Armada Alpha X Skis 2014

Alpha: Superior, best, most powerful. That sounds about right for the Armada Alpha X Skis. Overhauled for 2014, the Alpha X now features a wider platform for increased stability. The tip and tail were also popped, locked and dropped low-rider style for better control while maintaining the light swing weight of the EST Park Rocker. Add a super fast Comp Series Base and light yet poppy Triple Zone core and you've got a ski that's ready to huck the smoothest spins off the biggest booters.
Rocker Type
EST Park Rocker - Some next level shizzz. 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
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Tip - 6, Waist - 7, Tail - 6.5
 
Sidecut
Five-Point Shape - Sizes - 164 cm/170 cm/176 cm/182 cm: Tip - 107 mm/108 mm/109 mm/110 mm, Contact Point - 119 mm/120 mm/121 mm/122 mm, Waist - 92 mm/93 mm/94 mm/95 mm, Contact Point - 109 mm/110 mm/111 mm/112 mm, Tail - 99 mm/100 mm/101 mm/102 mm
Shape
Tapered tip and tail
Core
Hybrid Triple Zone Core - Three high-density wood stringers
 
Laminates
Laminate Matrix - Directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.
CK Stringer - Carbon and Kevlar stringers are used in the tail to add pop and extend life.
Sidewalls
AR50 Sidewall - With cap in the tip and tail and sidewall under foot, this construction balances performance characteristics for lower swing-weight and increased durability.
Base
Comp Series Base - Armada's fastest base
Edges
2.5 Impact Edge - Oversized and specially heat-treated, built to resist impact damage
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Park & Pipe
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Carbon, Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
