Ski review Armada ARV
Superb all-mountain ski
The Armada ARV is such a good all-mountain ski that you dare attack any kind of terrain in any circumstances at full speed. On-piste this ski carves beautifully sharp and is very stable at top speed. The ARV just thunders through chopped-up snow. Even off-piste this ski performs really well. Its stability in any kind kind of terrain gives you the confidence to get everything out of the Armada ARV. And that's a lot.
Cheapest price we found Armada ARV ski 2013 for sale:
No rocker is used in the ARV's design, just camber. That's what makes the ski so stable at top speed. The rise at the tail provides playfulness and comfort. But however intense you'll initiate your carving turn, the Armada ARV will never drift one millimeter.
Advanced - Expert
50% piste - 50% off-piste
Extremely stable at max speed
Versatile and sharp carver
Perfect on- and off-piste.
No rocker twin tip
These days there are not a lot of all-mountain skis without any rocker. The Stöckli Stormrider VXL has no rocker and is extremely stable at top speed, but is doesn't have the playfulness of the Armada ARV nor the off-piste capabilities. Because to me stability, playfulness and off-piste capabilities are the vital ingredients for the perfect all-mountain ski, the Armada ARV is it. The 5 star rating is obvious.
Armada about the ARV
"The longevity of the ARV is a testament to its versatility and reliability. The ARV is stable and continues to be perfect for all terrain." I agree there. How could I not after 10 years of ARV top products.

The Atomic Vantage Panic is a very good twin tip all-mountain ski. It's bigger brother the Atomic Vantage Ritual has more off-piste qualities. The Stöckli Stormrider VXL is a no rocker just camber all-mountain ski like the Armada ARV.
