Product Info

The most versatile ski in Armada s women's line, the TSTw performs just as well on hard-packed corduroy as it does in fresh pow. The 100 mm waist width and EST All Mtn Rocker allow the ski to easily initiate a turn, while the positive camber underfoot offers excellent edgehold and stability. Additionally, the rockered tip provides plenty of flotation on those awesomely deep storm days. Due to the lightweight core, the TSTw also makes for a great resort-backcountry hybrid ski when paired with a touring binding. If you often find yourself in search of uncompromising skis that truly do it all, the Armada TSTw Skis are for you.

    Comments about Armada TSTw Skis - Women's 2016:

    I demoed these at a pretty clear, hard pack day at Canyons resort. Though I am a male skier (5'7" 150lbs) I skied these at the 165 length and loved them. I own Nordica Double 6 157cm skis and what an upgrade the Armadas were. Just before them I demoed a pair of Rossy 170cm and that was too much. More stable, held the edge, initiated easily and carved well. The small moguls present that day were no problem for the TST, but were limited in size and quantity. Unfortunately the powder was limited, but based on what I felt from the ski, it would have no problem floating in moderate amounts of powder and turning sharply though trees. As an intermediate skier (blues and blacks) I felt this ski would really help me progress as a skier. Though I am a male skier, I see no major difference between the men's and women's version of the TST (there are no listed differences in weight, width or turn radius). I would encourage anyone who gets a chance, to jump on these (men's or women's). The only reason for the four star is that I have trouble giving a perfect score, especially since I didn't get to test in all terrains and ski conditions.
