AR7 vs Revival vs Triumph
Ok so I need a new pair of skis but I am torn between the Armada AR7, K2 Revival, and the Armada Triumph. I am just starting park will probably be doing 40% of it next year and mostly jumps, some powder, few moguls, and groomers. I am 5'7" and 125 pounds, but I can get the most out of a ski, like skiing 6 inches of powder in a 181 race ski. Does anyone have a suggestion on what to get and what they have seen in these skis?
Well first off drop the triumph it is not a park ski or a full twin. The next two are both pretty solid, both perform pretty well in the all mountain and park category. AR7 is going to be lighter with a lower swing weight, the revival is a little heavier but is still a super fun ski with the slight rocker and better all mountain performance. I have been on both and i really enjoyed the revival for my riding style. You cant wrong with either. Look around for some good deals during the summer im sure some will pop up.
i would recommend the ar7 if you are a more aggressive female skier or weigh a bit more... otherwise you should grab the arw as it's the same construction as the ar7 but has a bit more responsive core profile for a lady...
I bought the K2s at the start of this season, super fun ski, real poppy, loads of fun in the park. They're good in pow, not amazing but they're good. I used them everyday from guiding people around the mountain, jibbing around and alot of park, loved them!
