Line Chronic VS Armada ARV
Hello, my Atomic infamous recently started to delaminate.. I'm thinking about switching to some Line Chronic or Armada ARV because I want a larger ski to do some all around skiing. I used to be a park rat and now I want something a little bit larger to have some fun on snowy days.. Just not sure which skis I should go with.. I have to choose between Armada, Line, Atomic and Volkl.
Never skied the arv's, but I can tell you that my chronics are my favourite park ski I've ever been on. Super poppy, I feel I can ollie anything with them. They are mostly my park skis as I have a dedicated all mountain and pow pair, but when I take them out of the park they are super fun.
Something else to look at would be the line blend, lots of line athletes use them in the park, but you would enjoy the extra width when getting out of the park.
Thanks for info, appreciate it.
Never Bought Armadas Don't Get Line They Fall Apart Really Fast Go With Volkl Or Armada
For what you're describing ARVti is what you should go for. it's more all mountain than chronic without sacrificing the park performance.
I'd go bacons over the chronics. yea they are wider but they are pretty flexy. Amazing for all mtn and great for park if your on the western half of the US. I have written a review on the bacons and stated that I was displeased with them but riding them some more I have fallen in love with them. I haven't riden the ARVti skis but have heard that they fucking shread all mtn.
I Skied on a pair of ARV's a couple of years ago and they were the best ski in the world. I'd say if your looking for an all mountain Ski the ARV would be a bit more sturdy and bit more fun out of the park. I know that the chronics are also a lot of fun but they are very flexible and skinnier.
Haven't skied the ARV but i ski armada and love them so that's what I would do
