"It's less of a be-on-edge kind of ski and more of a butter-your-turns ski," said Bremner of the soft-flexing ARVw. "Its best feature is playfulness, particularly in bumps." The All-Mountain twin tip has an 89 mm waist (available in 165 cm size only) and design specs include traditional camber, full sidewall construction and a lightweight wood core, along with Carbon/Kevlar stringers in the tail to add pop. "It performs best when pressured in the center and taken to soft snow or crud," said Sutton.
