Armada's flagship park ski will be your mothership.
The Armada AR7 Ski is a park ski at heart (in fact, it is Armada's flagship park ski), but it's also been known to spread its wings all over the mountain. It likes groomers, it likes park laps, and it likes it when you hold it on the podium.
The Positive Camber profile fully engages edges for hard-carving the mountain and fine control in the park, and the Hybrid Triple Zone core is super-strong, so there's no need to be gentle. Armada's AR50 sidewall combines cap and sidewall construction for lower swing-weight and durability—spin to win. The Laminate Matrix is placed for precise flex pattern and torsional rigidity, perfect for park and beyond, because, after all, this ski likes it all. The S7 base is fast, strong, and low-maintenance, and the Carbon KEVLAR® stringers in the tail add liveliness and longevity.

AR7 is great park ski, with a medium/stiff flex they can tackle large jumps, and with a little elbow grease they can smear and butter all over the park. If you prefer a traditional camber park ski these are a great choice. They have a tremendous amount of pop, feel very stable, and are a good width for rails. The sidewall/cap hybrid (ar50 sidewall) makes the tips and tails feel feather light when spinning. The ar7 can handle competition sized features, as we've seen at every X-Games, Armada's team put the ar7 to the test, far more than I ever could, which is enough proof to its reputation.
Mount towards center for park, or closer to recommended for all mountain ripping, these skis are made for whatever you throw at them.

Not everything needs to be rockered. If you like ripping groomers and/or ripping the park and prefer a more traditional feeling ski than the AR7 would be a solid choice. Bomber construction from Armada.
