Manufacturers description
The Alpha 2 brings the revolutionary Elf Shoe Tech of the Alpha 1 to the masses. Subtle differences like a modified Hybrid AR Core 1 and the S7 Base ensure uncompromised durability, which is important when paired with game-changing ski design, because it will dramatically enhance the ski’s ability to butter jumps and press rails and boxes. Whether it’s further across the park or higher above the pipe, the Alpha 2 is proof of concept for Armada’s Elf Shoe Technology.

Strenghts:
+ Light
+ Quick Curved
+ Rocker
+ Pop

Weaknesses:
-Flower in the piste if you want to pull on because of the rocker.
-The price

Summary:
A fun skiing that's more for the park than a pist but works there with the dock, but if you drive more pist, you should choose alpha 1, because it is a bit harder and has a race coat.

But as I said it's a park ski because it has a more robust coat and softer.

I drive with the griffon bond. Thanks to a light bonding, it becomes funerier and easier to spin and make butters with.
The installation on mine drives me with Factory recommended and it is absolutely perfect.
I think you should not mount the tie my middle because of the fact that the surface of the tail becomes more than the nose. Will be a bit shady then.
It's the best ski I've had and have.

Riding style: 50% park, 45% piste and 5% pads
Length on the ski: 176 cm

Strenghts:
+ Extremely lightweight
+ Rocker
+ Sidewall close to the toy, softer closer to the tops -> sickly nice to drive butters with.

Weaknesses:
-We take some time to get used to them (IOM rocker / ElfShoeTech)
-Heared that the tops of the skis are worn out quickly, have not noticed it myself.
-DRAW, MUST HAVE FETT ME PARA BRUR

Summary:
Alpha 2: the ears are extremely beautiful and lightweight skis, however, they are not directly super-easy-going. It takes a while before you get to the ski slopes. They are also damn expensive, but I think they are worth every penny. If you mount on the Schizo bindnigen, they are also damn allround. They rock in on the rails and the jumps, while they work well in the offpiste (IOM Rocker) and they are actually okay in the piste, but require some of their riders ... To me they were absolutely perfect!

Strenghts:
- Terribly stable
- lightweight
good pop
- fast-swinging
- because of 'the early rise' in the tip and tail you can buy a little longer ski and still have a really smooth skid in the pillows, and if you want to drive a little pist but hurry has the stability of the air
- Easy to spin, actually absolutely amazing!

Weaknesses:
actually does not come to anybody at all

Summary:
Really good park skiing that also works in the offpiste and the piste. The difference between alpha 1 and alpha 2 is that alpha 2 is a bit stiffer and slightly heavier (barely noticeable) and so has alpha 1 a racer coat so it goes a bit faster while alpha 2 is a more durable skid that has a coat that can handle rails more . According to my information from, among others, Jakob Wester, there is no notice of the two models after a few days of innings. Alpha 2an weighs about 100 grams more if I remember correctly which is nothing! Like a little apple type haha. If you are in the grade in the qualification between alpha 2 and alpha 1, buy alpha 2 if you are traveling a lot. Both are as good on the jump!

Strenghts:
easy to make short-range in the high, thanks to the short turning radius.
rocker in tip o tail makes you do not have to land just as perfect to let it stomp under your feet after your 12th!
Good carrying characteristics thanks to ElfShoe + rocker - leads to a very stable skid.
a bit closer to the grab at the ends because they are extra curved;)
Slightly spun type ..

Weaknesses:
the price is not nice, 5400-5700 without any binding!
the field is hard on the ground because it has rocks, so you do not have as much skiing to use if you are going to make sick-push pops when you get closest to the sky, with a rocker skiing behind the foot it will be a little cork if you should shoot with every centimeter of the ski, teroi = internship !? !!
May feel stiff for those who prefer soft skis, dub cork 14 on really big jumps so you want tight skis! take this :)
May feel clumsy and heavy.
May be so you do not like the ski ,,, that you never become homies. is it worth six thousand?

Summary:
Smart skis that flow well and are stiff. Nice to cork o skew landings - stable! Has a short swing radius so you can play slalom skaters :) Easy screwed and nice. Quality but expensive. May feel clumsy and not at all fun .. either get used to and smile or you will never be friends. Go on longer than usual and maintain the ski then oh then it will be fine ..!

Strenghts:
stable
sustainable
Probably rubbed in pillows to be a parkside

Weaknesses:
A bit stable enough to be the soft version
Not for free

Summary:
I have only been going to these for two weekdays / weeks in Juvass. At first I cried almost a bit. What did I buy? Heavy-angled and a little shabby. And almost completely impossible to control the switch. But after the first day I had taken the gallop. Then they came to life suddenly. Stabila in landings and easy and manageable in the air in a way I did not know about skiing before. Still, I think they are a bit bit hard and hence difficult to do butters with.

At the moment, I only weighed somewhere around 69 kilos, but now I have put on a bit and hope that they feel a bit softer.

However, I have not had the chance to try the pillows, but they should be great for a 82mm skirt!
