Waist Width: 102
The KUFO 103 is Armada's absolute lightest ski, coming in at just 1,585 grams (177 cm length). It's similar to its older brother, the KUFO 108, but one thing really sets it apart: its Caruba core, which makes it 16 percent lighter than last year's model. Besides that, it's a very similar ski, just at a smaller width, ranging up to 120 mm at the tip. The KUFO 103 is part of Armada's Backcountry Touring series, which focuses on the constantly evolving ski touring scene. AR50 sidewalls are designed to decrease swing weight, Comp Series Bases are made of Armada's fastest base material, Laminate Matrix integrates layered fiberglass designed for an optimal flex pattern, CK Stringers (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) are designed to give the ski pop, and 1.7 impact edges, Armada's lightest yet strong edges, are designed for durability. Armada, founded in 2002, is based out of Costa Mesa, California.
