It doesn't matter if the mountain is serving up a dose of fresh pow, wind buff, slush, or a big old nasty boilerplate full of death crust, the Armada Invictus 108Ti Ski will handle it all. Stiff, stable, and damp, the Invictus is for the sort of skier who wants to open it up down big, open faces, straight line chutes, and send it huge when the conditions are right. A departure from Armada's usually more playful skis, the Invictus offers a damp platform to charge hard through variable conditions and crush freshies when there's a foot of new blanketed over the resort. The stiffer flex pattern and longer turn radius make these boards want to arc down open faces and scream through tight chutes. Traditional camber underfoot provides stability, and the rockered tip lets you get out of the back seat on a powder day. Carbon fiber strips lighten them up for a fun feel and give the ski a dependable jolt coming in and out of turns. Two layers of titanal through the ski inspire confidence when you're maching down the mountain, and the 108mm waist width offers just enough float for all but the deepest days.
