They say

The all new Invictus uses carbon fibre strips from tip to tail to increase liveliness and reduce weight while also using top and bottom layers of Titanal to provide stability. It’s placed as the widest ski within Armada’s all mountain range.

We say

This is another freeride ski that feels built for hard charging skiers. The Invictus is fast, direct and responds well to being pushed by the skier, it’s absolutely rock solid on the edge with high levels of grip at any speed. This means it smashes through crud, blasts out long fast turns and feels very secure on steeper terrain. The downside to this high end performance is that it is quite a heavy ski that takes some effort to steer at slower speeds, and would feel harder work for skiers who are just getting into skiing backcountry skiing. Overall, a great ski for fast, confident skiers.

Tester Comments

James Allen
Awesome solid charging ski, but gets a bit heavy in tricky terrain.
Derek Chandler
Great for physical, aggressive skier. If you’ve got the right legs and attitude they will be awesome!
