The Armada ARV 86 Skis are premium park skis from one of the most legendary freestyle brands in the industry. They have a perfect in-between flex that's springy yet pliable, perfect for loading up and boosting off. There's a ton of camber underfoot and just enough rocker in the tips and tails to make butters and presses a piece of cake. Plus they're made with oversized 2.5 mm impact edges that are built to take a beating.
AR Freestyle Rocker – Rockered tips and tails are combined with positive camber underfoot to allow the ski to charge with ease through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.
Flex (1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – Tip: 6 | Mid: 6 | Tail: 7
Poplar Ash Core – Lightweight poplar is combined with higher density full-length ask stringers to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
AR75 Sidewall – Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
S7 Base – Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.
2.5 Impact Edge – Oversized and specially heat-treated, this edge is built to resist impact damage in the most demanding situations.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
