Product Info

Armada designed The Alpha 1 for makin' moves. Its Comp Base gives the Alpa 1 extra speed from hit to hit, which combined with a five dimensional EST Park Rocker means no hang-ups and huge amplitude. The construction provides for a super tight turning radius and low swing weight makes the Armada Alpha 1 Skis spin like a top - definitely a ski for park riders who like to lead the pack.

Product Details

Rocker Type

EST Park RockerThe next level. Subtle rocker in the tips and tails with positive camber underfoot. This enhances carving while also disengaging the tip and tail to create a catch-free feel that’s ideal for buttering and nose and tail presses.


Flex PatternTip: 6, Waist: 7, Tail: 6.5 (1=soft; 10=stiff)


Tapered Tip and Tail5 dimension ski with the tip and tail narrower than the contact points

Dimensions (tip/contact point/waist/contact point/tail)94/111/81/100/85 mm (170), 95/112/82/101/86 mm (176), 96/113/83/102/87 (182)


Hybrid Triple Zone CoreThree high density wood stringers sit along ultra light wood for a powerful, durable core with explosive energy return. Triple Zone cores resist compression without creating unnecessary weight.


Laminate MatrixDeliberate directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity and allows each ski's flex to be precisely tuned. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex; Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski; Tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski.

CK StringerCarbon Kevlar combo stringers lie on top of the laminate matrix along the tail to brace the ski. This increases the landing platform, especially when weight is distributed farther back in the ski than intended. It also gives the ski more pop and extends ski life.


AR50 Sidewall ConstructionABS sidewall meets cap construction – the best of both worlds. This engineering method combines the lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot, resulting in enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.


Comp Series BaseA World Cup-inspired base that requires higher maintenance than the S7, the Comp Series pays for the extra TLC it requires in one way: Speed.


2.5 Impact EdgeThis edge has an oversized height and width, and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness, which helps resist breaking and tearing out from rails, ledges and any other abuse it might meet.

High Performance, Yet Playful


from Stevens Pass

Comments about Armada Alpha 1 Skis 2013:

The Alpha 1 feels like more of a mid fat all mountainski than a park ski. With a super quick turn radius and soft tip and tail, it's not only a surfy ski but also performs extremely well on hard pack.

Comments about Armada Alpha 1 Skis 2013:

Fun frontside groomer ski. Turns tight and fast but playful and poppy when you want to mess around on the sides. Stiff so it can handle some chop but not great in variable snow.

Comments about Armada Alpha 1 Skis 2013:

The Alpha is a very stable and stiff park ski that handles groomers very well. The rocker in the tips and tail make the ski have a shorter turning radius but makes it uneasy on icy conditions. The alpha is very durable on rails and jumps due to its ar50 construction.
