If you don’t have fun on the Victa 87Ti, it’s you, not the ski. Testers ranked this ski No.2 in Playfulness—no surprise since fun is Armada’s bread and butter. What did surprise testers is how reliably this ski performed on edge. A layer of Titanal and a carbon/Kevlar strut ensures the ski is tough enough to take on hardpack, but a poplar wood core and generous tip rocker mean the Victa 87Ti retains a lively energy. Short turns are her jam, just don’t expect her to wow you in the crud. 

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Stability at Speed
