Boost mode engaged. The narrowest and stiffest ski in the ARV Series, the ARV 88 has a Poplar Core paired with w3Dgewall construction to provide maximum edge hold and pop in the gnarliest conditions from rutted-out inruns to icy pipe walls. Featuring more camber and a shorter turn radius underfoot, the ARV 88 has a more traditional turn shape and feel compared to other ARVs, while an elongated turn radius in the tip and tail eliminates any hooky behavior on takeoffs and landings. The ARV 88 is competition-proven and ready to send.

The Upside:

- Competition Ready
Narrower widths and a stiffer tuned chassis reduce swing weight, boost pop, and provide lively responses for the biggest tricks.

- Art by David Alabo
ARV Series skis feature iconic artwork from David Alabo that explores surrealist futurism through intricately immersive design.

- Frontside Weapon
Dimensions and construction are tailored to slice and dice firmer conditions. Quick edge-to-edge with an energetic snap between turns.

Tech Features:

- AR Freestyle Rocker
Rockered tips and tails are combined with positive camber underfoot to allow the ski to charge easily through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.

- Poplar Core
Stability, power, and pop are guaranteed with the 100% Poplar Core. For those seeking predictability and smoothness, the Poplar Core delivers in all snow conditions.

- Ash Binding Insert
A sustainable binding insert that provides superior screw retention.

- 2.5 Impact Edge
Oversized and specially heat treated, this edge is built to resist impact damage in the most demanding situations.

- S7 Base
A sintered base optimized for speed, durability, and wax retention.

- W3Dgewell
The w3Dgewall is a 3D molded, injected sidewall that’s angled where it joins the wood core. During ski construction, this creates a mechanical bond in the mold and a more uniform connection between the sidewall and core. With more material in strategic areas and a three-dimensional taper in the tip and tail, the w3Dgewall balances ideal performance characteristics with reduced weights.

Intended use: Freestyle, All Mountain
