What we like:
The previous version of the Armada was a huge success with all of our team who wanted a strapped board for boosting, cruising and strapped freestyle. We're really stoked that the new version is even stronger and lighter!

The best part is that the general shape and feel are very similar to the previous year (it's just lighter and stronger now)!

We really like the new Mercury footstraps which we feel gave us an impressive amount lot of control and support.

Insider Info:
If you're a bigger rider, you may find that the biggest size isn't big enough! It would be nice to see something in the 142 range for this board... Other than that - it's hard to fault.

Why you want the 2014 Best Armada:
Because you like to ride in straps and want a board that will never hold you back. The Armada is an awesome choice for any intermediate to advanced rider.
Best Description:
The Armada is a performance freeride and newschool twintip and it’s the ideal board for advanced kiters who session all day long.

At the center of the Armada is a CNC machined and laminated Paulownia wood core. Discrete inserts are plugged into the core and reinforced with a tip-to-tail UNI-D tape reinforcement for maximum strength and durability, allowing you to choose between straps or bindings. We wrap the core inside a 100% uni-directional, Pre-Preg lay-up and finish it off with an impact resistant ABS rail. This Supremo Wood Core construction means the Armada can be up to 700 grams lighter than less advanced boards and makes it one of the lightest boards you can own.

Originally developed for top secret aerospace applications Basalt fiber is now used in high-tech applications where its high strength, light weight and improved damping can be beneficial. You’ll find Basalt fiber in windmill blades and racing yachts and of course in every Armada board. The new Armada uses our exclusive, eco friendly Basalt Fiber Tec. Basalt is 20% stronger than fiberglass and provides more progressive and better controlled damping than carbon; so we can make our boards lighter and better damped than the competition. This season we added a little Rock to your board because we know how you like to roll.

If your skills have outgrown your current board and you are looking for a performance freestyle board that is forgiving enough to let you push hard all day long and has the versatility to tackle all riding styles then you need the Armada. Set sail with the Armada today and get blown away.

Designer's Vision:
"On the Armada V5 I tried to optimize the positive features of V4 with a clear target: pushing the limits! The new rockerline of the Armada V5 in combination with new Basalt damping elements guarantee every rider an optimum mix of performance and fun in all conditions." - Franz Schitzhofer
