Technical info:
Armada has become a solid brand, and now they want to make more than just extreme skis. So here is a metal reinforced allround ski without taper, and with moderate rocker, most in the front. The construction is relatively light, despite the titan plates. The flex is medium soft to soft in the front skis, and the turning radius of 22 meters is typical in this category. But Armada is just not like any other ski. The ARW Ti 188 has a powerful tail.

On snow:
It´s a pleasure to cruise down the slopes on this ski. Here you get both stability at speed and a ski that is willing to turn. It is no skidding ski, it wants to be skied on the edge. Compared to the best skis in the category, we think it lacks some agility and precision. We can´t quite see the point of the tail as it is not really a park ski. On the other hand, it is a nice piste ski for the dad who wants the same brand as his son.
