178 or 188
I am planning on getting the 2014 Armada Al Dente's and I'm not sure what size I should get. I am about 6'1'' and weigh around 155-160. I will mainly be skiing park but occasionally take an all mountain run. So what do you guys think?
188 should be totally fine, im 6'1 160 too and i ride the crj, which is fairly similar in rocker profile
I'm 6'2 155 and ride the 178
My friend is 6'1 165 and rides the 188
When I rode his they felt exactly the same to be honest. 178 is what I usually ride for my other skis so I got those. My friend got the 188 because it was the only size avaible last year when he got em
It depends what you will use the skis for. If it's for park use I would go 178. If ots all mnt go 188. For reference I'm 5'11 and 170lbs and ride the 188 size. They were amazing all mnt at that size but in the park they were too big to be really fun. Personally i was lookin for a pure park ski I would look elsewhere but if you want an all mnt jib ski they are amazing.
