Technical info:
ARV 86 is the narrowest ski in Armada´s ARV series. This is a moderate park ski with some taper and short rocker in both ends. Its flex curve is similar to the 4FRNT model. High camber in the front ski.

On snow:
ARV is a medium wide jibber ski that, depending on the mounting, performs well both in and outside the park. Versatility is also ARV´s strongest card. This ski is a little more traditional than 4FRNT´s model, but the area of use is similar. ARV is predictable and it receives more or less the same scores from all the test riders. We can´t really pick on anything. It could have been more responsive, but it won´t disappoint anyone. ARV and 4FRNT´s Vandal are both very good allround alternatives, but if we were to choose one it would have to be ARV
