Armada Locator 104 Skis 2024

Let's face it. Most people just don't have enough time, money, or garage space for a whole quiver of resort skis AND a whole quiver of touring skis. You might have some powder planks and a hard snow setup for the inbounds, but when it comes to touring skis, you're probably looking for one ski that can do it all. But doing it all in a place like the backcountry, which can grant you the deepest snow, the longest climbs, and the mankiest crud, sometimes all in the same lap, is no small feat. And that's exactly what the Armada Locator 104 Skis are built to do. Coming in at less than 1500 grams per ski, they're insanely lightweight for their size. Pair that with versatile waist width, burly construction, and playful-yet-serious shape, and these things are an incredible jack of all trades for the backcountry. Whether your touring day is long or short, deep or shallow, the Locator 104 is up for the challenge.

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

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

Core

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.

Laminates

TI Binding DampenerBelow the binding, a sandwich of rubber, titanal, and finally more rubber works to dampen vibration that otherwise chatters into your bots and shortens your day. Ski bell to bell with extra damping provided.

Carbon ReinforcementSpecially placed carbon stringers add pop and stiffness without adding weight.

Base

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

Edges

1.7 Lightweight EdgeLight and strong, these heat-treated edges effect the feel of the ski minimally to ensure a snappy, lightweight feel.

Additional Features

AR Bat Tail Self Center Tail Clip Design

Binding Compatibility

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

Atomic Shift MNC 13 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2024
