The 2011 Armada AR7 Skis have been completely redesigned for the 2011 season and from the reaction of how they are selling Armada killed it with this ski. Not only is the all new AR7 wider but they also adjusted the sidewall making it even more versatile of a ski for not only park riding but all mountain skiing. If you are looking for a one ski quiver to ski all mountain and freestyle the Armada AR7 with its 85mm waist and AR50 sidewall makes for smooth landings and great edge hold on firm conditions. Armada is all about versatility with their skis and the new Armada AR7 has some of the most versatility you can get in a freestyle ski. The new sidewall also allowed them to reduce the weight of the ski even though it is wider. From all indications Armada looks to be just about sold out of AR7’s for the year so don’t wait too long as you will not be getting these later in the year!
