The directional Invictus 89Ti stayed true to Armada’s freestyle roots with top marks in playfulness, but testers found the ski could also arc turns on edge with the best of them. With a poplar core, Titanal, carbon fiber stringers, and a damping Innegra mesh laminate, the Invictus 89Ti is an all-around frontside tool that lets skiers get down the mountain with a smile.

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Versatility

WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
