How do 2018 ARV 116 differ?
Specifically looking into the 2018 ARV 116 JJ. How does it compare to first and second gen JJs? Looks like more effective edge and less dramatic taper like the Magic J. Is the 2018 version better in crud?
I dont need them to excel in crud, I have plenty of charger skis, but I am looking for a short (185ish) jib ski to progress my all mountain jibbing in soft snow. Basically a fat park ski. Have had good luck with 186 gunsmokes and 185 bentchetlers, wondering if the arv 116 can handle crud under my fat ass, like the blizzard and atomic can. Or should I just stick to tried and true and find a bent chetler??
I have last years and they rip. This years from what I see have a different core and are a bit more stiffer.
Thanks dude. How do they handle firmer snow? Decent? The new shape looks less radical, and seems like it would suit me better than the old one. Not for a daily driver, but I am looking for a wide but super easy going and jibby ski to progress my jibs in soft snow. Doesnt need to handle 50mph in crud, I have skis for that. Want 185cm, and -2.5ish mount from true center. 110-120mm underfoot.
I have read the blister gear review but looking for a few more opinions. Not a lot of info on the 2018 ARV 116.
I have both last years and this years 116 and the changes that they have made to this years are amazing!! slightly stiffer, little more responsive, but still a super fun playful ski. This ski is the number one ski I rode all last season and am riding this year. It handles everything u throw at it so well, and yet is a very very predictable ski imo. Hopefully this helps. If you have any more questions just holler
