The Armada Bantam Skis, the little brother of the Codas, allow the youngest of family members to join the fold. Its design encourages experimentation and its solid construction ensures it’s built to be grown into.
Positive Camber engages the tip and tail of the ski, enhancing ease of entry and exit into and out of a turn, while maintaining solid edge hold.
Cap construction wraps the wood core with composite fiberglass layers creating a torsion box. A variable slant between the base and topsheet creates a super durable and light ski with a balanced flex.
The Bantam has a 1.7 edge, with the height and width deliberately smaller and the steel heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight.
An S7 base, Armada’s toughest base, features a gliding additive for increased speed and longevity.
The Laminate Matrix consists of three kinds of fiberglass laminates used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity needed in the appropriate places.
The InjectZone core is a PU injected core that is lightweight and responsive yet dampens out harsh hits from rails and hard landings.
