The Bantam is for the youngest rippers offering a tighter turn radius and user friendly design. The Bantam's solid construction ensures it is built to last and with less 'catchy' edges it's a little more forgiving. It is the only tool a mini- shred will need to conquer new terrain, keep up with their siblings, or outrun their parents.

Cap Sidewall - This method wraps the wood core with composite fiberglass layers creating a torsion box. The base assembly is inserted into the mold, then the fiberglass wrapped core and top material are added. A variable slant between the base and topsheet creates a super-durable and light ski with a balanced flex.
Inject Zone Core - PU injected core that is lightweight, responsive yet dampens out harsh hits from rails, and hard landings.
Positive Camber - Traditional camber engages the tip and tail of the ski, enhancing ease of entry and exit into and out of a turn, while maintaining solid edge hold.
S7 Base - Improved for 10/11, the new S7 features a gliding additive for increased speed and longevity. Armada's toughest base, find the S7 on any ski that's looking for rails, ledges, and boxes as much as snow.
Laminate Matrix - Armada know from the core out exactly how each ski should react, so three kinds of fiberglass laminates are used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x� pattern down the ski to control lateral flex. Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski. The permutations of the three fiberglasses are nearly limitless and allow Armada to precision tune the performance of every ski they make.
1.7 Impact Edge - The edge height and width is deliberately smaller and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness to increase durability and decrease weight.
