2015 Armada ARV Ti ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its All-Mountain Front Category.

Last year, Armada built a new mold for its “on-piste charger” known as the ARV Ti and added a top and bottom layer of Titanal plus Nose rocker. “This ski has more of an all-mountain focus than frontside,” observes Witman. “It’s very fun off trail and feels stable on crud and in the bumps.” Other design specs include a 98-mm waist, full sidewall construction and Armada’s Double Zone Core made with lightweight wood and ski-length carbon fiber strips. Testers gave the ARV Ti highest scores for stability, lower for carving. “It’s easy to skid in soft snow and best off-piste, but don’t expect to carve any turkeys with it,” quips Bills.
