Armada El Rey Skis 2012
Comes with a FREE Armada Beanie and FREE USA Shipping!!!
The stability of our fleet core wrapped with a laminate matrix torsion sock, EL Rey comes out of the press ready to dominate the mountain. Light, responsive, and quick turning, this ski is great for first time park skiers, yet is a solid fixture in some of our pro's bags. It also is the wider platform choice many skiers are seeing for softer park conditions. Dollar for dollar the best way to spend your money. Light, snappy, responsive, and quick, the El Rey is built for all-mountain riding but is nimble enough for regular laps through the park. It’s powerful, durable, versatile, everything you need wrapped into a great package.

This edge has an oversized height and width and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness which helps resist breaking and tearing out from rails, ledges and any other abuse it might meet.
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.
Improved for 10/11, the new S7 features a gliding additive for increased speed and longevity. Our toughest base, find the S7 on any ski that’s looking for rails, ledges, and boxes as much as snow.
Traditional camber engages the tip and tail of the ski, enhancing ease of entry and exit into and out of a turn, while maintaining solid edge hold.
Similar to the Double Zone core, but with a slow taper to 45 degrees toward the tips and tails. This eases entry and exit into and out of turns for lighter riders.
This method wraps the wood core with composite fiberglass layers creating a torsion box. The base assembly is inserted into the mold, then the fiberglass wrapped core and top material are added. A variable slant between the base and topsheet creates a super-durable and light ski with a balanced flex.
