The 2012/2013 ARV holds the distinction of being the 10th version of the model and has been a part of Armada's line since the brand began. "This is a good ski to crossover from park and pipe to All-Mountain skiing," said Sutton. Design specs include a 95 mm waist, traditional camber, full sidewall construction and Armada's Double Zone Core, made with lightweight wood, two high-density wood stringers and Carbon/Kevlar stringers in the tail for pop. "Be aware: It has a soft flex, especially in the tip, but that makes it fun and jibby," said Maybon. "Slide them or ride them, either way they are very maneuverable."
