Armada El Rey Skis 2014

All Hail the King! The Armada El Rey Skis rule the entire mountain with their strong yet forgiving fiberglass-capped wood core. With Positive Camber and a Carbon / Kevlar stringer in the trunk, the El Reys are super nimble and responsive. Shred the peaks and the parks with these bad boys from Armada.
Rocker Type
Positive Camber - None of this rocker nonsense. 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 hold. It basically lets you go really big.
 
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Tip - 7, Waist - 8, Tail - 7.5
 
Core
Fleet Core - Torsion sock-wrapped wood core
 
Laminates
CK Stringer - Carbon and Kevlar stringers are used in the tail to add pop and extend life.
Laminate Matrix - Directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.
Sidewalls
Cap Construction
Base
S7 Base - Durable and low maintenance, with a speed additive for quickness
Edges
2.5 Impact 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: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for skis offering skiers lots of edge hold, especially on harder snow. A cambered ski has a smooth arch underfoot and contact points near the tip and tail when unweighted. Camber skis excel at carving on hard snow; you won’t ever see a ski racer on anything other than cambered skis.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: 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.
