The 2023 Armada ARV 116 JJ, a big mountain ski. A review of Armada's most playful powder ski, including weight and full specs.
The 2022 Armada ARV 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 snow. The new, fatter edges also mean you could just about use them as a seriously fat park ski. -@Kretzschmar

The blueprint for any playful powder ski.
The iconic Armada ARV 116 JJ continues to carve its name into ski lore, coming correct with a Poplar-Ash wood core for maximum energy return and pop when sending it down pillow lines and ripping tree shots. The JJ’s balanced flex profile is ideal for surfing powder while maintaining enough stiffness through the tip and tail to excel in tight conditions and no-fall zones. Smear Tech 3D base beveling in the tips and tails allow limitless directions of slashes, presses and butters as you put your signature on the mountain.
