If Armadas of the past always seemed either too park- or powder-specific for your purposes, the Invictuses will surprise you. The 89Ti, middle sibling in a family that runs from 85 to 108 mm, is a balanced and capable all-mountain ski, slarvy in soft snow, carvy on hard stuff. Ex racers won’t be disappointed (there’s metal in there), but there’s still a playful side that you’d expect from Armada. Testers admired its blend of new-school and big-mountain character. “Very well rounded for a large segment of the skiing population,” said Dyer.

Strengths: Hard-Snow Integrity, Quickness/Maneuverability, Stability at Speed
