About Armada Zero Short pants paradox 2024 skis
The no holds barred charging ski for smaller-framed shredders.
We all know it’s the size of the fight in the dog that matters. For too long smaller-framed shredders have been overlooked during ski development, relegated to half-baked shrunken chargers or noodly wigglers. Not anymore. The Short Pants Paradox was designed from the ground up with a 112 waist, powerful flex and long turn radius to provide high-performance big-mountain charging characteristics in a shorter length. Everyone from big mountain competition juniors to shredding women and men who don’t require the surface area and float of longer lengths can enjoy a ski designed to lace 20-meter turns down the fall line at high speeds while trusting the SPP to stand up to all the punishment they can dish out.
EST Freeride Rocker
Forebody rocker and extra tip taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber under foot with no tail rocker ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.
Armada's lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required for descending in the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in its quest to be ultralight.
Superior edge grip for precision on the hardest of snow surfaces.
Comp Series Base
Sintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.
2.1 All-Mountain Edge
Heat treated and built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability, this edge gives the best balance of durability and feel of Armada's whole collection.
Smear Tech Tail
A 3D beveled base in the tail creates a unique feel in all snow conditions. Less likely to catch in crud, self-centering in deep snow, and uncatchable on takeoffs, Smear Tech lets you float effortlessly whether sliding forwards, backwards, left, or right.
