The manufacturer says this about the Armada ARV Skis 2008:
When we started Armada, we introduced two models – one for park and one for the steep and deep. The ARV was our original ski for the all-mountain arena and is left standing as the only model still in the line since our inception – of course with a variety of improvements. If you ski all over the mountain but ride the park on occasion, this is the ski for you. This year we shaved weight and added more vertical stiffness with the re-designed AR Core 2 and heat-treated 2.5 Impact Edge. A generous sidecut and stiffer flex profile keeps the ARV stable at high speeds, while remaining nimble. Fully twin-tipped, lightweight, and finished with craftsmanship, the ARV is truly our high-performance all-mountain ski.
