Product Info

Well it's finally happened. The company known for making super fat freestyle skis has gone and make a made one for the ultralight tourists. The Armada Locator 88 Skis are are true volcano skis, as we call them in the PNW. They're crazy light, super nimble, and built to fly up the skin track. They eat kick turns for breakfast, and for lunch they feast on fresh corn snow. But these things are way more than just an uphill tool. After all, why fly up to the top if you can't have as much fun as possible flying back down to the bottom? These slim sticks are made with a sturdy flex, slightly tapered tips, and just a bit of tip rocker, so you can be hooting and hollering the whole way down, after you effortlessly glide the whole way up.

Product Details

Rocker Type

EST Freeride RockerForebody rocker and extra tip taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber under foot with no tail rocker ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.


Caruba CoreArmada's lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required for descending in the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in its quest to be ultralight.


TI Binding DampenerBelow the binding, a sandwich of rubber, titanal, and finally more rubber works to dampen vibration that otherwise chatters into your bots and shortens your day. Ski bell to bell with extra damping provided.

Carbon ReinforcementSpecially placed carbon stringers add pop and stiffness without adding weight.


Comp Series BaseSintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.


1.7 Lightweight EdgeLight and strong, these heat-treated edges effect the feel of the ski minimally to ensure a snappy, lightweight feel.
