Armada's Invictus 108ti is a smooth, easy-turning ski that makes buttery turns anywhere there is soft snow. It has superior float and a nice playful nature. It is not the quickest turning ski in this category, and it does lose performance on harder snow.
Built with carbon and Kevlar stringers, as well as two layers ot titanal, Armada’s Invictus 108ti is designed to be a damp, smooth turning ski. Then mission accomplished, because this ski makes buttery long turns with ease and absolutely plows through cut-up snow. The board’s tip rocker adds effortless float, while the Comp Base (which Armada touts as its fastest), makes ripping long arcs in deep snow a wind burning thrill.
The doesn’t have the quickness and versatility of Rossignol’s Soul 7 or Salomon’s Q-105, and it does lose performance on hard snow. It will provide pure satisfaction for anyone who puts a premium on a smooth ride.
