The BUBBA is Armada's widest ski, ranging up to 150 mm at its widest point. This is not your everyday ski, unless you happen to live in a helicopter in Alaska. This is a ski designed for bottomless powder runs and epic terrain. It's also Armada's most aggressively rockered ski, utilizing EST Powder Rocker technology, which is designed for effortlessly floating over the soft stuff with its minimal underfoot camber and huge tip and tail rocker profiles. The BUBBA is part of Armada's Deepest series, which focuses on powder skis. AR50 sidewalls are designed to decrease swing weight, Hybrid Ultralight Cores are stabilized through extra damp wood cores, Laminate Matrix integrates layered fiberglass, designed for an optimal flex pattern, and 1.7 edges, Armada's lightest edges, are built in to decrease weight while maintaining durability. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

BDog, Armada's second-softest park ski behind the EDOLLO, is designed as a quick and poppy park tool intended to rip beyond jumps and rails. This is understandably so from just a quick glance at the flowy style of pro skier Phil Casabon, who is the face behind this signature model. The BDog's turning radius, which ranges between 13.5 meters and 18 meters depending on length, is designed for a variety of turns, and the Hybrid Ultralight Core is designed to let this thing fly around the mountain. Its core technology is unique in Armada's Park series, and is more commonly seen in big powder skis intended for floating. Also unique to the BDog is its EST Park Rocker technology, which is manufactured to be much more dramatic than any of the other skis in Armada's Park Series, which all lie much more flat on the snow. The BDog also has extra thick 2.5 impact edges, designed for holding up on rails and other harsh obstacles. The BDog is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

Armada's ARVTi is designed as a hard-charger with top and bottom titanal layers, intended to mow down the mountain and any terrain. Its AR Nose Rocker technology is built to lift the ski's tips up and over the bumpy stuff and powder, for enhanced floatation and maneuverability. It also has Carbon fiber strips promoting the playfulness Armada is known for, designed to keep it useful on the days when you don't need as much burliness out of the ski. For something similar but a bit skinnier, check out the El Rey. The ARVti is part of Armada's All Mountain Freestyle series, which focuses on skis that are designed to get the job done not only in the park, but also on the rest of the mountain. For park skiers who like to make real turns, and only have the budget for one pair of sticks, this is one of Armada's best. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

Armada's softest ski, the EDOLLO, is not surprisingly the signature model of pro skier Henrik Harlaut, who is widely known for his buttery style and for rarely being on the ground. This is a ski intended for those who like to pop off every little bump or knoll they see on the mountain without putting in a surplus of effort. This is unlike Armada's traditional park skis, in that its design is wider and more versatile than most. The tip ranges up to 135mm and it has AR Nose Rocker technology, which is shared with a lot of Armada's all mountain skis. This technology lifts the ski's tip up and over varied terrain. It's designed for charging powder and other various terrain while having the durability to throw down in the park. The Hybrid Double Zone Core technology, shared with many of Armada's park skis, is designed to prevent the ski from snapping on harsh landings, a common occurrence in the park, and the CK Stringers (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) are designed to let the ski to pop and balance out that strong core. The EDOLLO is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

The THall, pro skier Tanner Hall's signature model, is built for all things freestyle. Like other Armada Park skis, the THall has CK Stringers in the tail (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) that are designed to allow the ski to pop. Also similar to other Armada Park Skis, the THall has positive camber designed for smooth carving, AR50 sidewalls built to decrease swing weight, and thick 2.5 mm impact edges intended to handle beat downs on jumps and rails. Unlike other Armadas, however, this ski has its own, one-of-a-kind core technology, the Hybrid T-Zone Core. This technology is manufactured to offer a softer tip for butters and nose presses and a stiff tail designed to handle harsh landings and high speeds. And while it has some stability, this is one of Armada's softest skis, intended to pop around the mountain. The THall is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

The flagship park ski for Armada, the AR7 is the company's go-to for park skiers. It's built a bit stiffer than some other park skis from Armada, like the THall and Pipe Cleaner, making it a good choice for those who like to get out of the park every once in a while and make some big, fast turns. A lot of this stability comes from the design of the AR50 sidewalls, which reduce swing weight, and CK Stringers (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) designed to give the ski more pop more than some of Armada's more rugged terrain-focused products. However, the main difference in this ski is it's unique Hybrid Triple Zone Core technology. Many of Armada's skis have light core technology, or double zone core technology, but this ski is constructed to be sturdier than them all. Park skiers who have a tendency to break skis every season should consider the AR7 as a top candidate from Armada. The AR7 is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

The TSTw is designed as a stable and floatable ski for all terrain. Its Hybrid Ultralight Core is designed to let it pop around the mountain without any extra baggage. The EST All Mountain Rocker technology is manufactured to keep the tails flat on the ground, promoting edge control, while the tips get up and over powder and bumpy stuff. Comp Series Bases are made of Armada's fastest base material, and 1.7 impact edges top it all off with their lightweight yet durable design. The TSTw is part of Armada's Women's series, which focuses on skis for chicks that rip. AR50 sidewalls (except in the Cantika) are built to decrease swing weight and Laminate Matrix integrates layered fiberglass, designed for an optimal flex pattern.

Intended for park and pipe skiing, the Pipe Cleaner is a fast and stable twintip for both men and women. The Hybrid Double Zone Core has additional laminates, and thick 2.5 mm impact edges are designed to bring the stabilization while the Comp Base, made of Armada's fastest base material, is designed to bring the speed. Its AR50 sidewall is also manufactured to decrease swing weight, and the overall build of the ski is softer and lighter than most models from Armada for extra pop and airtime. Armada makes a couple other park skis, like the AR7 and THall, making this more specific to the pipe (hence the name). According to the company, this is the most decorated pipe ski in history, bringing home medals from some of the biggest freeskiing competitions in the world. The Pipe Cleaner is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.

The Norwalk is Armada's more old-school powder ski, with a flatter tail than its Deepest series counterparts. This tail is also designed to be stiffer than any other powder ski from Armada except the Magic J, which features the same tail flex pattern. Its EST All Mountain Rocker has a lot to do with this traditional tail, holding zero rocker in the tail while other powder skis are totally rockered back there. This is designed for better edge hold on hard pack snow because, as we all know, not every day is a powder day. The Norwalk also has Comp Series Bases made of Armada's fastest base material. The Norwalk is part of Armada's Deepest series, which focuses on powder skis. AR50 sidewalls are designed to decrease swing weight, Hybrid Ultralight Cores are stabilized through extra damp wood cores, Laminate Matrix integrates layered fiberglass, designed for an optimal flex pattern, and 1.7 edges, Armada's lightest edges, are built in to decrease weight while maintaining durability.
