Armada TRACE 98 Skis
Cut from the same cloth as its big sister, the Trace 98 touts lightweight performance courtesy of its Caruba Core, and features enhanced maneuverability so you can slash every nook and cranny of your line. Built with the backcountry journey in mind, the 98 features metal-reinforced binding pads to absorb vibration while providing a little extra security when looking for fresh snow beyond resort boundaries.
- 1.7 Lightweight Edge
Light, strong, heat treated for durability
- AR75 Sidewall
25% more ABS sidewall coverage increases stability and reduces chatter, providing more predictability and confidence
- Comp Series Base
Armada’s fastest base
- EST All Mountain Rocker
Entry rocker with positive camber under foot with no tail rocker. Floats in soft snow while making sure the ski stays on rails
- Poplar Core
Stability, power and ease are paramount in this 100% Poplar wood core. For those looking for predictability and smoothness the Poplar core delivers in all snow conditions.
A 3D topsheet with beveled construction strengthens the ski's perimeter for maximum efficiency and stability.
- Ti Binding Reinforcement
- 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.
CAMBER PROFILE & FLEX
Entry rocker with positive camber under foot and no tail rocker. Promotes flotation in the soft snow while giving the ski great drive and edge hold on the hard pack.
