New for the 16/17 season, the Armada ARW 86 Skis are the latest and greatest in freestyle, all-mountain skis. Constructed with AR Freestyle Rocker, an agile Pop-Lite core, durable AR50 sidewalls, and an S7 base, the ARW 86s carry you effortlessly from the park to the groomers to the back bowls, and everything in between. The sky's the limit when you've got the Armada ARW 86 Skis under your feet.
AR Freestyle Rocker – Rockered tips and tails are combined with positive camber under foot 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.
Armada Flex (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – Tip - 4.5, Waist - 5.5, Tail - 5
Pop-Lite Core – Lightweight wood is combined with a higher density, stiffer species in a horizontal laminate to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
Spin Tip – Keeps the ski light and stable.
Carbon Kevlar Struts – Carbon and Kevlar stringers used in the tip and/or tail to add pop and extend life.
AR50 Sidewall – Cap construction in the tip and tail and sidewall under foot - balancing performance characteristics with lower swing-weight and increased durability.
S7 Base – Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.
2.5 Impact Edge – Oversized and specially heat-treated, built to resist impact damage.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
