With the Armada Alpha X Skis, stability isn't underrated. It's not always about the effortless butters, but about crushing bigger jumps, takeoffs, or the rest of the mountain. Combine a stiffer core with a faster base and Armada's innovative EST Park Rocker, and you have an insanely versatile ski both in the jump line and on the mountain. Plus, who can deny the red, green, and gold topsheets? Yes Bad Mon, the Armada Alpha X is a bad ski.
Rocker Type
EST Park Rocker - The next level. Subtle rocker in the tips and tails with positive camber underfoot. This enhances carving while also disengaging the tip and tail to create a catch-free feel that's ideal for buttering and switch take offs.
 
Flex
Flex - Tip - 6, Waist - 7, Tail - 6.5 (1 = Softest, 10 = Stiffest)
Sidecut
5 - Dimension Sidecut
Core
Hybrid Triple Zone Core - Three high density wood stringers
 
Laminates
Carbon Kevlar Stringers - Carbon and Kevlar stringers used in the tail to add pop and extend life
Laminate Matrix - Directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity
Sidewalls
AR50 Sidewall - Cap in the tip and tail, sidewall under foot - balancing performance characteristics with lower swing-weight and increased durability
Base
Comp Base - Armada's fastest base
Edges
2.5 Edge - Oversized and specially heat-treated, built to resist impact damage
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Park & Pipe
    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.
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • 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
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Aramid (Kevlar®), Carbon, 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.
