2012 Armada Alpha1s? Reviews?
Hey NSers I am looking at the 2012 Armada Alpha1s. I am from the East Coast so we basically do groomers and have a good bit of ice here. I know the skis are early rise tip/tail and have a somewhat normal camber underfoot so I was thinking that it would be ok here. I do mostly park but will cruise around the mountain as well. Could anyone that has played with these skis give me some feed back as to what they are like? +K for help and bumps!
take a little bit of time to get used to if you've been on a normal full camber park ski all your life, but when you do you'll wonder if you can ever go back
lightest swing-weight lets you spin like a mad man, and the core is the perfect amount of stiffness even for a tall guy like me 6'6" 180 lbs, who can torque the shit out of a ski. I have no problem taking them on 80 foot+ jumps at mammoth...
really great for switch tricks, that little bit of rocker just makes it that much easier on take offs
durability wise they are great... no edge cracks after 1.5 seasons on them, just wax the base fairly regularly and keep them saturated
to date they are my favorite park ski i have ever been on in 10+ years of park skiing
Excellent. I am about 5'9" 180lbs (im not fat haha) but thats what I like to hear. pghjibber could you possibly be from pittsburgh? if so where from? Im from pittsburgh haha. +K
Ha yeah, I'm from Pittsburgh. Been living in CA since 2005 though. Went to Mt. Lebanon.
ha ah thats awesome. Im from Shaler so I'm pretty close. But thanks for your feedback on those Alpha1s. Probably gonna buy those. +K 10/10
