Description

The TST is a quiver of one.

The Armada TST is a big mountain ski that is wide enough to surf on the deepest of days, and straight line the steepest shots. Effortlessly maneuver the TST through the trees as you line up for a series of cliff drops, then float lightly through the pow on your way back to the lift. As you scout your next big line from the lift take a minute to give a small homage to Travis Steeger.
  • Sidewall construction underfoot enhances edge control, while tip and tail cap construction lowers overall weight
  • Hybrid ultra-core concentrates the weight of the ski beneath the boot sole to increase durability and lower swing weight to so you’ll be sticking back flips all day long
  • 50/50 base is fast on the downhill and durable enough to pound rocks, stumps, and rails
  • EST All-Mountain Rocker has a progressive tip for floating through the deepest pow
  • Positive camber underfoot helps maintain edge control on the hardpack

Hello I have the women's Armada 156 TST skis & wanted your opinion on the best skin for the ski. I've used the orange black diamond skins before & they performed decently, but I need a different fit for my new Armadas. Thanks!

I am going to demo this ski tomorrow. The 156. I an 5'4 115lbs is that the appropriate length? I have been skiing on some rossinogols that are 172 for the last 4 years.

What a ride!

I spent a spring day at a local CO area demo-ing 3 skis for tele. Started on a pair Icelantic Nomads then tried the Armada TST's and lastly the Volkl Mantra's. There was no comparison! The Nomad was just too fat in the tip for me and very heavy. The Mantra just didn't respond like the TST. I was so impressed with the weight and response of the Armada TST I was blown away. I thought the rocker tip would be a problem but was so wrong. This ski handled so well in the spring conditions, I can only imagine what it will do in the powder! Definitely buying this ski!

really sorry guys for another ski length question, but i really want to make sure i get the right ski. i am 5'8'' / 150 lbs and am an intermediate skier. checked a few online calculators and it told me i should get something in the high 160's range. do you think i should go with the 165 or 174. thanks!

Responded on

Hey Josh Cruz,

Thanks for the question. Judging by your height/weight/ability, upper 160s to mid 170s would work depending on your preferred turn shape and how much rocker the ski has.

For the TST, you could go with the 174 and have it work pretty well due to the amount of rocker it has. It would prompt a longer turn shape from you at first, but not to the point of discomfort.

Hi guys i'd like to know what size is best for me, i'm 1.81 mt (5,9 ft) and weight 74 kg (163 lb) and i'm an andvance rider going for expert these year. i ski mostly in a resort that has very similar conditions to the backcountry, it also has tree areas and obviusly hardpack in the main areas. i'm always pushing myself, i like skiing fast and go big in any conditions. should i go for the 1,83 with marker duke 16 or baron 13 bindings? sorry for my english i'm from Chile

I have the 183, with a Baron and am 5'9" and 167. I have no problem with this set up.

49 yr YOUNG Vail local looking to Tele ski. I am 172 lbs, 5'10" and am wondering whether I should get the 183 or 192? I am good tele'r, and want to have a good, all-mtn ski that I can control and won't take me for a ride instead.

Responded on

Vail regular, not as "young" as you (ok, younger, actually). I'm the same height, but weigh a bit more. I also ride a pair of 193s that are about the same width as the TSTs. I can mash them around, but I don't think a lighter skier could. You should probably go with the 183s.

Responded on

I'm 6' 170lbs and telemark 50/50 backcountry and colorado mts. I demoed the 183 this week and they felt perfect. Long enough to be good in pow (especially with the big rocker tip) but also nimble enough to turn quick. I usually prefer a shorter ski for trees and bumpy resort snow conditions. I skied them in the 30" of crazy pow at Steamboat and promptly returned to the shop and bought a pair. I was looking for a big rocker tip and no tail rocker to avoid the tele 'wheelie'. They're perfect match with a big powder ski for a colorado quiver.

!83cm for sure!!!

Hi guys. Another length question I'm afraid....

Posted on

Hi guys. Another length question I'm afraid. I am weighing up the 183 vs the 174. I am 172 cm (5 foot 7) tall and weigh 74 kg (163 pounds). I am an intermediate to advanced skier - keen to push more to the advanced side. I recently skied some rental JJs in 185 and enjoyed them but I'm wondering if I should be heading shorter in the TST. Will be used mainly on groomers/side country in New Zealand but also in deep pow in Japan. Appreciate any advice. Cheers.

Responded on

I own a 185 JJ and I just demo'd next years TST in a 183cm today. It feels and skis longer than my JJ. You can tell there is more tip out in front of you and can feel the non rockered tail behind you. Very fun ski indeed. I'm 6'1" 180lbs expert and my JJ's are too short on deep powder days but great every other day. I would buy the TST in a 183cm for sure for myself. My wife is an incredible skier as well. She demo'd the tstw in a 165cm and thats what she would buy. She is 5'6" 130lbs and strong. I honestly think that the 174 would be just great for you other than really deep days where you might want a different board. Always a tough decision but I feel too long of a length in this ski will take the fun out of it for non powder days. Good luck!

How does the TST feel in semi deep powder? My 185jj's always feel like the tips are dving when deep because of its centered/balanced skiing feel. Is the TST similiar? And also has anyone seen next years mens graphic and what do you think of it?

