Product Info

Updated for the 2014/2015 season, the Armada El Rey Skis are back again. With a shorter turn radius and slightly softer core, the El Rey is more nimble than ever. Armada's cap construction keeps weight down, while the S7 base and 2.5 impact edges are built burly for lapping the park. For a light weight and nimble ski that doesn't fork you over on durability, look no further than the Armada El Rey Skis, whether you're hitting the park for the first time or throw down on the daily.

    Comments about Armada El Rey Skis 2015:

    I have had these skis for four years and they have held up so well. Those four years have included multiple trips around the states and Europe and I still have yet to get a core shot, cracked edge, delamination, or other damage of any kind. They have held up and every condition thrown at them from fresh snow to the late season water skiing. I would recommend to anyone who wants a fun, playful ski that will take them where they want to go. I'm about 5'7" now and ski that 164, which is getting slightly short, but still a great ski.

      Really good skis, I'm a bigger guy and I got them at 178 and there perfect for my size. Couldn't ask for a better ski for the price.
