"A solid backside all-mountain ski is as strong on-piste as it is off-piste. It is made to perform well everywhere within the resort bounderies. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort and floatation in powder snow."
I didn't think it was possible, but the Armada ARVti is an even better all-mountain ski than its predecessor the ARV. The ARVti is a little bit wider and stiffer. And Armada has added a little rocker at the tip. Because the ski got a little bit stiffer, the stability and overall performance on piste improved. The tip rocker ensures that the off-piste performance has stayed the same.
When on piste you put the ARVti on its side, you feel that wonderful surge of energy that makes a perfect carve turn so enjoyable. Huge amounts of edge grip and total stability a full speed result in a very very good on-piste performance. You can ride the Armada ARVti as hard off-piste as you can ride it on-piste. There is no limit to what this ski can handle. It speeds through chopped-up snow effortlesly and holds its own in deeper snow. It feels like the ARVti is always urging you to go faster and faster.
Armada about the ARVti
"Featuring top and bottom layers of Titinal, AR Nose Rocker, and a Comp Series Base; The ARVti is an incredible tool for using the mountain as your terrain park. Carbon fiber strips laid from tip to tail increase liveliness while a burly core produces maximum stability. Enjoy!", says Armada. And I agree. The ARVti is again a top performing all-mountain ski by Armada, that can handle any type of terrain in any circumstances.

"I like my ski to be comfortable and handling bumps and loose snow without effort. I don't go off-piste more than on the side of groomers. A typical all conditions on the piste skier with comfort and style as priorities."
The Armada ARVti is a true all-mountain ski, easy to turn, and guides you off-piste and through poor conditions. The ski is stiff, but still playful. It gives you absolute control in all conditions. The Armada ARVti is the top-end all-mountain ski from Armada, and I agree that it is outstanding, 4 stars for this ski. That is because for me with my skills, the Armada TSTw is an even better match.
A bit of rocker
Armada is fantastic in developing freeride skis, which do the trick in most circumstances. This counts as well for the Armada ARVti. With its bit of rocker you get some playfulness, and still stability. You can work this ski while carving or off-piste through powder. The one thing is, that a bit of rocker is not enough for me. I like an all-mountain ski to really rock and to be not too stiff. And therefor I think the Armada ARVti probably suits the better skiers with more power even more.

Giving you stability on every piste and condition, the Armada ARVti is allround quality.
