2018 Armada Ski Gear

Armada Al Dente Zero

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The flex profile, with a super soft nose and tail, isn’t quite as smooth as I personally like, but they are incredibly easy to butter. And while I prefer the rounder flex of the ARV96 (more on that in another review), in all other aspects I think the Al Dente is the better, more ver…

Armada Arv 106

2018 Skis

Newschoolers Review: The ARV 106 is a great ski and it certainly found a place in my quiver. I take them out whenever I just want to go for a rip all around the resort, if I’m not sure how much snow has fallen and if I’m going on a trip and don’t know what I’ll be riding. They are the sor…

Armada ARV 116 J

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The ARV 116 JJ replaces the JJ & JJ 2.0 for 2018 and I see no issue with the decision, it's certainly an upgrade more than anything. The 116 is a phenomenal ski, especially great for the park kid who wants to get jibby in the pow like THall or the dad who wants to have a more surfy st…

Armada ARV 86

2018 Skis

Member Review : Park is where the 86 truly shines. I've been riding wider skis for the past couple of years and I was surprised. I thought the 86 would be your stereotypical jump and trail ski, but this thing slays everything. It's got a really nice buttery flex in the tip and tail, and it's super solid underfoot. I…

Armada ARV 96

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The ARV 96 is a versatile, smooth medium flexing option that pretty much lets you take on anything you want in the park world. You can take it to decent sized jumps and you can swerve around the smallest of features. The shape handles soft snow pretty well for the size and the swingweight i…

Armada B-Dog

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The Armada BDog is basically what I always hoped the T-Hall ski would evolve into. It feels like a wide ski, but without the compromises of a fatter ski. Many of you will be considering the new ARV skis, but for the more jibby among you, I would take a closer look at the BDog. As an all…

Armada EDollo

2018 Skis

Member Review: The Armada EDollo ski is out of this world. When you transfer from a skinnier park ski to a wider more all mountain park ski the difference is unbelievably noticeable. The ski is rockered in tip and tail with a slight camber underfoot. Charging on this ski is not a problem, but the tips/ tails…
