The ARVw is Armada's softest women's ski, designed to float over powder with its AR Nose Rocker technology while staying locked on the ground when you want with its thick 2.2 Impact Edges. CK Stringers (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) are constructed to give the ski pop, and Carbon Fiber Layup strips are designed to add even more liveliness for more playful terrain. Comp Series Bases, made of Armada's fastest base material, alongside the Hybrid Ultralight Core, are designed to let this thing fly all over the mountain with ease. The ARVw is part of Armada's Women's series, which focuses on skis for chicks that rip. AR50 sidewalls (except in the Cantika) are built to decrease swing weight and Laminate Matrix integrates layered fiberglass, designed for an optimal flex pattern. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.
