Throw anything you want at the Armada ARV 96 Ski and it will get the job done. AR75 Sidewalls keeps you feeling very maneuverable, delivers edge grip when you need it and dampens out vibrations. Armada's AR Freestyle Rocker makes the ski feel playful when you are lining up a big jump, finding your top speed on the groomers and dipping into the trees for some soft turns. A Spin Tip lowers the swing weight. The ARV 96 has the Poplar Ash Core that is made with lightweight soft wood running the entire length of the ski and horizontally laminated harder woods that drive energy towards the snow. The 2.2 Impact Edges are thicker and more durable to help withstand damage from rocks or rails. If you want a single ski that takes on the park, steeps, deeps and anything in between the Armada ARV 96 is a great ski for you.
