The Armada ARV 106 Skis are fun. They're fast, sturdy all-mountain twins that are designed to let you do whatever you want, whenever you want, without having to worry about the conditions or what skis you've selected from your quiver for the day. They're quick edge to edge on groomer days, stable on landings and at speed, and have enough rocker and surface area to handle the deepest powder days. One thing that sets them apart from other all-mountain freestyle skis is Armada's Smear Tech that's featured in the tips and tails. This 3D beveling makes them surfier in the pow, butterier on the hard pack, and more fun to ride in almost any conditions.
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: 9 | Mid: 8 | Tail: 9
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.
Smear Tech – A 3D beveled base in the tip and tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self-centering in deep snow, and uncatchable on takeoffs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left, or right.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
