I'm looking for a new playful parkski.
Currently i'm skiing an armada ARVti 2014, but i notice it is quite heavy and stiff for me. (i am a lightweight, 65kg at 180cm)
I can ride the arvti on groomers hard and fast, but i am missing the playful part.
I would like to have a new ski for some fun on the groomers (jumping, riding switch, etc), and to jump some small kickers in the park.
So i guess i would need to look for a ski with some camber, not too stiff and not too heavy.
I'm kinda armada based; i started skiing 10 years ago on some pipe-cleaners (those are wrecked by now), had some older arv's, now skiing on an ARVti for normal days and a Norwalk for powderdays.
Biggest catch here is that i ski on one leg (lost half of my lefty 5 years ago), so edge grip is a thing. (lot's of rocker/no camber is really hard to ski)
All the popping needs to come from one leg, so i do think weight is something that needs to be considered.
I probably won't be doing much butters or railsliding. ;)
On 2 legs i did do some freestyle skiing, i used to jump some 360's and 540 on small/medium kickers.
When i'm looking at armada ski's, i think i would pick the arv 86, but there might be a lot more ski's out there suitable for my needs.
