If you are a serious park skier and want a solid do-it-all ski, the Armada AR7 Skis are your answer. The AR7 features traditional-camber, wood-core that's light, firm, and spinnier than a whirling dervish on a merry-go-round. Armada built the AR7 around a Hybrid Triple-Zone core, which uses three full-length wood stringers for a super-poppy feel so you can boost over all the little kids standing in your landing, and wrapped it with a fiberglass laminate matrix for plenty of lightweight stiffness when you're carving into those icy takeoffs and pipe walls.
Armada gives the tip flex rating a 6 and the tail a 7, probably because there are carbon Kevlar stringers behind your foot for extra turn-finishing power and stability at speed. The soft tip lets you butter like a dairy farm, but the AR50 construction places sidewalls under your foot (along with a flex rating of 8) for serious edge grip and a cap over the tip and tail for an über-light swingweight that'll turn your 3s into 5s and your 5s into 12s, probably. The 2.5mm Impact Edge is super-hard and durable, while the S7 base has a special additive for quickness and is rugged enough that it won't shy away from hard impacts and metal features.
