Armada TST (Travis Steeger) Skis 2012

Armada TST (Travis Steeger) Skis 2012: The Armada TST (Travis Steeger) Skis are an all-mountain/big-mountain tool designed to let you explore the entire mountain, air the biggest cliffs, ski the deepest pow and carve the deepest turns. With Armada’s patented EST All-Mountain Rocker that boasts a progressive tip rocker and no tail rocker, there isn’t a turn or jump on the mountain the TST can’t make. This was the ski Travis Steeger envisioned, so next time you find yourself in the middle of a great day, or on a perfect run, un-zip your coat, smile from ear to ear and giv’er for Travis. A portion of the proceeds of the TSTw Skis are donated to Travis Steeger’s Memorial Fund and “Avalanche Awareness Beyond the Boundaries Society.”
Shape
Armada’s patented EST All-Mountain Rocker boasts a progressive tip rocker for flotation in soft snow with positive camber underfoot and in the tail for more stability at high speeds and edge hold on hard pack.
This is a 4-dimension ski where the widest point at the tip is set back closer to the bindings for a tip that easily rises and is hook-free in powder, while the rest of the ski performs well on all snow conditions with traditional sidecut.
Construction
With an AR50 side wall, the ABS sidewall meets Cap construction, combining lightweight Cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot resulting in enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.
The TST has a 1.7 edge, with the height and width deliberately smaller and the steel heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight.
The 50/50 base is faster than Armada’s S7 base but more rugged than the Comp series, perfect for wider skis.
The Laminate Matrix consists of three kinds of fiberglass laminates used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity needed in the appropriate places.
A blend of Carbon/Kevlar stringers run along the tail of the ski to stabilize it, creating a better landing platform, increased snap and added pop.
Flex
The Hybrid UltraLight core is made up of select 375kg/m3 wood stringers that have unusually high strength-to-weight ratios so the TST maintains a light but stable feel. ABS layers are pre-installed alongside the core directly underfoot to concentrate the weight of the ski below the boot sole to increase durability and lower swing weight.
Flex Pattern: tip - 6, waist - 7, tail - 6.5 (out of 10)

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
