100 – 114 MM Freeride Ranking: #02
To quote the famous duo of Goose and Maverick, the Armada Invictus 08 Ti Skis “have the need—the need for speed.” Its directional shape, heavy dose of traditional camber and double layer of Titanal all contribute to its hardcharging nature (have a look at the carving and stability scores on this baby). Put the Invictus to work on steep, variable terrain or just carve trenches into the hardpack, it’ll perform equally well. Its nose rocker provides float while carbon and Kevlar stringers up the response, resulting in a plank that’ll “rip just about anything you’ll come across on the hill,” according to one tester.
