Where to mount on new AR6?
I just got the AR6's with Look PX 12 bindings. I am an advanced skier standing at 6' 210lbs. I spend about 30% of my time in the park, and the rest is on piste, with limited powder as I live in the northeast.
To get to my question, where would you recommend I mount these bindings? I was told that Armada only has one mounting position, but I was wondering if this is true. Any help/opinions are appreciated.
should havbe gone with the 181
ok not to hate but, you ski only 30% and you bought the AR6?
for your question I would just use the recommended mounting point, its designed for all mountain.
Woah it's a signature
I felt more comfortable with the 176, as i want something that spins a little easier in the air. But then i was told that if you don't have them on a true center mount, your spin is lop-sided, resulting in slower spins. As I said before, this is only 30% of my skiing (park) however I want a mount that allows me to carve decently well on groomed as well as kick ass in the park.
But can you even center mount the armada's? I was told you couldn't.
I'm looking to double that 30% by next winter to 60%. I love it, but I'm still working on it. The rest of the mountain I have under my belt as I can take on trees, moguls, and steeps.
Now, I want to get better at park skiing.
honestly i wouldnt worry about what ppl say about them.... the ski will perform flawlessly for you
Go for recommended, or at most +1 from recommended. The recommended mount is only 5cm back from true center, so it's already pretty decent for park.
if i were u i would mount them core center no true center but core senter
if i were to mount them core center, would that really affect my performance on piste?
core center would be better for sking all mountain...and true center ( the middle of the ski) will be better for park...i mount pretty much all my skis true center and i dont have any problems carvin at all
