About Armada Locator 88 2023 skis
The ultralight backcountry scalpel designed for the biggest objectives.
The Locator 88 is the ultralight, precision backcountry tool primed to take you farther, faster. Set those FKTs on the uphill comfortable with the knowledge you’ll be rewarded on the descents with a powerful performance to get down in style. Despite the lightest construction of any Armada ski, the Locator 88 is a confident, versatile descender with dogged edge hold when you need it most and enough rocker to keep you on top of the soft stuff. The 88 is light done right because we’re only going up so we can get down.
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.
TI Binding Dampener
Below the binding, a sandwich of rubber, titanal, and finally more rubber works to dampen vibration that otherwise chatters into your bots and shortens your day. Ski bell to bell with extra damping provided.
Specially placed carbon stringers add pop and stiffness without adding weight.
Comp Series Base
Sintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.
1.7 Lightweight Edge
Light and strong, these heat-treated edges effect the feel of the ski minimally to ensure a snappy, lightweight feel.
