ARMADA TRACER 108
The TRACER SERIES tells the ski world we like to do things differently here at Armada. Even though the focus lies on a stable and predictable ski in versatile conditions, we added 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.
Jack of all trades BC performer.
Even though the Tracer 108 is firmly focused on outstanding downhill performance, we’re always searching for the perfect combination of weight reduction and stability in this category. That’s why for 19/20 we paired an even lighter Poplar-Caruba wood core to a larger fiberglass package resulting in further decreased weight and added durability. The Tracer 108 ups the performance ante with dampening Adaptive Mesh, Titanal Reinforcement underfoot and AR 75 Sidewall construction to create just the right feel whether used by freeriding or touring enthusiasts.
• AR75 Sidewall
• Hybrid Caruba Core
A combination of lightweight woods and full-length hardwood stringers, the Hybrid Caruba core creates the ultimate in weight savings, agility and maneuverability without sacrificing security or dampness.
• EST Freeride Rocker
Fore body rocker and extra tip-taper combine to create EST for optimized float in the soft stuff. Positive camber under foot with no tail rocker ensures these skis stay on rails when carving is the priority.
• Comp Series Base
• Ti Binding Reinforcement
• Adaptive Mesh
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.
• Laminate Matrix
Laminate Matrix - A directional layering of fiberglass dictates the flex pattern and torsional rigidity to create the ultimate in quick response, forgiving and lively skis.
• 1.7 Impact Edge
1.7 Impact Edge - Light and strong, these heat-treated edges effect the feel of the ski minimally to ensure a snappy, lightweight feel for the skis.
Taper Tops - A slow and meticulous process of 3D milling of our wood-cores adds up to increased performance in faster edge-to-edge and more forgiving feel. Weight around the perimeter of the skis is reduced for a more maneuverable and livelier ski. A thickened profile down the center of the ski retains torsional rigidity and flexural stiffness for powering through turns or untracked stashes. Ski longer, harder thanks to Taper Top technology.
