Armada's ARVTi is designed as a hard-charger with top and bottom titanal layers, intended to mow down the mountain and any terrain. Its AR Nose Rocker technology is built to lift the ski's tips up and over the bumpy stuff and powder, for enhanced floatation and maneuverability. It also has Carbon fiber strips promoting the playfulness Armada is known for, designed to keep it useful on the days when you don't need as much burliness out of the ski. For something similar but a bit skinnier, check out the El Rey. The ARVti is part of Armada's All Mountain Freestyle series, which focuses on skis that are designed to get the job done not only in the park, but also on the rest of the mountain. For park skiers who like to make real turns, and only have the budget for one pair of sticks, this is one of Armada's best. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.
