Meet the jack-of-all-trades, master of fun. With a slightly softer flex than previous ARVs, the 94 is balanced to excel when buttering and pressing with plenty of stability and pop to confidently send it on the pro line. The ultralight Caruba Core keeps weights low and is combined with an Ash binding insert and unique w3Dgewall construction to maximize durability and create a better performing, longer lasting ski. The AR Freestyle Rocker in the tips and tails virtually eliminates hang ups on rutted out lips and landings while adding a touch of all-conditions versatility for exploring the rest of the mountain. The ARV 94 is the multi-tool of freestyle skis, ready for anything and built to last.

Leo Cocchiara tested this product
I was so excited that Armada decided to split out the ARVs into 94 and 100 waist width options after years of loving my own pair of ARV 96s. The 94s in particular are super fun for any skier looking for a ski that can handle all mountain, all conditions and really excel in the park, trees, and moguls. It... Read more

The ARV 96 has more pop than any ski I’ve been on this season! That’s why I decided to buy one for myself. The shape and profile of the ARV 94 lends itself to playful freeskiers who want something that can take on the entire mountain (except on powder days). Its low swing weight makes it easy to throw around,... Read more

People love Curated Experts

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.

Leo moved me from unsure and indecisive to fully outfitted with a shop nearby to assist, and he did it at a great price. There's no doubt he's an expert, which helped me get passed the endless options in buying skis, and he did it without any pressure to make a final purchase. I did make the purchase and I'll be back in the future.
