Product Info

The days of shrink it and pink it are over. The fact is, people come in all shapes and sizes. And some of those people, in all of those sizes, are very good at skiing. Making hard charging skis that only fit bigger people never made much sense in the first place, so Armada want to even out the playing field. The Armada Short Pants Paradox Skis aren't women's skis, men's skis, or kids skis. These are big mountain skis that only come in a 168 or a 176. If those sound like nice lengths to you, and you like the sound of high speed fall line rippin' on a stable, playful platform, then there's really no paradox about it.

Product Details

Rocker Type

EST Freeride RockerForebody rocker and extra tip taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber under foot with no tail rocker ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.


Flex (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)Tip: 7 | Mid: 6 | Tail: 9


Pin Tip


Caruba CoreArmada's lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required for descending in the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in its quest to be ultralight.


AR100 SidewallSuperior edge grip for precision on the hardest of snow surfaces.


Comp Series BaseSintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.


2.1 All-Mountain EdgeHeat treated and built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability, this edge gives the best balance of durability and feel of Armada's whole collection.

Additional Features

Smear Tech TailA 3D beveled base in the tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self-centering in deep snow, and uncatchable on takeoffs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left, or right.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
