The 2023 Armada ARV 116 JJ is a ski with deep roots in ski history, and the Armada ARV 116 JJ Skis is the latest iteration in a long line of genre defining playful powder skis. They're like that one great friend from college: super fun and down to party, but when stuff gets serious, you can really rely on them. They have an al dente flex that's just right, coupled with a playful shape with tons of rocker in the tip and tail for surfing and slashing, plenty of camber under foot for boosting and railing, and Smear Tech 3D beveling so you can get that much looser when the situation calls for it.
Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
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.
Poplar+Ash Core: Lightweight Poplar is combined with higher density full length Ash stringers to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
Flex Pattern: Tip-10.0, Waist-7.0, Tail-9.0 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Base: S7 base is a sintered base that is fast, durable and holds wax well.
AR75 Sidewalls: Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap construction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
2.5mm Impact Edge:Heat treated and built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability, this edges gives the best balance of durability and feel.
Smear Tech: A 3D beveled base in the tip and tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left or right.
Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
