        Overall

        It was Armada's first year making skis and frankly that first year they didn't live up to the hype, this ski isn't durable, isn't stable, and is really only great on rails. If you need an urban ski look for a cheap pair of these, otherwise look elsewhere, possibly into the later Armada's which were a huge improvement.

        Performance

        Great jib, if you want something thats very noodly(great for butters)and quick on rails get this ski, this ski is an ideal urban ski, however, the softness makes it terrible out of the park, as well as it is so soft that even in the pipe and on tables it lacks some pop and stability.

        Design

        Simple set sexy graphic, looks very thin and not durable tho.

        Value

        do NOT pay retail for these, basically the only reason to buy these skis in todays market is if your looking for a rail ski, I wouldn't pay more then 100 for them, if you cant find them that cheap, just look into the better models that came after this.

        Characteristics

        Very soft ski, this is the first year Armada's came out and there was no tanner hall pro yet, so very thin and very soft ski.

        Durability

        Not super durable, numerous edge cracks, the tail plate was a factory defect and ripped out, topsheet chips a ton as well, basically unless its just an urban ski, look for something after this year.
