Armada Alpha 1
Released November, 2001
The Pros:Great edge grip on groomers, good carving ability. Nice pop out of the turns when doing slaloms. Stable and stiff enough for short, quick turns.
The Cons:Takes awhile to find the sweet spot on the skis for proper turning. Take some getting used to, feel a bit unusual.

Armada states that this feature "will enhance the skis ability to butter jumps and press rails and boxes and also allow the ski to perform better in softer snow".
The Armada Alpha 1 features AR Hybrid core 2 construction with sidewall underfoot and cap construction in the tip and tail. The Alpha 1 ski is also equipped with a 2.5 impact edge for durability against tearing out from rocks or other abuse it might meet while the AR50 sidewall construction lowers swing and overall weight.
