Description

The Armada ARW 106 UL is the evolution of the long-sought one-ski quiver for the shredder who does a little bit of everything. An ultra-light Caruba Core lowers the swingweight and keeps things light when boosting airs or hitting the bootpack to get that secret stash. The Smear Tech base's edgeless beveled tips and tails help the ski effortlessly float in powder and charge through crud without deflecting while enabling a surfy feel and catch-free butters. With sizes going up to 180 and 188, you can expect plenty of your guy friends looking for versatile performance with a unique, ultra-light construction to pick these up as well. Chase powder, lap the park, carve up groomers and slay the bumps. The ARW 106 UL is ready for anything.

CARUBA CORE

Armada's lightest wood species creates the best up-hill feel while retaining the power and dampness required in descending the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no conessions in performance in its quest to be ultra-light.

Smear Tech

3D beveled base creates stability and float while sliding forwards, backwards, left or right.

2.5 IMPACT EDGE

This edge exists for one reason: it's durable. The 2.5 impact edge is designed to resist breaking and tearing out from frock, rail and whatever other abuse it might meet.

S7 BASE

The S7 is Armada's toughest base. It clearly displays base graphics and requires minimal maintenance for park-specific and Fleet Series skis.

AR75 SIDEWALL

25% more ABS sidewall coverage increases stability and reduces chatter, providing more predictability and confidence.

On average, your skis should fall somewhere between your chin and forehead when held upright. There are a few additional details that play a significant role in determining which ski size is best fit for you. After consulting the size chart, be sure to consider your weight, skill level, skiing style and the type of terrain you’ll be frequenting.

Here are some reasons for sizing up or down:

Weight

  • Size up if you are closer to the high end of your weight range or above average weight for your height.
  • Size down if you are closer to the low end of your weight range or below average weight for your height.

Skill Level and Style

  • Size up if you are an advanced/expert skier who prefers to be fast and aggressive in style.
    • Longer skis tend to have a more stable feel.
  • Size down if you are a beginner/intermediate skier who prefers skiing at a more leisurely pace with quick turns.
    • Shorter skis offer higher overall manoeuverability.

Terrain

  • Size up if you love to explore the backcountry. Most off-piste skiers lean towards longer skis.
  • Size down if you prefer carving your way down a well-groomed mountain or hard pack snow.
