Armada ARV 106

2020 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 this…

Armada ARV 86

2020 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 underfoo…

Armada ARV 96

2020 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 nice …

Armada BDOG

2020 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 all-rou…

Line Blend

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The Blends are light for the size, have a low swingweight and are super soft in the tips and tails. They aren't that poppy but they are easy to ollie thanks to that super soft flex. If you like soft skis, like to play around in the park and all over the hill at less than mach 10, then just…

  • Dimensions: 132 / 100 / 122 mm

Line Chronic

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The new Chronic is a pretty major departure from previous years. The Chronic has always been the flagship park ski for Line, but the new model sits more in the 'narrow all-mountain ski but still park capable' market space. The short radius and low swingweight combine to make these super quic…

Armada Edollo

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: The new iteration of the Dollo is... almost exactly like the old one to be honest. A softer tail means the skis feel slightly more balanced despite the rockered nose and cambered tail. And they still have a decent degree of torsional stiffness compared to other jib noodles like the Line Ble…

Liberty Helix 98

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: "I personally loved the Helix due for aggressive ski style, mostly hitting large jumps and rails. What I really enjoyed is the wider 98mm platform because it gave me more ski to work with on rails. The stiff camber section allowed me to charge jumps, with the super low swingweight making it…

Line Honey Badger

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: In terms of value, these skis are right up there. They will work incredibly well for some but not for others. I couldn’t personally ski these as my daily park driver because on an average day I tend to rail around the mountain, ski some cruddy bump runs and high speed all mountain j…

K2 Skis Poacher

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: "So they rip all mountain, they seem tough and they're loose enough to be fun when playing around. Sounds like they are flawless right? Not quite. For one thing they are fairly heavy at over 2,000g per ski in a 176. You can actually feel that difference in the air, in that they don't whip round a…

Faction Prodigy 1.0

2020 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Review: I spent a whole summer in Zermatt on the Prodigy and, while it's a stiffer ski than I generally like, I was stoked on it for the most part. With a short radius and generous rocker they are super quick on rails, and they have a pretty low-swingweight for technical tricks. The stiff flex kee…
