Product Info

With tip rocker, a traditional tail and camber under foot, the Armada Norwalk Skis can drive through a turn exit, charge in variable conditions, and stay stable while straightlining down the mountain. Slightly wider and with a larger turning radius than the TST, the Norwalk is Armada s big mountain destroyer.

    Comments about Armada Norwalk Skis 2014:

    If you like your JJs, this ski should be your next purchase! It charges, but still has the nimble feeling the JJ gave you! I was actually a lot more surprised it handled fairly the same but the no rocker in the tail pushes hard through the end of every turn! It's on in the deep stuff with the continued 115 waist, it's definitely not for the weak skier, but this big brother has a little brother called the TST. A little softer ski with a bit narrower waist at 102. Either way Armada has done right with every ski they've made. Truly the best ski company in the game and tops podiums all over the freeskiing WORLD!

        Great all terrain ski, accels in the pow and chop. Will go as fast as you wanna drive it and holds a solid edge. I actually love it on the groomers. The camber gives it awesome grip and rockets you from one turn to the next. The generous rocker keeps it surfy in softer snow while also preventing you from hooking an edge on hardpack. The Norwalk is the perfect blend of stiff and powerful with lightweight and playful. Mount em on the line with some Rossi FKS 180s, or maybe even Dynafits as it would be a great touring ski as well.

          I've used this ski in all conditions this year, from groomers to bringing them to Japan where it snowed 20 feet in 2 weeks. If you really want a one ski quiver than shreds the powder, this ski is a must have!

          Still looking for that one ski quiver... One that floats in the powder. Pounds through the crud. And will still rip on the groomers... I am not sure if this is the 'one ski quiver'
