Best Says:

Designed for new school and freeride riders just like you, the Armada v4 delivers maximum performance and versatility. Our all Pre-Preg lay-up, Torsion-X reinforcement and Vari-Damp flex control give you precise handling, outrageous durability and weighs up to 700 grams less than last year’s boards. Profiling the Supremo wood core towards the tips allows smooth progressive carving through the turns and gives you ample flex for checking in even the roughest landings. The Armada v4 boards deliver top flight performance and construction quality once again. The blend of light weight, high strength, easy handling and great looks makes the Armada v4 the ideal freeride and new school board for demanding riders like you.

Our Testers Say:

“Handled the chop great and felt fast. This size felt a little small for me, but even so this would be a great higher-wind twin tip for me,” Marko Bartscherer.

“Board felt light and went upwind great. Very smooth in the chop and comfortable straps and pads,” Walid Jomaa.

Meet the 2013 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The 2013 Best Armada is a relatively lightweight and beautifully finished twin tip. It features thin, flexible tips and a shallow double concave and rail channels on the bottom. Our testers reported good upwind ability, good pop, and a very smooth ride through the chop.

The Armada included simple adjustable straps and pads, but tester’s commented that they were were comfortable despite being an older-style design. For a system with separate pads and straps, these were very easy to install onto the board.
