Like a shark in a sea of goldfish, this is the top of the food chain.
Armada's LTD Series is a line of skis crafted from nothing but the highest-end materials known to ski production. The Alpha 1 Ski was born of this line and thus, its performance in the park is unquestionably superior to all others. It's stiff, responsive, low on swing weight, and high on agility (thanks Park Rocker!). This is a tool of the elite and a predator among prey—don't pass up your opportunity to snag one of these bad boys because once an LTD ski is gone, it's gone.
- EST Park Rocker utilizes rocker at the tip and tail and the largest area of positive camber underfoot of all of Armada's rockered camber profiles
- Hybrid Triple Zone Core is a wood core with three high-density wood stringers to stiffen longitudinal flex and three ABS layers laid alongside the core to increase torsional rigidity
- AR50 Construction uses cap construction in the tip and tail and sidewall underfoot for the ultimate balance of reduced swing weight, increased durability, and powerful edging
- AR50 Sidewalls increase torsional rigidity which translates into powerful edge hold
- Laminate Matrix layup provides further reinforcement above and below the core so you can ride the Alpha 1 hard
- CK Stringers add to tail durability while giving this ski pop essential for clearing massive tables and ollieing onto tall rails
- 2.5mm Impact Edges are extra thick, and that means they can put up with more abuse
- 81-83mm waist feels stable on rails, forgiving when you take a landing a little too deep, and nimble enough to make quick edge-to-edge movements in the pipe

Looking for a solid 50/50 all mountain/park...
Looking for a solid 50/50 all mountain/park ski. Looking at 2013 line chronics and armada alpha 1. I am 6'2" 200lbs and very aggressive skier. I already have pow skis. Looking for a solid all around ski. If it handles a few inches of snow that would be a bonus. Any thoughts?
Hi, I am looking for a ski that will preform...
Hi, I am looking for a ski that will preform really well on rails with a ton of flex for buttering that will still be stiff enough for stomping big jumps. I'm caught up between the Halo"s and the Alpha 1's, what do you suggest? Also I am looking for a binding that can take alot of abuse without blowing up on me (probably metal) what bindings would be best?
Halos will have a softer feel and butter a lot easier. Halos handle jumps fine but are definitely softer. I would recommend if you spend more time on rails the halos, but if you are hitting big jumps often the alphas will definitely be the ticket. Bindings I would suggest the rossignol FKS or the look pivots. Both super strong and sweet bullet proof and safer turntable design.
