A new ski from Armada, the Invictus 95Ti is designed for groomers and general all mountain skiing. It has a 95 mm waist that isn't too fat for a normal days or too slim for a powder day, and Titanal integrated for smooth turns without chatter and other vibrations. For something similar but wider, check out the Invictus 108Ti. For something nearly identical yet softer, check out the Invictus 95. And for something similar but skinnier, check out the Invictus 89Ti. 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.
