Hey guys just wondering how these things perform in the park.. I know Henrik uses them but he is a beast and can make any ski work. I am mainly worried about the swing weight. Anybody with experience please share.
c'mon guys, ninety views and not a single reply
theyre great in the park, end of discussion. theyre totally a mid fat park ski. don't worry for a moment that theyll be out of place there, i have nothing but good things to say about them. and shit, henrik uses them lol
Looking for some 183 armada TSTs, moment pb&j, rossi s3, or on3p jeronimos...PM me if you can help me. thanks
Hands down one of the best all mountain park ski in my opinion. The swing weight is really quick it's defeintly a perfect ski if your skiing 60% park 40% all mountain. But if its just for park there's better options out there. The flex on it is perfect if you weigh 140+ I am riding on a 175 and i weigh 120 5'9" and i find i cant flex the ski as well as i could if i was heavier.
My only bad things to say about it is the topsheets chip WAY to easily and it isn't that turny/practical if you ski in the trees
If you ride the arv at a short length they do well in the trees. I'm 5'11 180lbs and ride them at 175. I do have a prefrance for short skis due to how tight the trees are out here in the east. Wish I had a extra 5cm but do not need them in a 185 length.
Cool. Im thinking these will be a good park and general all around ski for Mt. Bachelor(where i ski). Where should i mount for park?
seeing they are not symmetrical i would not mine are mounted at -3.5 behind dead center , But thats my opinion you can whatever you want.
For mounting I'd go like -2 cm or so.
I've had a pair in a my line up for a long time and I absolutely love them, they're my do everything ski, i personally have them back 2 cm (was told that they can feel nose heavy at center mount by local ski shop when i purchased them).
All times are Eastern (-4)
