Armada Tracer 98 2022
Light enough to tour on every day, and strong enough to shred the areas in between, the Armada Tracer 98 Skis are one of the best choices going for a do-it-all quiver ski with a backcountry focus. Armada starts with their lightest Caruba wood core, adds a bit more fiberglass than the OG version, and finishes it off with a lightweight 1.7mm edge and their Comp Series sintered base. Mount this up with a hybrid binding like the Shift or a pure tech binding for less weight, and watch the sparks fly.
EST All Mountain Rocker – Rocker is paired with tapered sidecuts both tip and tail provide floatation in soft snow as well as forgiveness in turn shape. Camber underfoot maintains edge hold on the hardpack.
Flex (1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – Tip: 5 | Mid: 6 | Tail: 3
Taper Tops – Beveled top edges shave weight and bulk
Caruba Core – Armada's lightest wood species keeps the overall weight low while retaining the power and dampness you want while skiing.
Adaptive Mesh – A variable angle weave optimizes vibration damping along the length of the ski to make the ski more damp, stable and tough without adding weight. In the ends of the ski, the weave runs nearly tip-to-tail, filtering chatter and tip bounce. Underfoot, the weave runs nearly side-to-side, filtering vibration introduced through the edges either by ice, bumps and crud. Without additional weight, Adaptive mesh provides a smoother ride.
Titanal Binding Reinforcement
AR75 Sidewalls – Sidewalls provide improved edge pressure under the boot, while cap constuction in the tip and tail provides smooth turn initiation and less hookiness - 75% sidewall, 25% cap.
Comp Series Base – Sintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability
1.7 Lightweight Edges
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
