The all-new Invictus 95 is the little brother of the also all-new Invictus 95Ti, designed to offer a less stiff profile, but with nearly identical technology in every other way. While all of the other Invictus skis have titanal top and bottom layers designed for extra stiffness, this model is built to offer a softer and more forgiving experience for those who aren't gunning as hard as possible at all times. For something similar but wider, check out the Invictus 108Ti. For something nearly identical yet stiffer, check out the Invictus 95Ti. And for something similar but skinnier, check out the Invictus 89. The Invictus series includes a plethora of skis designed for big turns and high speeds all over the mountain. AR50 sidewalls are intended to decrease swing weight, Hybrid Double Zone Cores full of extra hard-wood laminates are designed for stabilization, AR Nose Rocker technology is designed to let the tips float over anything outside of the groomers, Comp Bases are made of Armada's fastest base material for top speeds, CK Stringers (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) are designed to give the ski pop, Laminate Matrix integrates fiberglass layered for an optimal flex pattern, and 2.2 edges (one of Armada's thickest) are intended to handle beat downs all season. Invictus is also Latin for unconquered, which is pretty darn badass. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.
