Product Info

With the Armada Alpha X Skis, stability isn't underrated. It's not always about the effortless butters, but about crushing bigger jumps, takeoffs, or the rest of the mountain. Combine a stiffer core with a faster base and Armada s innovative EST Park Rocker, and you have an insanely versatile ski both in the jump line and on the mountain. Plus, who can deny the red, green, and gold topsheets? Yes Bad Mon, the Armada Alpha X is a bad ski.

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 switch take offs.

Flex

FlexTip - 6, Waist - 7, Tail - 6.5 (1 = Softest, 10 = Stiffest)

Sidecut

5 - Dimension Sidecut

Core

Hybrid Triple Zone CoreThree high density wood stringers

Laminates

Carbon Kevlar StringersCarbon and Kevlar stringers used in the tail to add pop and extend life

Laminate MatrixDirectional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.

Sidewalls

AR50 SidewallCap in the tip and tail, sidewall under foot - balancing performance characteristics with lower swing-weight and increased durability.

Base

Comp BaseArmada's fastest base

Edges

2.5 EdgeOversized 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.

Comments about Armada Alpha X Skis 2015:

These skis are wonderful! I just took them out west for the first time, skied at vail and Breckinridge. They held up nice on groomers and in fresh pow they're loads of fun! Perfect width for a little off trail/deep pow capabilities! So happy that I purchased these skis!
