Armada TST Review
The Armada TST ski has Armada’s patented EST All Mountain Rocker, which makes this a great all mountain ski for a variety of conditions. This profile boasts a progressive tip rocker and almost no tail rocker, which in plain English means decent float in soft snow and powder (due to the front rocker) but plenty of power and edge hold on hard packed piste (due to the small tail rocker, sidecut, and positive camber underfoot).
With a wood core it’s even light enough for short day tours and boot-packing.
It’s available in four lengths: 165, 174, 183, and 192.
Profile: 119 – 132 – 102 – 123 (@183)
Named after the late, potentially great Travis Steeger, who was one of Armada’s promising sponsored skiers. A proportion of every sale goes to the Travis Steeger Memorial Fund.
- Excellent all rounder
- Decent float in soft snow
- Good edge hold on hard packed piste
- Fairly light
- Too much of a ski for complete beginners and those who never venture off piste
- Those with enough space/money/energy to have a multi-ski quiver will find better specialised skis for each condition
- Armada’s usual mildly grotesque graphics don’t suit everyone’s taste
