The Armada Makai Skis are the mini version of its mama, Armada's ARW. Still the same quality material, but packed in a smaller, more sass per square inch frame. This is an all-mountain ski that's sure to give your kiddo a ride they'll love. The Makai will make Disneyland a thing of the past, and your nearest mountain the happiest place on earth.
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: 3, Waist: 5, Tail: 4 (1 = soft; 10 = stiff)
Fleet Core Laminated wood core with 2 high density wood stringers, and with a slow sidewall taper to 45 degrees toward the tips and tails. This eases entry and exit into and out of turns for lighter riders.
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.
2.5 Impact Edge This 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.
