i would go with k2 al the way
ar7 looks legit
i asked sean jordan how the revival was and he said its sick but its noy symetrical. a good symetrical park ski that is wide and has rocker is the domain. it has a 90mm underfoot which isnt that bad. i demoed a pair and i ski the east at big boulder park and i loved them.
ive been riding the revivals for about 3 months now and they definitely have they're pros and cons.
im 5'11", about 165lbs, have the 179cm, andvanced skier, mounted dead center.
Pros: outrageously fun and easy to butter and pivot due to the mix of zero camber and rocker. also they have a nice mid flex, not too buttery.
Cons: the only thing that i dont like about the ski is the lack of pop. i was just testing the pop out by like popping off the tails on a groomer. i really noticed a difference from past skis that ive had.
just ask if you have anymore questions
im interested to hear about the pop some more and the weight compared to the ar7. these are the 2 skis i have narrowed my selection down to. i looked up the revival and they weigh 4220g per pair @ 174 (thanks evo) but i cant find the weight for the ar7s
i think im leaning toward the revivals too. i want a little wider waist (had ar6s) and the rocker sounds interesting from all the reviews ive heard. plus the revival have a shorter turn radius than the ar7s
btw im 6' 180ish
Armadas = bombproof
K2s = nukeproof
I went with Revivals in the same situation- hopefully it plays out. I've had a few K2 park skis over the years and 2 pairs of AR6's. I've loved both companies so so much- you really can't go wrong with either choice.
think imma go with the revivals
fack! now my ar6 poles wont match anymore haha
