Like the men's version, the TSTw is intended to be a modern all-mountain twin-tip. Its pronounced tip rocker and taper, and 100-mm waist will make it plenty floaty and maneuverable, but the stiffer, unrockered tail will help finish a turn on hardpack. Many of the same technologies in the men's TST are found in the TSTw including the AR50 Sidewall (a blended sidewal-cap construction), the Hybrid UltraLight Core, and a top-of-the-line Comp Series Base.

The El Rey is Armada's more price-point park ski. It uses a lightweight cap construction and Armada's lightest core. However, it's still built with thicker, more durable edges for rails and jibs, positive camber, fiberglass laminates, and carbon stringers for extra pop and strength. It also has a stiffer flex than most of Armada's other park skis to help improve its hard-snow and all-mountain performance.

The AR7 is Armada's original park ski. It's designed for durability and performance. This season, Armada refined the flex of AR7 to better accommodate more all-mountain conditions. A fully cambered ski, the AR7 is built with fiberglass laminates and carbon-Kevlar stringers for increased strength and pop. The thicker 2.5-mm Impact Edge can take abuse from rails and jibs. A versatile waist width (ranging from 83 to 87 mm depending on length) will help it excel outside the park.

Tanner Hall's pro-model park ski is built with a traditional camber profile and a flex pattern that softens as you get to the tip and tail. This will help it be stable and predictable as you carve off jumps and hit rails yet still buttery for presses. The THall uses all of Armada's top-of-the-line technologies for durable park skis including, thicker edges, a faster base, Armada's strongest core structure, and three types of laminates: fiberglass, carbon, and Kevlar. At just under 90 mm underfoot, it will be best suited in the park or used as a park-inspired, all-mountain twin out East.

Armada introduced the new ARVti to compete in a popular segment of the American market: 98-mm, all-mountain skis with metal laminates. The ARVti, is designed to be a one-ski quiver with tip rocker, two layers of Titanal for dampening, and a waist width that's at home in almost all conditions. It's also built with fiberglass, carbon, and Kevlar laminates to keep it energetic, and thicker edges and a stronger base for the durability demanded by the everyday skier.

The Halo 2 is a play on an all-mountain twin/park ski. It has 5-dimension sidecut (meaning both the tip and tail are tapered), which will give it a looser, smearier feel. It also implements Armada's EST Park Rocker - subtle rocker in the tip and tail and positive camber underfoot - which helps with butters and presses but also adds a measure of soft-snow performance. It's waist width, ranging from 92 to 95 mm depending on length, provides enough versatility to explore beyond the park.

The TST is intended to be a modern interpretation of an all-mountain ski. The rockered and tapered tip will provide smeary looseness and powder performance, while the more traditional flat tail and 100-mm waist provide more versatility and trustworthiness in variable conditions and hardpack. The Hybrid UltraLight Core keeps the ski's swing weight down, as do the fiberglass laminates. The AR50 sidewall blends sidewall and cap construction for improved durability from chipping while maintaining the performance of a sidewall construction.

New for 2013/14, the Al Dente is the pro model of X-Games-winning hucker Henrick Harlaut. It's built with a touch of rocker in the tip to make butters and presses easier, while camber throughout the rest of the ski will help with carving off jump lips and sticking landings. Though it's built for park applications, its soft flex and generous waist (98 mm) provide soft-snow performance and all-mountain versatility.

Tanner Hall's powder ski of choice, the Magic J is a variation on Armada's much-loved JJ. It's wider than the JJ, has less tip-and-tail taper, and a longer sidecut for a less-catchy experience at high speeds in deep powder. It uses Armada's versatile EST Freeride Rocker, a blend of tip-and-tail rocker and positive camber, for maximum float without major sacrifices to hard-snow performance, and a measure of bi-directional skiability. Fiberglass laminates and a light wood core round out the features of this wide surfer.

The long-time halfpipe weapon returns for Armada. The Pipe Cleaner uses full camber to provide the most edge grip for carving and jumping on firm halfpipe walls. It has a beefed up 2.5-mm metal edge for increased durability, carbon-laminate stringers for added pop, and a competition base material for maximum speed in the pipe. It's part of Armada's LTD series, meaning it gets the best materials and the most attention to detail.
