Skis Armada Tracer 98 2021
About Armada Tracer 98 2021 skis
Everyday off-piste ski.
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. For 20/21 we paired a superlight, 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.
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.
Caruba Core – Armada's lightest wood species creates the best uphill feel while retaining the power and dampness required in descending gnarly terrain.
EST All Mtn Rocker
EST All Mtn Rocker – Rocker is paired with tapered sidecuts both tip and tail provide floatation in soft snow as well as forgiveness in turn shape. Camber underfoot maintains edge hold on the hardpack.
Comp Series Base
Comp Series Base – Sintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability
1.7 Impact Edge
1.7mm Impact Edge – Heat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.
Ti Binding Reinforcement
Titanal Binding Reinforcement – Rubber and Titanal are sandwiched together to dampen vibrations.
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 introduced through the edges either by ice, bumps and crud. Without additional weight, Adaptive mesh provides a smoother ride.
