The Good

  • Straightlining
  • Likes bumps and trees

The Bad

  • Not versatile
  • Not always stable
THE VERDICT

Armada's ARVw definitely got a little beat up by our testers. While they liked it in the bumps and trees, and straigthlining, it did not instill confidence in technically proficient skiers.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

Armada's ARVw is an all mountain ski for women who like to straightline and speed through moguls.

FULL REVIEW

Armada is a strong brand, but the ARVw was not ranked as one of their better offerings. While most of our testers liked this ski in the bumps and trees (where a lot of all-mountain skiing takes place), in other conditions, such as groomers or steeps, performance was limited. The overall consensus was that confident skiers who like to straightline more than they turn, or intermediates who want to bash soft moguls will be the most likely to enjoy this ski.
