ARV 116 JJ
Gear Buddy Opinion
The ARV series is Armada's almountain freestyle line. However this really just means park and you can get away with them elsewhere. The lineip consists of 5 offerings from 84 underfoot to 116. All of the skis will excel in the park or freeriding while holding their own on the mountain. Dont expect deep GS turns, but instead expect the ash stringers and poplar core to send you to the moon. This is the powder weapon in the ARV lineup. Designed to provide snappy turns in the trees and pop perfectly off features, this is the perfect option for thoose who like to get a little buttery in the pow.
Best Ski Ever!
I just got my second pair of JJ’s, I had well over 500 days on the first pair and skied them until they went flat and delaminated! I’m 5”11 220lbs on 185s and I ski them almost every day and they’re an extremely robust quiver killer. I mount them in the freestyle position(because that’s where JP would’ve put em). 10-10 would recommend and I’ll ski them as long as they’re in production and beyond. I should mention that I got the first pair on a whim at a ski swap.
