2020 Armada Skis and Bindings Preview

The Blackout Shift Since becoming part of Amer Sports two years ago, joining Salomon and Atomic, Armada has maintained its unique brand identity. 2020 Armada skis and gear continue to do so (seriously...they've got an edgeless urban rail ski in the lineup...), but with one major exception. The Shift binding, released this season by Salomon and Atomic, gets tagged with an Armada logo and painted all-black for 2020. So for next season, customers get the industry's most popular binding with three color options—and a slew of skis that would be great matches. In the Armada lineup, the Tracer series (which gets a new core for 2020) and the ARV JJ 116 Ultralite are prime skis to be paired with a Shift.

2020 Armada ARW 116 VJJ Description:

Do you find it obnoxious that so few companies make a womens powder ski wider than around 110mm underfoot? We certainly do. So when Armada decided to bring back the VJJ, we were impressed. Back with the ARW 116 moniker, these skis do what the previous model did. They give strong female skiers a legitimate deep-snow ski that surfs and floats the best snow you can imagine. The ARW 116 VJJ is built with the same tech that makes the mens version such an absolute blast to ski. Deep rocker lines and twin tips, plus a hyper responsive core, allow you to smear, slash, slide, spray, sluff, and SLAY. All day. The ARW 116 VJJ is the kind of near-perfect powder ski that intermediate skiers should not shy away from even if they have never had a wide ski before. As long as they promise to get pitted, that is.
