Take it up a notch.

Fresh from Armada's oven, the ARVw Women's Ski is tastier than an apple pie and more crowd-pleasing than a fresh pan of brownies. It doesn't taste as good, but it'll definitely shred way harder than 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 without carrying a single unnecessary ounce. Armada also built the ARVw 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 weebly.

At nearly 100mm underfoot, the ARVw 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 conditions. If the laminates and carbon wasn't enough of a stiff/light combo for you, get stoked about the ARVw's 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.

Having skied both the TSTw and the VJJ 2.0 I think this ARVw is a nice compromise between these two models. It’s an incredibly nimble all-mountain ski that suits ladies who crave speed and stability. In terms of flex, this ski is softer than both the VJJ and the TSTw.
The AR Nose Rocker shape on the ARVw gives you traditional sidecut profile with a bit of tip rocker to help with flotation on softer days, this skis also features camber underfoot, lending excellent carving ability and control over edge hold. The 2015 ARVw is 131mm in the tip, 97mm underfoot and 121mm in the tail with a turn radius of 18.5m for the 168cm length.
Skiing groomers up at Alta on the ARVw I found this ski was more reliable at high speed on groomers than either the VJJ or the TST and I enjoyed throwing out both short and long radius turns and felt no chatter or vibrations. The narrower 97mm waist lent itself well to carving and I found it more forgiving than the TST in moguls or chopped up snow. I found that the Carbon Kevlar stringers in the tail added noticeably more stability when compared to the VJJ or the TSTw.

I skied an absolutely perfect untracked powder line over in the Devil’s Castle on the ARVw and though the VJJ boasts better flotation, I was not left feeling disappointed in any way as I made my final turns down the Castle. This ski is incredibly versatile and will make an awesome quiver ski for ladies who demand performance across all categories.
I am an aggressive skier at 5’3” and 120 lbs and I prefer the 168cm length.

Lexi,

Have you tried any other skis with similar underfoot from Volkl or Rossignol? If so how did they compare to this ski? Turning radius shorter or longer than this ski?

Hey EJ,

I haven't tried a Rossi ski in a couple years.
I also spent a chunk of time on the 2015 Volkl Aura back in April.
It's a bit fatter at 100mm underfoot, and the full rocker shape has a different feel than the cambered ARVw.

I would say that the Aura holds up better in firm snow and lends more stability at higher speed, despite the rocker shape. The Arvw is a lot more playful and snappy, where the Aura likes to charge and prefers bigger radius turns.
