Armada ARV vs. K2 Sight/poacher
So I've got 2 park skis - the ARW 96, and the K2 Missconduct 88. I guess the men's versions would be the ARV and K2 Sight...
I'm curious about the pros and cons, comparing the 2 skis. I'm somewhat new to park riding so I'm always interested to hear others' opinions on ski preference
I've noticed K2s are stiffer and have more of a quick/snappy pop to them, whereas the ARW's are softer and easier to butter.
I'm still trying to figure out which ones I prefer, and how the different flex/stiffness can benefit certain aspects of jibbing/popping, and landing bigger jumps
Obviously a good park skier can still nail tricks regardless of ski type....don't roast me I'm just a total gear nerd I can't help it lol
As someone who has skied neither of these I have nothing directly helpful. BUT as a fellow gear nerd I would say that you’ll probably end up preferring different skis depending on where you are skiing / who you are with / how you are feeling on any particular day. I own two very different skis and change my mind on which is better weekly.
Just buy some Line skis, fulltilts & p18. Then rock n roll
if you have to go one way or the other, do you prefer your ski to be a little softer or stiffer compared to the other option? assuming they're like their male counterparts, both are great medium flex skis but the ARV will be a little softer than the K2
