Looking for a quick, nimble ski that hits the sweet spot of versatility but makes no compromises on downhill performance? The Armada Tracer 98 Skis are everyday workhorses that sit firmly in the new school of lightweight freeride. Weighing in a whopping 12% lighter than previous iterations they're perfect for a fleet-footed but ripping 50/50 touring setup, or if your knees have been screaming for something less fatiguing. With a 98mm waist, vibration damping Adaptive Mesh and durable fiberglass construction, the Tracer 98 is built to handle everything from the resort to the backcountry.
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
Taper Tops – Beveled topsheets shave mass and lower profile in high density snow, while strengthening the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.
Caruba Core – Armada's lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required in descending gnarly terrain.
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.
