Traditional camber and laminate sidewall construction make the ARV a reliable all mountain ski. Its mid-fat platform and double zone core produce the even balance desired between lively edge to edge snap, and the stability needed for long arc’d turns.
This edge has an oversized height and width and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness which helps resist breaking and tearing out from rails, ledges and any other abuse it might meet.
We know from the core out exactly how each ski should react, so three kinds of fiberglass laminates are used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex. Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski. The permutations of the three fiberglasses are nearly limitless and allow us to precision tune the performance of every ski we make.
As the name implies, the 50/50 is faster than the S7 and more rugged than the Comp Series.
Traditional camber engages the tip and tail of the ski, enhancing ease of entry and exit into and out of a turn, while maintaining solid edge hold.
Double Zone Core
Two high density wood stringers sit along ultralight wood creating a light core with pop and solid edge hold, while keeping swing and overall weight down.
Two strips of ABS material lie directly alongside the core and over the ski’s edges, providing solid edge hold, core protection, and stability.
