Manufacturers description
Think of the AR6 as a history lesson in park-specific ski design. Its DNA goes back seven years to
our very first prototypes and proves that the terrain park rivals the race course as skiing's premier
testing ground. After all, it takes the input of Armada-caliber park riders to marry an AR Core 1 to a
carbon kevlar tail stringer for a ski with unprecedented pop off the snow and durability throughout the
season. The 2.5 Impact Edge and S7 Base absorb abuse without significant decline in performance,
and the ABS construction is our most bomb-proof. Armada didn't invent the park-specific ski; with the
AR6, we perfected it.

Strenghts:
All mtn park & pipe - great ski. As advertised - top to bottom. Can carve and hold on hardpack. So you can ski to the park or pipe, ski the mountain abd back down to the lift all day. Steeps no problem unless you wreck them in the park. Sidewall construction so you can tune /keep it sharp for hardpack and in shape for rails/tables. Wood core has good vibration absorption and therefore base takes wax better than cap skis. Skied whistler/blackcomb did everything well. Good in crud. Good for takeoffs. Solid on landings. Good in the trees. Nice, consistent and predictable.

Weaknesses:
This is a great all-rounder but if you want a specialty ski like a fat powder ski or a race or mogul ski - the specialty skis will be better. I tried it on GS course but blew out in the ruts. Not quick enough for moguls.

Summary:
I bought AR6 (2006-7) 176cm. I am 6'1" 185 lbs - still do some racing.. 181 would be better for me on hardpack - more edge, better for landings. Love it. Great if you only can have 1-ski. The ski was as advertised on the armada website.

Strenghts:
I have used it as almost exclusive pistachio and only have positive experiences of it!
Really good ice grip, it's not fluttery at higher speeds, easily welded. In the sneeze, just lean back and let the ski do the job.
As a park ski, I can not say so much because just jumping without tripping and racing on flat boxes, but it worked well.

Weaknesses:
Will be quite easy to scratch on the top, but who cares? :)

Summary:
Amazing skiing for the piste, the forest, the offpiste and the park.

Strenghts:
very light, good pop, soft, not particularly flattery.

Weaknesses:
Enjoyed easily on the edges of the top.

Summary:
Beautiful skis, perfect for rails and jumps. However, a little sad ride in the piste.

Imagine continuing with Armada Ar6 because they are so light and fit my ride style perfectly.

Strenghts:
to hope to play in the park e the really funny ski has unfortunately not tested it outside the piste anyway

Weaknesses:
gets very flattery, can not trust the ski so much in the piste

Summary:
so fun play the skis, but one day with the pussy guys, you'll be after having nothing at all fun, oh yes, going both will have to have a pistol skiing it's a bit too bad too. went on the salmon 1080 can only compare it with the salmon 1080 to it was much more stable on the slope. but not at all as fun in the park

have a rough winter in the hill
