tip construction in the nose and tail reduces swing weight, keeping the ski balanced and agile. The AR Freestyle rocker blends reverse camber in the nose and tails with traditional positive camber underfoot, allowing the ski to charge through chop and pow while still being able to hold a solid carve on the hard pack. Clever Elf-shoe reverse sidecut help to deliver the float of a larger ski with the turn radius of a shorter, narrower one.

The durability to last and last

The AR75 Sidewall partially sidewall, partially cap for a blend of edge hold, reduced weight and durability. This helps to balance performance with reduced swing-weight and increased durability. A little more flex in the nose and tail helps with turn initiation and exit, while a the super-fast S7 base will have you charging in no time. Want to take it to the rails? No problem – you’ll be armed with Armada’s chunky 2.2mm Impact Edge for ultimate protection.

The ARV 96 can do it all.
