Gear Buddy Opinion
The Stranger is a super cool ski that Armada released for 2020. The aim of this ski was to merge the amazing feeling of laying out deep cares/ snappy slalom turns with freestyle capabilities. This ski isnt intended for pow, big jumps or gates, but to optimize the fun even in rough conditions. This is a very soft ski so you may experience some chatter at high speeds, but you'll be having so much fun it wont matter.
I have a pair of Armada TST’s and a pair of the JJ UL’s already in the quiver but I wanted something to really perform on early season groomers yet versatile enough to ski crud and even some mild powder days. I’m so happy I bought these as they absolutely rip!!!
The Stranger holds edge incredibly well at high speed, has an incredible turning radius and is still super super playful.
I’m stoked about these and would recommend them to anyone - 100%. I live in Utah and ski Alta and Snowbird.
