Overall this was the best ski purchase i ever made and i definitely do not regret buying these. If you are shredding the park in Breck, or shredding a little bit of Utah pow, or maybe some East Coast Ice you will not be disappointed by this ski
The Armada Halo has been the best ski ive ever owned not only has it progressed me greatly in the park realm but has actually done the job on the powder side of things and I ride K2 Hellbents as my normal pow ski so thats saying something. The ski really knows how to ride anything from my perspective. rmadas Patented Elf Shoe technology with early tapered tips and tails, rocker, and camber with the new AR50 side walls where there is cap construction in the tip and tail and sidewall under foot really performs. The technology does what it set out to do it makes skiing way more fun. The tech helps with everything from jumps to rails and makes them as easy as possible but still can handle the biggest tricks being done out there today.
The graphics are great with somewhat of a spectrum being represented and they bases also pop with the same design. The ski has somewhat of an odd look to it becasue of its early tapering but still looks cool and unique. The look is top notch.
Awesome value the ski is loaded with technology and will not let you down. It holds up like a park ski should and it shreds like you wish your park skis would. After 40 days of Shredding on mine there is nothing more than a single chip in the tail of the left ski that is no larger than 1cm and there is only a few minor scratches in the base. This ski is worth the money.
The Ski in my opinion has a perfect flex being rock solid under foot and fairly loose and buttery in the tips and tails. The ski is great for jumps in the range of anything up to 60ft. It also is great for taking on rails because of the poppy responsive tails that pop with ease.
As in the past Armadas durability is top notch and now even better because of the recent addition of the AR50 sidewall with cap construction in the tips and tails and sandwich ABS under foot. The ski has no major chips or dents and the bases are crazy durable and easy to wax. Durability couldn't get much better
