What Armada says about the ARG II UL

“The ski that started a revolution is back and better than ever. The ARG II UL’s reverse sidecut, massive 133 mm waist and full-length AR Powder Rocker retain the classic silhouette of the original ARG, while a new ultralight Caruba Core cuts weight to deliver an even more maneuverable, surfy ride. This no-compromise powder ski has unparalleled float, pivots on a dime and unleashes your creativity by picking up speed quickly and letting you make any turn shape imaginable in the deepest snow. Epic conditions deserve an epic ski.”

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Armada ARG II UL:

Tips: 6.5
Shovels: 6-7
In Front of Toe Piece: 7.5-9.5
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-8.5
Tails: 8-6.5

Overall, the flex is very similar to the non-UL ARG II it replaces, but the UL version is a touch stiffer at both ends.
