The flagship park ski for Armada, the AR7 is the company's go-to for park skiers. It's built a bit stiffer than some other park skis from Armada, like the THall and Pipe Cleaner, making it a good choice for those who like to get out of the park every once in a while and make some big, fast turns. A lot of this stability comes from the design of the AR50 sidewalls, which reduce swing weight, and CK Stringers (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) designed to give the ski more pop more than some of Armada's more rugged terrain-focused products. However, the main difference in this ski is it's unique Hybrid Triple Zone Core technology. Many of Armada's skis have light core technology, or double zone core technology, but this ski is constructed to be sturdier than them all. Park skiers who have a tendency to break skis every season should consider the AR7 as a top candidate from Armada. The AR7 is part of Armada's Park series, a category that the company was founded on back in the day. While the company does a good job with a variety of skis today, this Park Series is arguably their specialty. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.
