DesertStix86. Good mix of widths.
ZypherThe Volkl Revolt is a great ski and comes in an 85 waist I believe. As well, the older Moment Vice has a waist of 83 and a similar flex pattern. The revolts will be a bit stiffer than the armadas and the Vices will be a touch softer. There are plenty of more options but these two may be worth taking a look at.
lion.pappayea, been thinking about that too. Since I enjoyed ridinig the 96, 86 should more or less be the same I assume haha.
Thanks for the input! I'm looking at the revolt as well as line chronics (hopefully can find a new old model). Any idea on how line skis are?
ZypherOut of personal opinion, i haven't had too many good experiences on line skis. Their 2012-2016 skis had some problems in the pressing process and delamed pretty easily. idk about any newer ones tho. I mainly ride on3p, moment, and icelantic rn.
lion.pappaYea, that's one of my concerns too. But seems they have improved recently? Which skis would you recommend from moment/icelantic about 90mm width?
ZypherAs I said before, moment vice is a great choice. Icelantic doesn’t have to many Skis that size and their Nomad 95s are pretty close to the arvs. Is there a Nomad 85?
DesertStixI personally love these, they’re 86cm and can’t beat the sale price. Plus they are fun as hell...
ZypherThey took it out of the lineup last year I think. There is a few left in a 178cm and 184cm tho at https://www.skiburger.com/collections/skis-1
