Armada s Tantrum Skis are for sure going to make mom and dad jealous. Powder becomes playtime with all the power and edgehold of a camber ski, but bumped up three notches of awesomeness with a tip rocker for effortless floatation. The Armada Tantrum is a great all-mountain ski for the kid who wants to do everything, all the time, and isn't afraid to stray off the groomed. Not getting your junior ripper these skis might be the reason for them throwing a tantrum, or at least a hissy fit!
EST All Mountain Rocker Tip rocker with positive camber under foot and no tail rocker. Promotes flotation in the soft snow while giving the ski great drive and edge hold on the hard pack.
Flex Pattern Tip: 6, Waist: 7, Tail: 6.5 (1=soft; 10=stiff)
Tapered Tip Tip width is narrower than width at contact point
Dimensions (tip/contact point/waist/tail) 117/127/98/117 mm (138), 118/128/99/118 mm (147), 119/129/100/120 mm (156)
Hybrid Ultralight Core Ultralight core using select wood stringers that have unusually high strength-to-weight ratios, UltraLight cores allow our widest skis to maintain a light-yet-stable feel.
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.
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Armada Tantrum Skis - Youth 2013:
These are amazing skis. They ride great and float amazing on powder. They also carve surprisingly well on groomers if you're looking for a smooth fast groomer ride. I was so confident to do anything on them, from park to groomer, pow to ice. They grip well and let you float on powder like clouds. They worked wonders on ice that I would never expect from a wide ski. They were outstanding in every aspect.
