Reviewer Heyman

"One-Ski Quiver: the ultimate ski that carves like a slalom ski, accellerates like a GS ski, is as comfortable as an all-mountain ski, cuts through chop like a freeride ski and surfs in bottomless powder like a fat powder ski. Impossible. But which ski comes closest?"

All-mountain versatility without limits


I think this is the one. The one ski that can do it all. The one ski quiver that everybody has always been looking for. The Armada TST is superb in chopped-up snow. There is no limit to speed or control when you surge through the terrain. On the groomed slopes the TST carves sharp and tight turns. And the tip rocker ensures ample floatation in powder snow. With a little bit of extra speed the TST even surfs in deep powder. Not as good as a real deep powder ski, but excellent for an all-mountain ski.

The best mix of everything

The Armada TST combines the best characteristics of a frontside all-mountain ski with those of a freeride ski. The whole mountain is yours as a result. The no-rocker tail makes for excellent on-piste performance: tons of edge grip and carving ability like a real piste ski. The tip rocker and the four point sidecut (i.e. the widest point of the ski is not at the tip but some 15cm backwards) give the TST everything a freeride ski needs: floatation in powder snow, stability and good dampening in chopped-up snow and a relatively short radius for playfulness.

Armada about the TST

"The TST’s party-in-the-front-business-in-the-back mentality makes this the most versatile men’s ski in our lineup: ready to chase powder, punch through the crud and give groomers the business on the way back to the lift. A rockered tip gives you the float you’re looking for, while a flat tail is backing you up with power and stability. Athlete-driven. Reverse mullet-inspired.", says Armada. I totally agree on everything. Don't take the TST too long, about 5cm above your own lenght. You don't need the lenght and it will deminish the playfulness.
