Size chart for Armada - Men Freestyle Skis

Extreme versatility for a new era of all-mountain freestyle performance

The Armada ARV 96 is skiing’s ultimate handyman, no matter what you throw at it, this ski will get it done. Featuring a new ash and poplar wood core for its most responsive feel yet. The ARV 96 is a great allrounder for every situation inside or outside the park. It's got great stability for approaching kickers but is still flexible enough for jibs.

Riding Style
All-mountain freestyle/park ski for intermediate to advanced level skiers. The versatile shape and profile make this ski perfect for freestyle riding in any terrain. Whether park, piste or backcountry, you can ride this ski anywhere. 

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 an even rocker in nose and tail. This profile is perfect for any terrain. Precision and pop for park and groomers, good float in the powder. 

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 Poplar Ash 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.

Flat Ski Binding Compatibility

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. 

Free Ski Set Mounting

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).
