Armada Tracer 98 Ski 2021

The crown jewel of the Tracer Series, the Tracer 98 is your everyday off-piste ski built with versatility in mind. A layer of Adaptive Mesh keeps the ride damp and stable while the beveled top-edges create a lighter ski that can handle anything your ski legs throw its way. We paired a super light, 100% Caruba Wood core to a more durable fiberglass construction making the Tracer 98 even lighter and more durable. The quickest edge-to-edge and best performing on the hardpack the Tracer 98 is the true 1-ski quiver from resort to backcountry.

The TRACER SERIES tells the ski world Armada like to do things differently. Even though the focus lies on a stable and predictable ski in versatile conditions, the addition of subtle rocker and taper regions to keep the Tracer series nimble, playful and able to release the tail on command. From lightweight freeride, to high altitude exploring, to ultra-light touring, this 4-piece series is built for skiers that paint outside the lines on the uphill, sidehill, and big mountain downhill.

EST Freeride Rocker
 Rockered tip and tail combined with positive camber underfoot, to provide flotation in soft snow and create remarkable edge on the harder stuff.

Hybrid Ultra-Light Core A combination of lightweight woods throughout and hardwood laminates underfoot, the Hybrid Ultra-Lite Core created the ultimate in agility and maneuverability without sacrificing any security or dampness underfoot.

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 from ice, bumps and crud. A smoother ride, optimized in 1 layer of material.

Caruba Core -

Our lightest wood species creates the best up-hill feel while retaining the power and dampness required in descending the gnarliest of terrain. This core makes no concessions in performance in its quest to be ultra-light.
Caruba Core

Taper Tops -

3D milling of the woodcores reduces weight around the perimeter to make these skis more maneuverable and livlier edge to edge. A thick profile down the center of the ski retains torsional ridgidity and flexural stiffness for powering through turns or untracked stashes. Ski longer, harder thanks to Taper Top technology

Comp Series Base Armada's fastest base.

1.7 mm Impact Edge Light, strong, and heat treated for durability.