Would eveybody size this ski similiar to a JJ when picking lengths? Even though it doesn't have the rockered tail it still has a twin tip tail plus a full rockered tip section. Does it still seem to ski as short as a JJ does. I have a 185jj and it skis and feels short. Im 6'1" 180lbs, 40 year old expert.

Responded on

I ski a 185 JJ and a 183 TST. 5' 10" 150 lbs. Skiing 20+ years. I'm a ski instructor at a small resort in Pa. I also wondered about TST sizing given the non-rockered tail. Went with the 183. No regrets. They really charge, but they can dance too!!

Responded on

5'9' 145 lbs. I have the JJ in 185 and the TST in 183. The JJ skis way shorter, and is more smeary, forgiving, fun and playful. The TST charges harder, is better on hard snow, and faster. The TST does feel longer, but the biggest difference I feel is the TST is stiffer. If I were planning on trees and tight spaces, JJ if it was a charge hard, go fast day TST.

Sick ride, all day every day!

Gave these babies a demo in niseko, and I want a set but need to give a few more brands a slide, so if anyone can point me in a different direction would be awesome, but only if their tested these slick sticks out and found something better! And no reverse camber flip flops, I do like to ski and get deep when possible, plus back in the land down under ..... No use for em'.
Oh and the 174's were my ride but would like the 183's if they don't throw me through a tree, anyone know if there's a hell of a difference!
Love your work armada!
Cheers fellow hounds!

I own a pair of 183's. Really enjoy them. Also demoed Nordica Patron 185. Another outstanding ride. They're worth a look IMHO. See my comments on BackCountry's Patron page.

You're SO MONEY!

I ride the Nordica Patrons and the Armada TST and I think that I am going to prefer these over the Patrons. These lighter, stiffer, and hold an edge better than most any ski that I have skied. The non-rockered tails rail and make it quick and nimble. I skied 8" of fresh snow at Snowbird last friday on these and pieced a cliff session and I stuck everything with ease and more confidence than on my Patrons. Again I think that it is the traditional non-rockered tails that makes it easy. These rip on the groomers as well. I am going to throw a pair of MFD alltimes on them and make this my all around bomber ski.

Looking at Armada TST for son, 5'6" 140, solid skier. Mount Bohemia (just got back-conditions are getting good) is his "home course" while at school for the next few years. Has a pair of beaters to dodge the rocks and works them good in the pow and trees but really needs something more. And has a desire to telemark so I am interested in a good set up that way.
Really appreciate any advice/counsel.
Thank you
Next year I begin my 6th decade dreaming of the next powder day.

thank you

Mounted these boys up with Rossi FKS 14s. Due to the lack of snow in early December, and my life as a college student, I have not been able to ride them yet, but I cannot wait to rip these in CO!

Responded on

Also, for those with questions about mounting position, just go with factory recommended. I believe that is -5 of center. That way, the boot is more centered over the sidewall part of the ski, which gives the edge grip that this ski boasts over a lot of other boards of this width, and it is back far enough where the rockered tip will not hinder the amount of tip to snow contact that you get riding hardpack.

Gangster Gangster

These things are super slick. With the lack of snow this season I've only really used these bad boys on the hard stuff, a couple small pow days, and the groomskis. These skis are sick because they do it all. I was amazed at how hard i could carve these things on groomers (which I typically stay away from.)

In the pow. I had these in about 10 inches and spent my time mostly in the trees. The tips of the skis WANT to stay on top of the snow... its actually kind of difficult to drive them below the pow. Remember that the front of this ski is basically the front of the JJ... at times, I found myself wishing I had the rockered/ shovelled tail but then I remembered that if that were the case I would not be as happy as I was when on hard pack or other non powder conditions.

All in All - these skis are sick - certainly a quiver of one. IF you only plan on rocking the deep stuff you might want a ski that is wider under foot and some tail (or full) rocker.

ARMADA TST OR K2 SIDESTASH

Hi, I'm an intermediate skier who wants to improve his abilities and looking for an all arounder..I'm between Armada TST and K2 Sidestash. Which one should I chose? I mostly ski in Balkan area, Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Serbia, etc. The countries that I ski have most of the time variable snow but sometimes we get powder days too. With 6 ft & 188 lb. should I go for 183 or 192?

Hi I just got Armada TST 183 and Marker Baron Bindings.

I'm 6'00" - advanced skier

What mounting position would you recommend for
70% Freeride, Big mountain, Pow, some short Ski-Tour trips
and
30% Resort ?

I like to ride fast.
I will not land backwards on Pow I guess - maybe some times.

Armada recommends 83cm from tail to boots mid-sole, but when I look at the ski it looks like it would be better to mount it a little bit to the back 82 or even 81 cm from tail .
Specially because of rocker and the way
carved edge has been designed ( carved edge goes right from the back to the place when the rocker starts).
When I step on the ski (when boot is at 83 cm position) it looks like a bit to short in front of me.

What is your opinion?

Thanks

Great Ski

Awesome skis, wish I could have had a little more favorable conditions than sheer ice the first time I skied them. Can't wait to get them out in some nice pow. Stable at higher speed and quick underfoot regardless of the width and rocker in the tips. A candidate for "one ski quiver" in my view for sure.

I'm 6'1", 160 lbs. Looking for a versatile, fun resort ski. I have Megawatts for the powder days, so more for bumps, steeps and groomers on the dry days. Not looking for the stiffest ski out there, would prefer something more forgiving. So:
