Our thoughts

“Similar to the ARV 96, the ARV 86 leans more towards its freestyle origins. This ski is stacks of fun and makes you want to hunt out those little poppy side piste kickers. This is my go to ski when I want to just tear the piste up and make the mountain my own personal playground. so much fun!” – Gav
