Best Armada V2

Best Armada V2
STYLE:  Freeride
SIZE:     135 x 40 cm    
FINS:     4.5 cm G10

The Armada is a pure freeride demon with a nice overall build that features Best’s new Supremo, wood laminate core. The light weight gives the Armada a lively, easy-to-throw-around feel. Shallow and a wide parallel outline give the Armada plenty of get up and go. It has extra flex in the wide and thin tips that are fun for pressing and throwing weight into the back foot for some controlled pop. The extra flex in the tips also makes off-axis landing easier. The Armada is a fun, do-everything shape and with the improvements in construction qualities this year it presents itself as a value leader with plenty of pop for the punch. Anyone interested in all-terrain freeriding fun, with a slick new board with plenty of quality features can rely on the Armada to improve their riding.

Footbed and Strap System
The Best footbed and strap systems are simple, traditional Velcro adjustable straps with some nice contoured asymmetrical shaping. The footbed is uniformly cushioned and nice and thick for good dampening and no heel bruising. Simple colour scheme works well with the slick new look of the Armada.
