Armada ARV 96 Skis with Bindings
The Armada ARV 96 skis with bindings sits at the pinnacle of all-mountain freestyle. Bringing Armada's classic playful DNA to something a bit more versatile, the ARV 96 skis with bindings is the ultimate tool for freeride and park skiers looking for something with which they can make the mountain their playground. Whether you're skiing in a slopestyle contest or just cruising around with your buddies, the ARV 96 skis with bindings loves it all. A Poplar and Ash wood core keeps the ski feeling lively and energetic, while partial sidewall construction provide control and edge hold. Add in Armada's AR Freestyle Rocker and you get a ski that is tremendously versatile and playful. Thanks to Armada's 2.5 Impact edge and partial cap in the tip and the tail, the ARV 96 skis with bindings remains durable and intact despite the relatively destructive demands of its core demographic. Whether your sliding rails, going big on jumps or searching for natural jibs at your resort, Armada has got you covered with a durable and reliable ski. It's safe to say that even the most dedicated park skiers still enjoy skiing the entire mountain, or at least enjoying a run down to the park, and the Armada ARV 96 skis with bindings provides a well-balanced blend of freestyle and all-mountain characteristics for those skiers looking for more than just a traditional park and pipe ski.

If you include your bsl and no other directions, we'll mount them on the recommended (not center) line. You can indicate center if you wish, or indicate no mount, or just leave bsl field blank if you want the bindings separately.
Those would get the 95mm brake, even though the skis are 96mm under foot that 95mm brake on the Attack will fit.
Out of the three skis listed, we would highly recommend the Atomic Bent Chetler 100. This is an extremely versatile ski with no real weaknesses. can carve, float, grip, smear, pivot and do just about any turn shape at any speed. Very approachable, and just the right amount of stiffness for a true one ski quiver. At your height and weight, go with the 188 cm length.
We're a few days between time of order to shipping due to volume. We're in Vermont on the East Coast, so it can take up to six business days to get across the country.
The thing that I like the most about the ARV is the burliness. It's got some beef to it for sure, and this makes it a slightly better choice for a wide range of applications like you're looking for. From all-mountain skiing to park and pipe, I think the ARV does it all quite well. K2 Poacher and Nordica Unleashed 98 also come to mind as strong skis and choices. Have fun!
