Completely redesigned for the 2013/2014 season, the Alpha X features a wider platform for added stability both in the park and on the mountain. The Alpha X has a lower tip and tail height and less taper than its predecessor, but still offers the same light swing weight made famous by our EST Park Rocker designs. Those attributes, combined with a Comp Seris Base and Triple Zone Core, create the recipe for a ski ready for the smoothest spins on the biggest jumps.
Armada Skis 2014 Tech Features
The next level. Subtle rocker in the tips and tails with positive camber underfoot. This enhances carving while also disengaging the tip and tail to create a catch-free feel that’s ideal for buttering and nose and tail presses.
ABS sidewall meets cap construction – the best of both worlds. This engineering method combines the lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot, resulting in enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.
Three high density wood stringers sit along ultra light wood for a powerful, durable core with explosive energy return. Triple Zone cores resist compression without creating unnecessary weight.
This edge has an oversized height and width and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness which hel-ps resist breaking and tearing out from rails, ledges and any other abuse it might meet.
A World Cup-inspired base that requires higher maintenance than the S7, the Comp Series pays for the extra TLC it requires in one way: Speed.
We know from the core out exactly how each ski should react, so three kinds of fiberglass laminates are used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex. Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski. The permutations of the three fiberglasses are nearly limitless and allow us to precision tune the performance of every ski we make.
A blend of Carbon/Kevlar stringers that run along the tail of the skis to help stabilize it. This creates a better landing platform, especially when your weight is further back than intended. It also increases snap and adds pop to ollies.
