Technical info:
Armada was the first to produce park skis with rocker geometry a few years ago. This model is a continuation of this trend, only slightly wider. The ski has a lot of sidecut, especially in the front. This well known semicap construction from Atomic has the highest specific weight in this category. A lot of tail and front ski.

On snow:
This is less of a piste ski than Henrik Harlaut´s Edollo. Phil Casabon´s pro model doesn´t feel as calm and stable as the other Armada ski in this test. But it is considerably better on rails and jumps and it might be the best allrounder.
