Light enough to scamper uphill on a tour but burly enough to slay when you point em down the fall line, the Armada Trace 108 Skis are built for the modern freerider looking to dip in and out of resort boundries. The 108mm waist and EST freeride rocker profile yearn for the soft stuff, but this everyday crusher also handles variable snow with aplomb thanks to vibration damping adaptive mesh constuction and a responsive Poplar wood core. Lighten your load without compromise this season on the Armada Trace 108.
EST Freeride Rocker – Forebody rocker and extra tip-taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber underfoot ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.
Flex Pattern (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – Tip: 6.5 | Waist: 7 | Tail: 7.5
Taper Tops – Beveled topsheets shave mass and lower profile in high density snow, while strengthening the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.
Poplar Core – Stability, power and ease are paramount in this 100% Poplar wood core. For those looking for predictability and smoothness the Poplar core delivers in all snow conditions.
Adaptive Mesh – A variable angle weave optimizes vibration damping along the length of the ski to make the ski more damp, stable and touch without adding weight.
Titanal Binding Reinforcement – Rubber and Titanal are sandwiched together to dampen vibrations.
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 on snow.
1.7mm Impact Edge – Heat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.
I-Clip Tails – Ready for climbing skin tailclips.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
