The biggest descents ask a lot from your equipment. You’ll need tenacious edge hold and dependable stability for billy goating through no-fall zones while maintaining enough float to surf high-speed turns through creamy pow and perfect corn. The Locator 96 covers all these bases, which is no small feat. The 96 mm waist quickly gets up on edge and bites hard on even the iciest sidehills, all at a weight that’s low enough for the biggest objectives on your tick list. The progressive shape and blended rocker lines make the 96 a versatile, confident performer in a variety of conditions from meadow skipping in hero snow to traversing refrozen sastrugi in the high peaks.


    Tech Features
    • Caruba Core - Armada's lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required for descending in the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in its quest to be ultralight.
    • EST Freeride Rocker - Forebody rocker and extra tip taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber under foot with no tail rocker ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.
    • Comp Series Base - Sintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability on snow.
    • 1.7 Lightweight Edge - Light and strong, these heat-treated edges effect the feel of the ski minimally to ensure a snappy, lightweight feel.
    • TI Binding Dampener - Below the binding, a sandwich of rubber, titanal, and finally more rubber works to dampen vibration that otherwise chatters into your bots and shortens your day. Ski bell to bell with extra damping provided.
    • Carbon Reinforcement - Specially placed carbon stringers add pop and stiffness without adding weight.
