Armada bills the ARW as "the most core women's park ski on the market." In it, fiberglass laminates, carbon-Kevlar stringers, and a thicker 2.5-mm edge surround a sturdy core. Positive camber increases the ski's stability for carving off the lip of a jump. It's intended to stand up to all the abuse of dedicated park skiing.

Like the ARVti, the ARVw is intended to be a more traditional all-mountain, do-everything ski. It uses the same construction - AR50 Sidewalls (sidewall-cap construction), fiberglass laminates, carbon-Kevlar stringers, and tip rocker - as the men's version with the exception of the metal laminates. The ARVw is metal free making it more forgiving for a female rider, but it's still designed to be a hard-snow-charging ride with plenty of float for most powder days.

Like the men's Triumph, the Tryst is designed for the frontside. It's Armada's most groomer-oriented ski. With a narrow 78-mm waist, full camber, metal, fiberglass, and carbon-Kevlar laminates, and Armada's AR50 Sidewall construction (a blend between cap and sidewall construction), the Tryst is built like a GS ski and meant for fast turns on flat snow.

Like the men's El Rey, the Cantika is intended to be a more price-point oriented, all-mountain twintip and park ski. It's built with cap construction and a lightweight core. Thicker edges will be able to take more abuse from park features, while a generous waist (78 to 83 mm, length dependent) and full camber will provide both the hardpack performance and off-piste versatility demanded of today's all-mountain skis.

Based on Armada's highly lauded JJ, the VJJ is designed as a powder ski with versatile qualities for everyday riding. A girthy 115-mm waist, aggressive rocker, and taper improve floatation in deep snow, improve maneuverability, and give the ski a smeary feel, while camber underfoot will provide a measure of hardpack performance. Many of the same technologies in the men's JJ are found in the VJJ including the AR50 Sidewall (a blended sidewal-cap construction), the Hybrid UltraLight Core, and a top-of-the-line Comp Series Base.

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 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.

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.

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.
