I dont think you can let ppl decide for you, you need to ski them yourself, and have u skied 1080's or ar5's thats where you should start as well as comparing stats
AR5's: Are considered a Park-Pipe-All mountain-Urban ski. and come in sizes 161, 171, 176, and 181. They have 2.5 Edge tech which they say is the beefiest edge tech to man! They have a 8 series top sheet which is said to be stronger than previous armada topsheets which is good considering ive seen lots of schematic, and cosmetic damage to the armada skis. They have a New #1 AR Core which decreases the weight, and provides more response and stability, as well as durability when riding. And some hella weird artwork if you ask me...Last years 170 ski had the dimensions of 109-78-99 and ranged in the price of 400 and up most the time.
Foils-well obviously many people ride this ski, as you most likely saw in the x-games. The ski comes in the sizes 166, 174, and 182. And runs about 470-500 dollars. The skis is said to carve or slide, its versataile, has great edge grip, and is fun and more fun. The skis dimensions and sidecut are 124-83-113. The ski has a Salomon Construction, and Monocoque composite. I have also heard that the skis is now part wood as well as foam. I have heard nothing but good things about the ski.
that raps it up i think!
