Armada AR8

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: Armada's last traditional pipe/slopestyle ski, the AR8 is a pretty solid offering with full camber and a fairly stiff tail. I only got to spend a couple of runs on these but they felt almost identical to the Pipe Cleaner of old, potentially they are the same exact ski. They carve great …

Armada ARV 106

2019 Skis

Newschoolers Quick Review: The ARV 106 has been one of my favorites since it dropped a couple of years back and the new version is even better. When I'm not sure what conditions the trip I'm going on is going to throw at me (and I don't have something else I have to review). Perhaps the old ski was a touch (though t…

Armada ARV 116 JJ

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The 116 is tons of fun. It's a fairly solid ski but still plenty playful. It isn't necessarily one for the big lines, but it'd be a great great choice for the park kid who wants to get jibby in the pow like THall or the dad who wants to have a more surfy style to their skiing in deep sn…

Armada ARV 86

2019 Skis

Member Quick 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 un…

  • Dimensions: 118 / 86 / 112 @ 177

Armada ARV 96

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The ARV 96 is a versatile, 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 is…

Armada ARV 96 TI

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: I've only had a couple of runs on these skis (having spent a solid chunk on the regular ARV96) but these are exactly what you'd expect. Same ARV shape but damper and stiffer. It's a great shape for skiing the whole mountain too so the added stiffness turns them in to a real charger. The reg…

Black Crows Atris Birdie

2019 Skis

Like its universal avatar, the atris birdie concentrates on four things: stability, rapid edging, tolerant degree of flex, and progressive tail rise.

Armada B-Dog

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick 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…

Atomic Backland 107

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The dimensions suggested that it would be turny but undergunned in deeper pow for a skier of Toby and my weight, but the numbers lied. Maybe it's the magic HRZN tech; maybe its the pronounced tip rocker. Whatever it was the Backland had no problem going straight and it certainly had…

Atomic Backland 117

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: Backcountry touring is exploding, and over the past few years our Backland series has proved super popular among new tourers, as well as a lot of seasoned pros.

Volkl Bash 89

2019 Skis

(Formerly the Transfer 89) Newschoolers' Review The Bash is a directional ski. The flex felt similar to the Step but the tail felt slightly stiffer. I like a directional ski and I found I could handle the softer flex better on the Revolt 85. They were easier to carve too and would actually make a pretty good …

Moment Bella

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: Why mess with a reviewer's favorite? Well, since converting the Bella to the same rocker profile we use in the Meridian, we've heard nothing but praise for the radical change in design. We've unleashed a friendly dragon, one that is just as willing to carve as ever, but even more playfu…

Atomic Bent Chetler 100

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The funny thing about the Bentchetler 100 is that it is almost wholly unlike its larger sibling. You'd expect a soft-ish, playful midfat ski, given that the 120 is such a jibby powder tool but in fact, the 100 is a fairly directional, fairly stiff inbounds mixed conditions oriented of s…

  • Dimensions: 129.5 / 100 / 120

Atomic Bent Chetler 120

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The Bent Chetler is an icon of a ski. They're extremely surfy, float great and are very playful offering infinite buttery fun! They carve well, but they do chatter a more than other skis in the same bracket (ON3P Jeffrey 116, Volkl Bash 116.. even the Magnum Opus) however the new, lig…

Sego Big Horn 90

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: The skinniest member of the Big Horn family is built for low swing weight and stability in the terrain park. Stout camber underfoot provides serious pop and great absorption for stomping landings. Butter zones in the tips and tails make presses automatic. And, directional sidecut wi…

  • Dimensions: 116 / 90 / 112

Sego Big Horn 96

2019 Skis

Newschoolers Review: The Sego Big Horn 96 is a super-versatile ski. They feel a bit more focused on all-mountain performance, as opposed prioritising jibbing, with a very solid underfoot section. But the softer nose and tail mean they are still pretty playful and butterable. They turn really nicely on hardpa…

ON3P Billy Goat

2019 Skis

Since our beginning, the Billy Goat has been the go-to choice for stability, power, and maneuverability in soft snow.

Rossignol Black Ops

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The Black Ops is the Rossi ski I've been waiting for. Solid underfoot, maneuverable, and full of pop despite being pretty hefty, these skis are not to be taken lightly. Currently only produced in the 186 length, these Rossi's are just enough ski for me. They hold a suprising edge on groomers…
