Armada ARV 116 JJ Flat Skis 2020
The iconic Armada ARV 116 JJ Skis are back with the same playful personality we know and love, featuring a stiffer profile than previous years for extra confidence in spicy no-fall zones. These powder puppies are built to pop, drift and smear down the mountain with beveled Smear Tech bases in the tip and tail for effortless catch-free turns whichever direction you face. Freestyle rocker and a near symmetrical shape make switch takeoffs and landings a breeze, so quit daydreaming and go build that backcountry booter!
AR Freestyle Rocker – Rockered tips and tails are combined with positve camber under foot to allow the ski to charge with ease through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.
Flex Pattern (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – Tip: 7 | Waist: 8 | Tail: 7.5
Smear Tech – A 3D beveled base in the tip and tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self centering in deep snow and un-catchable on take offs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left or right.
Poplar Ash Core – Lightweight Poplar is combined with higher density full length Ash stringers to create an impossibly lively ski that has all the power needed for boosting to new elevations.
AR75 Sidewalls – Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
S7 Base – Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.
2.2 Impact Edge – Heat treated and built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability, this edges gives the best balance of durability and feel of the whole Armada collection.
