Boost mode engaged. The narrowest and stiffest ski in the ARV Series, the ARV 88 has a Poplar Core paired with w3Dgewall construction to provide maximum edge hold and pop in the gnarliest conditions from rutted-out inruns to icy pipe walls. Featuring more camber and a shorter turn radius underfoot, the ARV 88 has a more traditional turn shape and feel compared to other ARVs, while an elongated turn radius in the tip and tail eliminates any hooky behavior on takeoffs and landings. Competition proven park performance and Armada’s most durable construction to date mean the ARV 88 is prepared to take a beating and is ready to send.

Jake Renner tested this product
The ARV 88 is a true park ski, full tip and tail rocker aids with landing and hitting features while switch. The narrower waist at 88mm offers a ski that is easy to get your rotations around with and really at home while sliding rails. Good amount of pop while jumping and relatively light swing weight keeps this ski ripping.... Read more
Ideal for
  • Loads of camber underfoot provides a bit more pop when jumping and edge hold when carving
  • At 88mm underfoot and full tip and tail rocker equates to a ski that can spin easily while in the air
  • ARV 88 is a peak park performance ski, catered to freestyle skiing- terrain park, jumps, rails, halfpipe
Not ideal for
  • Not as quick of an edge to edge transition or turn radius as other skis this narrow

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.

Jared helped me get insight on my first snowboard purchase
5 /5
Started snowboarding this year and am determined to get real better at it. I've rented multiple times at big bear and have gone to whistler, but I've always wanted to get my own gear. When looking online and looking at various brands and sizes, it can be overwhelming for someone newer like me. It was great to speak with a specialist and get real time feedback, including video and audio. Jared was super approachable and helped me pick my first snowboard/bindings. Thanks Jared brotha, keep up the great work!

5 /5
I started exploring Curated with Andrew well before I was ready to buy. I let Andrew know I wasn’t in a position to buy right out of the gate, but that didn’t deter him from being as helpful as possible. I even had a few rounds of re-doing my selections, and I never felt like I was being a bother. Question after question, he had answers for me and follow up questions to ensure he was giving me the best information possible. I can’t review the board itself yet, but I have COMPLETE faith in my selection based on all the conversation between Andrew and I. It sounds like we frequent the same resort, so I hope I get the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person!
