The Armada Bantam Skis were designed with the youngest shredders in mind. The traditional camber gives the Bantam tip to tail edge grip, while a soft overall flex lets turns come easily. Just like kids, these skis may be mini, but The Armada Bantam was built with the durability to play all day. The Bantam comes with all the technical features necessary for your little rugrats to bomb down slopes, keep up with siblings, and maybe even teach you a thing or two....
Positive Camber Traditional 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 control.
Softer Flex Puts less demand on technique to keep your youngster in control
Flex Pattern Tip: 2, Waist: 4, Tail: 3 (1 = soft; 10 = stiff)
InjectZone Core Foam injected core that is lightweight, responsive yet dampens out harsh hits from rails, and hard landings
Laminate Matrix Deliberate 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.
CAP Construction This method 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.
S7 Base Armada's toughest base is durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness.
1.7 Impact Edge The edge height and width is deliberately smaller and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight.
