Armada s entry in the fast-n-light sweepstakes is a winner, and Armada Tracer 88 Skis aren't just featherweights -- they also happen to ski damn well in any of the huge range of snow conditions you'll find in the backcountry. At just 1200 grams in a 172cm length, the Tracer 88 goes toe-to-toe with the lightest skis in the class, and comes ready to rock with I-Clip tails and beveled Tapertop topsheets. If you love the way Armada skis perform, but haven't added one to your touring quiver because of weight, now's your chance with the Armada Tracer 88.
EST All-Mountain Rocker – Entry rocker with positive camber under foot with subtle tail rocker. Floats in soft snow while making sure the ski stays on rails.
Flex Pattern (1=Soft, 10=Stiff) – Tip: 6, Waist: 7, Tail: 7
Tapertops – Beveled topsheets shave mass and lower profile in high density snow, while strengthening the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.
Tour Ultra-Lite Core – Armada's lightest wood species create the best up-hill feel while retaining the power and dampness required to descend the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in performance in its quest to be ultra-light.
Titanal Binding Reinforcement
Laminate Matrix – Directional layering of fiberglass dictates flex pattern and torsional rigidity.
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 – Armada's fastest sintered graphite base.
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.
