Armada ARV 86 Skis · 2023
Full tip/tail rocker and true twin tip design! This options really shines in the park! 86mm underfoot with plenty of pop underfoot, smooth edge to edge transitions, and easier to get your spins around! Balanced flex rating in tips and tails and symmetrical build/shape is conducive to a more playful ride!
A park inspired freeride/freestyle ski that boasts a medium flex and a AR Freestyle rocker with plenty of camber, allowing the ski to go beyond the park. Killer in trees, moguls, and side hits.
Armada ARW 86 Skis · Women's · 2023
The ARW 86 is a fantastic mid stiff ski designed for freestyle both in the park and all mountain. Smooth flex keeps the ski very responsive and agile in the bumps and variable snow. Narrow all-mountain profile means this ski is great on hardpack, in the bumps or trees, and can handle some occasional powder days! If you're ready to build skills in the park or just like a freestyle ski this is the one for you!
The Armada ARW 86 is ready to tackle the park, but still has enough character and grit to rip groomers and slip off-piste as well. It has a softer, yet consistent flex through the whole ski that makes jibbing in the park and hitting rails a breeze.
These are a wood core easy turning ski! Great for a lady looking to ski in the terrain parks. These have a rocker camber rocker shape. Making these very fun all over the mountain. 86m underfoot is great for ripping around hard pack runs.
Armada ARW 84 R (Long) Skis + EM10 Bindings · Women's · 2023
Coming in at 84mm underfoot, these thrive on the groomed trails but still have enough width and stability for the choppier days. Slightly softer in the tips and tails while pretty stiff underfoot makes them perfect for playing around in the park, hitting jumps and working on some tricks while they still feel nice and solid underfoot with good edgehold when you're out carving on the trails! And to help with durability in the park these come with thicker edges so you can hit rails in the park all day long without worrying about your skis!
Great lighter ski for transitioning from groomers into powder. Perfect for getting more comfortable on the mountain and is versatile in all parts of the hill!
Armada Tracer 98 Skis · 2022
An all-terrain rocker means gives the float needed on deeper days/nights but camber underfoot means the edge will provide edge-hold for carving fast, smooth, GS turns. They are also super light so they won't slow down any park progression. Good for literally everything: carve down those groomers, slash pow, and hit/land switch.
Armada Trace 108 Skis · Women's · 2021
Armada has burst onto the backcountry scene with their Trace line. A very lightweight Caruba wood core is combined with their Adaptive Mesh to add stability and reduce chatter. These skis run 108mm underfoot and weigh in at 6.5 lbs for the pair.
Armada Tracer 88 Skis · 2022
The Tracer line from Armada is their ultralight touring line made of caruba wood in the core for optimal off piste performance. The Tracer 88 sheds weight in all the right places and will keep you moving fast uphill no matter the vertical you're trying to accomplish. This ski has a Ti (titanal) plate under the binding to reinforce stiffness in the ski for optimal downhill performance. 1225g per ski. Super light!
An awesome, lightweight, all-terrain ski. These skis come with Armada's lightest Caruba Core and 1.7 lightweight edge, making them very easy to turn and maneuver through any terrain. At 88 mm wide, these skis will also hold up well at high speeds, keeping you stable overall.
Armada Trace 88 Skis · Women's · 2018
This ski is light and fun to bring in the powder while the titanal laminate allows it to be quick and snappy when needed. One of the things that I love about Armada, is that they build their skis with the same construction for men and women. That often means that the women's skis hold up better than similar brands for taller, heavier, and/or stronger women. This ski is going to be a lot of fun when making quick turns, getting into powder, and when you are just cruising.
