Bantam Skis – Youth 2011: The Coda’s younger sibling. An all-mountain twin-tip for grommets, the Armada
Bantam Ski is designed to encourage experimentation and built to be grown into.
The Positive Camber engages the tip and tail of the ski, enhancing ease of entry and exit into and out of a turn, while maintaining solid edge hold
Dimensions: Tip: 90mm (105) / 93mm (115) / 95mm (125)
Waist: 68mm (all sizes)
Tail: 84mm (105) / 86mm (115) / 88mm (125)
Cap Construction wraps the wood core with composite fiberglass layers creating a torsion box. The base assembly is inserted into the mold, then the fiberglass wrapped core and top material are added. A variable slant between the base and topsheet creates a super-durable and light ski with a balanced flex. The toughest base, you can find the S7 on any ski that’s looking for rails, ledges, and boxes as much as snow
The 1.7 edge height and width is deliberately smaller and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight.
A soft flex index combines with an InjectZone Core to help beginning riders to learn to carve the whole mountain. 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. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski.
Tip: 2, Waist: 4, Tail: 3 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Requires a binding brake width between 70mm and 80mm
