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.
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
