The THall, pro skier Tanner Hall's signature model, is built for all things freestyle. Like other Armada Park skis, the THall has CK Stringers in the tail (strips of Carbon and Kevlar) that are designed to allow the ski to pop. Also similar to other Armada Park Skis, the THall has positive camber designed for smooth carving, AR50 sidewalls built to decrease swing weight, and thick 2.5 mm impact edges intended to handle beat downs on jumps and rails. Unlike other Armadas, however, this ski has its own, one-of-a-kind core technology, the Hybrid T-Zone Core. This technology is manufactured to offer a softer tip for butters and nose presses and a stiff tail designed to handle harsh landings and high speeds. And while it has some stability, this is one of Armada's softest skis, intended to pop around the mountain. The THall 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.
