Newschoolers' Quick Review:
Armada's last traditional pipe/slopestyle ski, the AR8 is a pretty solid offering with full camber and a fairly stiff tail. I only got to spend a couple of runs on these but they felt almost identical to the Pipe Cleaner of old, potentially they are the same exact ski. They carve great have tons of pop for boosting and feel nice and solid on landings. The nose is actually not that stiff, so you can butter for sure but they are far from the most natural ski for jibbing around on. A great option for someone looking to go big or just rip around groomers both forward and switch. -Twig
A dedicated tool of the trade, the AR8 is Torin Yater-Wallace's park and pipe ski of choice. Built with traditional camber, it also features a stiff tail for popping out of the halfpipe and stomping park landings. If it's good enough for Torin, it's good enough for us.
