The iconic Armada ARV 116 JJ continues to carve its name into ski lore, coming with a poplar and ash wood core for an increased responsibility for steep lines and tight terrain. The ARV 116 also adds confidence with a revamped flex profile to stiffen up tip and tail in tight conditions. 3D beveling on the tips/tails of the base is brought to you through Smear Tech, allowing limitless directions of drifting/pressing and smearing as you put your signature on the mountain.
Backcountry freestyle for intermediate to advanced level riders - You consider the backcountry as a snowpark with unlimited possibilities? Then this ski is the right choice for you.
This ski comes with a directional twin shape, the nose is a few millimetres wider than the tail with a central binding position. Thus, the ski offers the same riding characteristics forward and switch. However, due to the slightly wider nose, you get a bit more float in the soft snow.
This ski comes with a classic camber under the binding and a rocker in the nose and tail. The enormous float of the rockered tips improves manoeuvrability in deep snow while the camber underfoot provides edge hold, pop and response.
The medium-stiff flex provides you with a lively ski that allows you to stay in control at all speeds and pop over everything.
The AR75 Sidewall construction features a Cap construction in the tip and tail with a sidewall underfoot. The Cap construction in the tip and tail reduces the swing weight while the sidewall makes the ski more durable. The Pop-Lite core combines lightweight wood with a higher density, stiffer wood in a horizontal laminate to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations. The S7 Base is durable and requires low maintenance, and comes with a speed additive for quickness.
This ski does not come with bindings. We recommend a pair of bindings with a brake from 5 up to 10 mm wider than this ski. Please feel free to contact our customer service if you have a question about binding compatibility.
If you buy skis and bindings together we can mount them for you free of charge. For further information check our FAQs.
Please note that adult bindings cannot be combined with kids skis (and vice versa).
