Product Info

An all-mountain tool that lifts light but hits heavy, the Armada Trace 98 Skis are equally at home sliding out the backcountry gate at the area and heading up the skintrack far from civilization. Built light with a full Caruba wood core and thinner 1.7 Lightweight Edges, the Trace 98 still manages to excel in variable snow conditions, from firm to mank and everything in between. This is the perfect ski to pair with a hybrid binding like the Armada Shift to get the most out of two distinct skiing worlds.

Product Details

Rocker Type

EST All Mountain RockerRocker 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.

Flex

Flex (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)Tip: 5 | Mid: 6 | Tail: 3

Core

Caruba CoreArmada's lightest wood species keeps the overall weight low while retaining the power and dampness you want while skiing.

Laminates

Adaptive MeshA 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.

Titanal Binding ReinforcementRubber and Titanal are sandwiched together to dampen vibrations.

Sidewalls

AR75 SidewallsSidewalls 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.

Base

Comp Series BaseSintered UHMW polyethylene with added carbon aids in speed and durability

Edges

1.7mm Impact EdgeHeat treated, built to avoid excess weight while maintaining durability.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
