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 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…

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…

2019 Skis

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…

Deviation Ballistic

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: Designed with freestyle progression in mind, the all-new Ballistic is primed to throw down everywhere from sidecountry lines to side hits to spring park laps. Light enough to spin and wide and damp enough to huck into powder, this model features the most tip and tail rocker of any ski ot…

Line Blend

2019 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, th…

Coalition Snow Bliss

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: We designed the Bliss women's freestyle ski to be the queen of park, but this little rebel refused to conform to any labels. After taking a beating in the rail garden and stomping the jump line, she’s been sneaking out early to rip frozen corduroy with ex-race-aholics channel…

Faction Candide 1.0

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Quick Reviews: The Candide 1.0 was a fun ski to rip around on the bluebird groomer I tested them at. From what I had heard I was expecting a stiff ski, and while it was solid under foot, the tip and tail had a nice amount of flex and pop. It moved quickly from edge to edge with a short-medium r…

Faction Candide 2.0

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The ski of choice for most of the Faction Squad and with good reason, these things are loads of fun. The Candide 2.0 has evolved over recent years, what was a fairly stiff ski, is now the softest its been, especially in the tip. They are buttery and playful, but stillery skiable all over th…

Line Chronic

2019 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 …

Armada EDollo

2019 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 B…

Line Honey Badger

2019 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…

Salomon NFX

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: If fun means winning, then stop making excuses and grab a pair of NFX. The full sidewall construction and Woodcore stand up to big hits, while the elastomer pulse pad helps cushion the biggest landings. Time to step it up.

Faction Prodigy 1.0

2019 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 f…

Faction Prodigy 1.0x

2019 Skis

Manufacturer's Description: This Poplar-cored, freestyle twin, has buckets of pop and flex while maintaining real performance on the downhill. Rebelling against symmetrical park ski tradition, the directional shape of the Prodigy 1.0 ensures that you have more control throughout your turn, whether that's carving i…

Line Tom Wallisch Pro

2019 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: "I love this ski. I've been in the park since around 2000 and I can honestly say these are one of, if not the, best park skis I have ever used. They make doing things in the park easier, and because of that they give you a feeling that you can try more. And partly because of the ski, you can …
