Armada ARVTI or the el Diente
for skiing primarily park and urban which ski would you chose?
It's symbolizes what I feel. I'm at war with the haters.
only been on the Al Dente, so I'll comment on that. I personally found it too soft. It didnt feel stable, but that being said it was one of the most fun and most playful skis I have ever ridden. Its solid on rails so probably good for urban
Skier born, skier inspired. Hand made in Reno-Tahoe
arvti has a sheet of metal in it and is way stiffer that the dente. not a ski i would necessarily look at for urban. if u dont want the soft soft dente but u want the width get the new alpha or halo which are both in the mid 90s underfoot.
For urban you will be much better off with thall or ar7. The aldente is a great all mtn/park ski. It's on the softer side but if you ski it longer then your normal park ski it's great. By that I mean I would normally buy park skis in 176or 181 but in the al dente I woul def go 188.
The arv ti is stiff it's a really good all mtn charger not as playfull in the park, but good for jumps. Although I'd mainly keep it as a good all mtn ski with sharp edges
