Baked to perfection.
Fresh from Armada's industrial-sized oven, the ARV W Women's Ski is hotter than an apple pie and more crowd-pleasing than a freshly baked pan of brownies. It doesn't taste as good, but it'll definitely shred way harder than any of your favorite baked goods, thanks to a fiberglass laminate matrix and carbon fiber layup, all wrapped around a Hybrid UltraLight wood core that's poppy and playful. Armada built the ARV W with a carbon and Kevlar stringer in the tail, giving you plenty of power to finish turns, rail hardpack turns, and push your speed limits without getting wibbly, wobbly, or even weebly.
Just under 100mm underfoot, the ARV W is big enough to handle powder days, especially since it boasts Armada's AR Nose Rocker early rise tip, which helps it plane over powder and chop for a smooth, floaty ride that's predictable and easy to turn in pretty much any condition. If the laminates and carbon wasn't enough of a stiff/light combo for you, then you'll be stoked on the AR50 hybrid cap and sidewall construction, which uses a lightweight cap in the tip and tail, but powerful sidewalls under the foot to help drive the 2.2mm Impact Edges into the snow when you're opening up the throttle. It's fast as microwave cookies, too, courtesy of the Comp Series sintered base, which is Armada's speediest offering, so you'll be able to put some snacks in the nuculator, knock out five or six quick laps, come back to gobble down some fresh treats, and hit the hill again without breaking a sweat.
