They say

Answering the demand for a high performance women’s ski, the Victa 97Ti is the best tool for the whole mountain. Carbon Kevlar struts keep the skis lively, while the Ti plate creates dampness as you power through powder or groomers.

We say

The Armada is immediately easy to use and has a nice stable, predictable character to it. On the piste it has very high levels of grip, there seemed to be no limits on the speed and the edge angle it could take, any skier will have an awesome time blasting out big fast arcs on the groomers. Away from the pistes and into powder it felt well balanced and is generally a ski which you do not really need to think about, just play with the terrain. Some testers felt that the predictable nature and well rounded performance worked perfectly as an all rounder, but lacked any huge excitement in any one area.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Felt safe on this ski, like we could let it go and the ski would stay balanced underfoot.
Eilidh McLeod
Easy to use and has a nice stable feel about it in bumpy conditions. Good absorbtion and solid turns on the piste.
