The median-width version of Armada s backcountry line, the Armada Tracer 98 Skis are a perfect balance of fresh snow float and groomer glide, edgehold on hard snow and float in deeper stuff. Innegra™ fiber mesh is added for strength and to help eliminate mass, and the ski comes equipped with the ultra fast Comp Base and I-Clip tail for quick and secure skin attachments.
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: 6.5, Waist: 7, Tail: 7.5
Tapertops – Beveled topsheets shave mass and lower profile in high density snow, while strengthening the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.
Hybrid Ultra Light Core – A combination of lightweight woods throughout and hardwood laminates underfoot creates the ultimate in agility and maneuverability without sacrificing any security or dampness.
Xrystal Mesh Damping – Xrystal Mesh combines Innegra™ Olefin fiber with carbon to form an extremely damp and impact resistant laminate layer.
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.
