With a new ash and poplar core, which lightens the "AR Dub" while adding energy and pop, Armada's ultra-fun ARW 96 kicks things up a notch. Well-balanced AR Freestyle Rocker and beefy edges mean the skis hold up to abuse from rails, trees, drops, and other jibs while also being able to turn the entire mountain into a playground. Welcome to the Dub Club.
AR Freestyle Rocker – Rockered tips and tails are combined with positive camber underfoot to allow the ski to charge with ease through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.
Flex Pattern (1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – Tip: 5, Waist: 6, Tail: 5.5
Pop-Lite Core – Lightweight wood is combined with a higher density, stiffer species in a horizontal laminate to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
Spin Tip – Lightweight material in the tip and tail allows for increased maneuverability for the ski when in it's in the air.
AR75 Sidewalls – Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
S7 Base – Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.
2.2mm Impact Edge – Heat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.
