Armada Skis – Locator Series 2023
The Locator Series is designed for adventures beyond the ropes where untouched powder and steep lines await. Combining phenomenal performance characteristics with super light weights, the four skis in this collection are the ultimate tools to explore the mountains anywhere your legs, lungs and willpower can take you. Locator Series skis are balanced to excel on the up and the down in the enormous range of conditions found in the backcountry with float, stability and versatility at weights that won’t sap the energy needed to charge the descents. It’s okay to draw outside the lines.
With a radius of 20-24m, the locator skis have a sidecut that allows the ski to pivot easily, not feel twitchy, and provide incredible stability. Smooth lines throughout make for a predictable feeling no matter the snow type.
We focused on a low camber pocket to provide grip where its needed, but still allowing the ski to have a loose feeling in softer conditions. Rocker lines are “low and slow” which when coupled with the longer radius this provides perfect balance in the ski.
AR Bat Tail
This modern surf inspired tail shape allows skin clips to self center, making it impossible for a skin to slip off.
Our highest performing, lightest weight wood core. Sustainable as regrowth is up to 5 times faster than poplar.
Reduces weight in the tip/tail but provides ultimate grip underfoot.
Full Carbon Build
With ti binding enforcement.45 degree x-ply carbon fiber used for lightweight strength without giving up edge grip, ti binding enforcement for power.
