Top 10 Men’s Park Skis 2010 Continued

EDITOR'S PICKS CONTINUED

#6 Armada- AR7


Editor's Pick Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the AR7 has arisen from the phenomenon that was the AR6. By widening the AR6’s waist and adding the AR50 sidewall (a blend of cap and sidewall construction) the AR7 gains improved stability and tracking while reducing the swing weight. More info

#7 Rossignol- S4 Jib


Editor's Pick Five X Games medals in 2010 can’t be wrong. The French duo of Kevin Rolland and Xavier Bertoni depend on Rossignol’s storied career as a top ski manufacturer to deliver top performance, and the S4 does just that in the park and pipe arena. More info

#8 Armada- Halo


Editor's Pick Armada pioneered the rockered park ski with the Alpha series, and the Halo continues that proud tradition. The five-dimension ski features EST Park Rocker, which subtly rockers the tips to create catch- free buttering and pressing, while maintaining normal camber underfoot to enhance carving and stability.
