Ski review Armada Triumph
Superb & extremely versatile piste ski
The Armada Triumph is the most versatile on-piste ski, that I have yet encountered. It carves like a dream. You can go horizontal on this baby and it won't drift one bit. It powers down the mountain if you want to and turns easily at low speed as well. Even in 20cm of powder snow it is amazingly good, although Armada claims that it is a pure on-piste ski
Cheapest price we found Armada Triumph ski 2014 for sale:
On a normal pair of racecarve skis, you wouldn't be found dead on an all bump piste. The Armada Triumph however handles all piste terrain brilliantly in all conditions. Long powerful carving turns, short "old school" turns, chopped-up snow and bumps, this ski always maintains control. Ususally a giant slalom ski is a derivative of an race ski. The manufacturer tries to adapt the race ski to normal use by us mortals. Clearly Armada has developed this ski the other way around. As they don't have a race department, they must have thought about what an amateur would like in a giant slalom ski. And they have succeeded with flying colours.

Armada about the Triumph
"The Triumph is the premier on-piste ski. Built with premium race GS construction on an all-mountain chassis, the Triumph is as stable, fast, and responsive as any ski in its category. Plus, the added versatility and forgiveness of titanal helps initiate and release turns with precision."
I agree on everything. This ski has no flaws.

The Salomon 2V Race has more acceleration than the Armada Triumph, but is less versatile. The Rossignol Radical 9GS has that same superb edge grip, but is less playful. The Salomon X-Race is a real contender in all aspects.
