The Armada ARW 96 Women's 2023 Skis are made for the intermediate skier who wants to start to take flight in the park and on natural features. This ski opens up a world anew a place where everything becomes a jump or a rail. The Armada ARW 96 Women's 2023 will also have solid ski-ability in the groomed snow as it has camber underfoot.

Key Features:

  • Twin Tip Rocker – The tips of the skis curve up on both tip and tail; making it easy to ski and land backward. This also makes it easier to spin the skis.
  • Poplar Ash Core – Lightweight poplar core combined with compact ash wood creates a very responsive and playful ski.
  • Sintered Base – Is more durable and holds wax very well for a longer time, allowing for faster speeds.
  • 2.5 Impact Edge – This is quite large and treated with heat, making this edge very durable. It will withstand impacts easily.
  • Freestyle Stiffness – (1=soft,10=stiff) Tail:7, Mid:6, Tip:8. This flex pattern is great for popping off jumps and flexing the tips and tails for those "steezy" butters.

Fell apart after skiing them for 5 days

Originally posted at www.armadaskis.com on Jan 9, 2023
I bought the 2022 version of these skis back in December 2021. I was so excited to ski on them but they ended up not arriving until late so I did not get to begin skiing on them until December 2022. After the first day skiing on them the top sheet began to delaminate and peel off. I didn't think too much of it but after skiing on them a few more times both skis were showing signs of very poor quality. I reached out to Armada and Evo (the dealer who I bought them from) to see about a replacement or damage fixes but they ended up rejecting the warranty claim. The skis are now barely skiable as water is getting into the ski. I am very unhappy as I have always been very fond of Armada but this clearly displays a major quality issue, and was then very disappointed when Armada said that they warranty wouldn't go.

I got my my new skis 2 days before heading to Revelstoke, BC. The skis are light weight making my carving feel effortless. I could ski variable conditions easily. And they performed fantastic in fresh "cold smoke". Definitely a go to for all mountain ski.

If you are looking for gear and need something knowledgeable and patient, Tyler’s the guy
5 /5
I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Spencer helped me throughout the whole process of getting my perfect setup. Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

Great experience with Nate
5 /5
Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Gregory’s knowledge was clutch
5 /5
I really appreciated Gregory’s help. I would’ve been flying somewhat blind on my own. He probably saved me countless hours in internet research. I really appreciate his thoughtful recommendations, patience, and guidance through the process. I feel great about the choices I made and can’t wait to shred with my new gear 🏂

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Spencer was super responsive and patient while I was trying to work from home but also purchased new snowboard gear. I had a lot of specifics I wanted to see with a new snowboard, bindings, and boots. Spencer was extremely knowledgeable and created a video to help me work through my available choices. Thank you for your honesty and experience. I can’t wait to go riding!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!

Franky made my re entry to boarding not only easy after 15 years. He made it fun. And he got me a killer deal on a 2024 board! Hope to see ya out there some day Frankie!!!!!!
5 /5
If you don't know. Ask. I was clueless cuz the tech has changed since I stated. Frankie helped me get the exact board I wanted for the kind of terrain I was headed to. These are people who know what they are talking about. And are more than friendly. I got a collection of curated boards and all were winners. Only 1 came home.

I’ve been contemplating buying skis for over a year now and reached out to Bernard initially. A year and some later I was finally ready to bite the bullet. I messaged Bernard again hoping he would respond and give me a few more up-to-date suggestions and he responded immediately!! I was so appreciative as the thought of shopping for skis is so time consuming and such an investment!
