A new series of Best kiteboards are ready to hit the seas and oceans. All of these kiteboards have been tuned and refined to provide a new joy of riding to all kiteboarders out there. If new school and freeride are your games, then you should check out the 2013 Armada. As Best shaper and kiteboarding athlete Franz Schitzhofer says, the Armada V4 is a gigantic leap in performance.

Maximum performance and versatility are the key factors that make the 2013 Best Armada a powerful new school and freeride weapon. The board offers speed, power, pop and control at the highest possible levels, in a compact and light package. It is nearly 700 grams lighter than the previous version and offers significantly better performance.

It can jump higher, it has smoother landings and can reach a faster speed. The board features a special Step Rail design which assures optimal stiffness underneath the feet of the rider for optimal control. This feature also provides maximum lift and increased early planing performance. The board is engineered using Supremo wood core.

The core is profiled towards the tips to allow the rider perform smooth carving turns. Features like Torsion-X reinforcement and Vari-Damp flex control provide insane pop as well as precise handling and bomb proof durability. The optimized flex assures smooth landings and absorbs chop. The Best Armada can be used with bindings or straps, depending on the rider’s choice.
