JP one of the founders of Armada

Armada then.

Armada's humble beginnings started in a basement home office in Truckee, California. Driven by the evolution of skiing in the early 2000's and the industry's inability to adapt to what we now know as freeskiing, Armada was born. The handful of people at the epicenter of skiing’s evolution came together: five skiers and a photographer from across the US, Canada and Europe consisting of JP Auclair, Tanner Hall, JF Cusson, Julien Regnier and Boyd Easley, along with snow sports photographer Chris O’Connell, or “OC.” This crew was poised to adapt the team-based model of snowboarding and skateboarding to a ski brand.

Armada now.

Armada headquarters is now located in the heart of the action, Park City, Utah. The brand continues inspire a new generation of skiers to pursue and push the limits of freestyle and freeride skiing, through design and innovation. Their skis never sacrifice style over function and vice versa, if you are in the park, you can't miss the iconic and flashy colours of an Armada ski, and their latest innovations in freeride for both men and women are hard to beat. In the following sections we will break down the best in class skis Armada has to offer.

Declivity102ti

Technology

ATB

Titanal layers in the ski add horsepower and torsional strength, however in the tip of the ski, vertical cut-outs filled with an elastic compound layer allow the ski to enter the turn with ease. When the elastic compresses, it harnesses energy and releases for even more power than a traditional Ti layer.

Sidewall

Superior edge-grip for precision on the hardest of snow surfaces.

Caruba

15 - 20% lighter than poplar, equal performance, sustainable material.(5 years from seed to harvest)

Progressive Profile

Aggressive Tip shape for fast turn initiation. Blend point past rocker so power continues to build. Predictable sidecut underfoot.

Armada Reliance Series

The all-new Reliance Series delivers paradigm-shifting performance with a five-ski line up of directional all-mountain shredders. Resort-focused skiers who demand powerful edge grip and stability when the throttle is pinned can choose the perfect chassis for their home mountain.
