TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • __________
  • AR Freestyle Rocker - Rockered tips and tails are combined with positive camber under foot to allow the ski to charge with ease through unpredictable snow and maintain a solid carve when asked to do so. Turn the whole mountain into your playground.
    • __________
    • Caruba Core - Our lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required for descending the gnarliest terrain. This core makes no performance concessions in its quest to be ultra-light.
      • __________
      • 1.7 Lightweight Edge - Light and strong, these heat-treated edges affect the feel of the ski minimally to ensure a snappy, lightweight feel.
        • __________
        • AR75 Sidewall - Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness. 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
          • __________
          • Comp Series Base - Sintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.
            • __________
            • Pin Tip + Tail - Quick turn initiation with reduced drag
              • __________
              • Smear Tech - A 3D beveled base in the tip and tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self centering in deep snow and un-catchable on take offs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left or right.

SAMMY'S HOLY GRAIL. A LIGHTWEIGHT, CHARGING POWDER TWIN MADE FOR CREATIVE SKIING IN BIG BOY TERRAIN.

Armada set out to build Sammy a powder twin tip that is stable enough to charge exposed lines and take big hits with maximum confidence yet light enough for foot-powered backcountry access. A strategically enhanced Caruba Core allows these concepts to merge while the rockered Pin Tip and Tail guarantee quick turn initiation, reduce drag and further lower the swingweight. Lightweight and stable, but offering plenty of release when needed, the Whitewalker 116 perfectly compliments Sammy's laid-back, surf-inspired style that's peppered with sudden bursts of all-out aggression.

SIGNATURE SERIES

Armada's signature athletes push the envelope year after year, and they believe their skis should too. Designed to the exact specifications of skiing’s most creative trio, the Signature Series echoes the influence of Sammy Carlson, Henrik Harlaut and Phil Casabon, delivering professional performance from the deep stashes and pillows of British Columbia to the icy streets of Quebec and every type of terrain in between.
