Technical info:
Armada launched their touring skis last year, but this is their first attempt at lowering the weight. Otherwise Kufo comes in a pretty traditional shape, with short taper, relatively long setback and medium sidecut. The flex is soft, especially in the back ski.

On snow:
Kufo is a ski that is easy to like. It is quick and easy to maneuverer and you feel you´re in control. The edge grip on hard snow is acceptable. But we don´t think that the stability at speed can compete with the best skis. The flex is probably too soft. The traditional shape also takes away the skidding qualities of a typical freeride ski. However, many people will have a good time with this versatile ski touring model.
